Hotel haram

Australian racism is again in the news with a female Muslim soccer player refusing to attend a disciplinary hearing held in a function room at a Perth hotel. So, where's the racism? The player chooses not to attend the hearing because the hotel bar serves alcohol and Football West refuses to change the venue to accommodate her, noting that the function room can be accessed without going through the bar. Thus the whole building is obviously out of bounds for Muslims.

Refusing to enter buildings where alcohol is served or consumed must make life rather difficult and travel nigh on to impossible.

Or hospitals which use alcohol as a sanitary product.

"Ms Anwan, a teacher at a Perth Christian school, was sent off by the referee for "violent conduct", defined under soccer's laws as "excessive force or brutality against an opponent when not challenging for the ball"."

"claim was sparked when the opposition goalkeeper attempted to pull off her religious headdress."
