Islamic cleric from India:
Mufti Athar Kasmi from the Islamic university Darul Uloom issued a religious decree (the so-called fatwa) saying that Muslim women should not watch men playing football.

According to the ruling, observing men 'with bare knees' violates the principles of Islam and is forbidden for women. Kasmi is a clergyman in Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama, India's largest Islamic, Sunni seminary based in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. Founded at the end of the 19th century, the university attracts a large number of Muslim students from around the world. In addition, it is one of the few institutes in the region that teaches Islam entirely in Arabic.

The priest also reprimands men who allow their wives to watch the ball even on television.

- Do not you have shame or are you afraid of God, letting her watch such things? - he said in a Friday sermon. - Why do women have to watch these football matches? What will they gain from this? They look only at the players' thighs, they pay no attention and will not even know what the result will be.

Kasmi's fatwa, however, remains in contradiction with the fact that the Sunni kingdom of Saudi Arabia allowed women to watch matches at football stadiums earlier this month.
