Pakistani Women’s Football Team Snatches Historic Win At The SAFF Championship. But Journalist Wants To Question Their ‘Shorts’. Priorities, Janaab!

By  | 

When will there be a time when a woman’s worth will be more than what she wears, how she looks, and what she does? Well, clearly this still seems to be a reality very far away. There is news from Pakistan that is making headlines and leaves me with all kinds of questions. The women’s football team in Pakistani has given their country a moment of pride with their first huge win at the South Asian Football Federation Championship, but back in their home, they were called out on the most absurd point, that too by a journalist, profession that demands a progressive mindset. Sadly the journalist did not abide by the ethics of his profession when he decided to ask about the length of women players’ shorts.

The women’s football team played competed in the first International tournament in eight years and achieved an excellent milestone with a sweeping victory against the Maldives. But when they returned to their country, one of the journalists clearly had no interest in reporting about their journey towards achieving this success, and rather ended up pointing out “ Pakistan is an Islamic state, and therefore, why are the women not wearing leggings instead of shorts?” He really has different priorities and one that has no place in this progressive world. The women’s team made their country proud and the journalist, who is supposed to pass the news of this big achievement to the public came to this press conference without any homework. All he was worried about was the length of the dress instead of their hard work and success.

The coach’s reply was quite on point. As per News, the team’s coach Adeel Rizki in response to this clearly stated that the game requires being progressive, and holds no authority over the uniform. Well, even journalism demands having a broader sense of perspectives and thoughts, and the journo should have known this better.
