Why has this gymnast drawn the ire of the Islam community?

Farah Ann Abdul Hadi a 21 year old Malaysian gymnast has had to endure the wrath of social media after allegations the gold winning medalist revealed the shape of her vagina after wearing tight leotards.

Despite the gymnast’s dazzling gold medal accomplishments at the Southeast Asian games, the woman’s dress sense has come to be intensely scrutinized after claims that the woman’s private parts could be seen courtesy of a ‘too tight’ leotard Hadi wore during the contest.

Hadi reportedly pulled off a ‘flawless floor routine,’ scoring 13.733 against Indonesia and Vietnam, according to The New Paper.

Nevertheless, rather than paying homage to the female athlete’s astounding performance, many instead took to one media Facebook’s fan page to condemn Hadi’s outfit.

‘Until she’s dead too people can see the shape of her vagina and aurat,’ commented one Facebook user on a photo of her announcing that she had won gold.

Whilst another user wrote: ‘If you don’t want to wear a headscarf, at least wear tights to cover up your thighs. Because that’s the aurat (private parts) you have to cover and shouldn’t be displayed to men.’

‘Aurat’ is an Arabic word that refers to genitalia and other places on a person’s body that should be covered, according to The Malay Mail Online.

Tweeted the gymnast in response: ‘Empty cans make the most noise.’

Reacting to the fiasco, former Wanita Umno chief, Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz opined that the public have choices in their lives, and they can choose not to watch anything which they considered improper for them.

Reiterating: ‘They have a choice. They don’t have to see or watch anything which is considered as indecent in their personal opinion, or inappropriate.’

Responding to the woman’s outfit, Harussani Zakaria, a Malaysian top cleric mandated gymnastics was not for Muslim women.

Offering in a statement: ‘Gymnastics is not for Muslim women. It is clear that exposing one’s aurat and the shape of one’s body is haram (forbidden in Islam). If Muslim women want to participate in gymnastics, they have to find outfits which cover the aurat and this, in turn, might not be suitable for the sport.’

Since the incident, government minister, Jamil Khir Baharom has expressed concern over Hadi’s leotard and the need to review sports attire for athletes following complaints.

Told the minister in a statement: ‘Not only in sports, but in all areas, Islam does not deny the responsibility of closing the aurat be it for men or women. This is something that cannot be denied or challenged, because this is the view of Islam.’

Whilst the athlete continues to draw criticism she has also gained an onslaught of support on facebook and twitter, with the gymnast thanking those who chose to support her in recent days.

  1. Thats just plain ridiculous, she supposed to wear some coveralls or what? I respect every religion/faith based belief that anyone chooses to believe in, but u gotta be kidding me with this shite. Not only is she beautiful & talented, but she has the class & drive that those who choose to berate her wish they had. This girl is made to feel like a trashy harlequin because it makes others uncomfortable…smfh. btw, they just showed their true perverted sides by focusing on her “aurat”, instead of her wonderful, award-winning performance. She should be praised for being a talented, respectable female role model for ur horrible country, yet I bet shes persecuted & made to feel less than dirt when she arrives.

  2. Her wardrobe is comparable to the others.
    Her character seems far superior.
    Let’s hope she helps other muslims to rise above their culture.

  3. This to me is absolutely hilarious. Notice that NOT ONE WORD was uttered about the leotards of the other girls, but they chose to single out the lovely, vibrant young lady who won SIX medals with her excellence, perseverance and courage. Apparently, it is not quite as objectionable to wear a leotard as long as you are not one of those who bring honor, pride and distinction to your country. They should grow their beards longer so they can tape them over their eyes, and change the channel!!! Out of sight, out of mind, they say! .
