Refuse to Remove The Hijab, Indonesian Blind Judo Athlete Is Disqualified

10/08/2018
One of Indonesian representatives was disqualified from the class of 52 kg Blind Judo sport of low vision classification in Asian Para Games 2018 because she refused to remove the hijab.

Her name is Miftahul Jannah. This 21-year-old woman is committed to her principal to not to remove the hijab.

"Whatever the risk, I will not remove the hijab," said Miftah, yesterday (7/10).

Strangely, based on information from Miftah's relatives, the provisions forbidding athletes from wearing the hijab were only decided yesterday, the result of a technical meeting held on Sunday (7/10).

"It should be told in advance, or at least a week before," said Alam, a relative who accompanied Miftah on Monday (8/10).

The President of the Indonesian National Paralympic Committee (NPC) Senny Marbun, who was tried to be contacted, was reluctant to comment further. "Wow, that's heavy. Very sensitive, Sir. Just ask the coach," Senny said.

Latif, Blind Judo coach confirmed that the rules for banning the use of the new headscarf were decided yesterday. His efforts to fight for Miftah when attending a technical meeting so that he could still compete, did not make results.

"This rule was only applied yesterday from the results of technical meetings," Latif said when contacted Monday (8/10).

"We have tried to fight for it. Just the reason for this ban is due to safety factors. The heaviest punishment is disqualification," he continued.

While based on the information obtained by Miftah, the ban on veils is because they are considered the same as shin guard. "Because the veil is considered as a protective device such as shin guard and so on," said Miftah.

However, on Monday (8/10) Miftah continued to go to the arena. Unfortunately, the athlete born in Aceh Besar was disqualified by the referee.

"Feeling sad, yes. Because 10 months passed a series of exercises until the hands can't move, crack. But the end result is like this (disqualified). IBSA's decision will not change again," said Miftah.

She hopes, there are changes to the rules that allow athletes to wear hijab in Blind Judo sports. "Because this is privacy, covering the aurat is not prohibited. Hopefully this kind of occurrence in Indonesia can change much better than the present," he hoped.
