Cricket Australia takes a principled stand against Islamic Afghanistan

Reader comment on item: Women and the Koran: The Status of Women in Islam

Submitted by Prashant (India), Jan 12, 2023 at 01:52

Dear Dr Pipes,

Cricket Australia the national governing body of Cricket in Australia recency decided to cancel a three match series against Afghanistan's men's cricket team due to Muslim Afghanistan's new restrictions on the women in Afghanistan. People will recall that the Islamic regressive regime in Afghanistan banned university education for women in Afghanistan. I salute Cricket Australia for taking this principled stand against the Islamic tyranny.

Meanwhile, the Indian Muslim taxi driver who drove me around recently proudly proclaimed that he was a proud father of 6 boys and 2 girls. I dare to think that if his community had more free university educated women, he would not have been going around producing 8 children in a resource starved developing country like India.

I once again admire CA for challenging the Islamic Theocracy of Afghanistan. I think until women and minorities get proper rights in Afghanistan, male cricketers from Afghanistan should not be allowed to play in the IPL (the Indian Professional (cricket) League).
