    It’s Official! FIFA rules in favour of Religious Headgear

    http://sikhactivist.net/its-official-fifa-rules-in-favour-of-religious-headgear/

    It’s official soccers international governing body FIFA has ruled in favour of authorisinghead covers for religious purposes during all matches.

    Yes, that means Quebec must now adopt the international bodies regulations, meaning both Muslim women and Sikhs will be provided protection when stepping onto the soccer field. FIFA did add that male players will also be authorized to play following a request from the Sikh community in Canada.

    The only the string attached is that the head cover must match the team jersey.

    So, congratulations folks, racism 0 – common decency 1.
