If the IOC and International Judo Federation are sincere about wanting Shahrkhani to participate, they should allow her to compete with some kind of head covering.

In fact, head coverings are commonly seen in judo. One only needs to google "judo headgear" to see a variety of protective judo head coverings. These cover the back, top and sides of the head. The only additional part of the body covered by a headscarf would be the neck. What's the problem? Are the IOC and International Judo Federation creating a problem where there is none?

I'm sure that millions of women want to see Shahrkhani compete and will be cheering her on. And obviously she has the full support of her family. Go, Wujdan!

The purpose of the Hijab is to protect men from becoming aroused by the woman. It is to prevent him from sinning and if the muslim men want muslim women to wear this then why are they watching other women? Is this not causing them to sin as well? Maybe they should be banned from watching other women who are not in Hijab.
