Middle Eastern paralympic athlete 'refuses' to shake hands with the Duchess

It's not for me me to think if he did right or wrong. It's what has been said in Islam.

The question "Do you think Mehrdad should have shook hands with Kate?" is in itself wrong because you are putting him under the spotlight as if he made a mistake in doing what he did. The Duchess is the one to be under the spotlight here. She's a public figure and she was certainly briefed of the Muslim custom prior to meeting the athlete. Therefore, the question should be directed to her wrong action and not to the athlete's action. However, knowing the Arab stand against Iranians, I am not surprised the question is twisted and biased at the root.
