Males allowed to view female athletes who are decently clad: Perlis Mufti
KOTA BARU Males can be allowed into sporting events provided females athletes are decently clad.

Perlis Mufti Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin said organisers of sporting events which require much physical movement, must observe two elements.

One is to advocate fitness through health-beneficial physical activities while the other is to ensure such activities do not lead to negativity, such as arousing males.

If both can be balanced, then males should be allowed to view female athletes in action, Dr Mohd Asri said in an interview.

He was commenting on a statement by state women and sports committee chairman Abdul Fatah Mahmood that males would be barred from being part of the audience for the inaugural Malaysian All-Women Games to be hosted here this Saturday.

Some 1,000 female athletes from throughout the country will participate in the two-day event to be officiated by Mentri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.

Fatah said males will be allowed to view only the opening ceremony.

Dr Mohd Asri said it is any government's right to sanction any sporting event on its terms and conditions.

He said women should not be exploited, which is why Islam called on them to be disciplined in their attire and to clothe parts of their body which tend to be viewed as arousing.

Anything done to safeguard morality for any religion must be lauded and supported, Dr Mohd Asri said.
