Indian Shooter Heena Sidhu won the respect for refusing iran hijab code

Indian pistol shooter Heena Sidhu has won the hearts for her bold statement on Iran hijab code. She refused to wear the hijab at Asian air weapon competition in Iran. She said "hijab is not in the spirit of a Sport".

Heena Sidhu has pulled out of the Championship due to the compulsory hijab rule for all women athletes. The tournament will be held in December in Tehran.

According to dress code, "Women's clothing in the shooting range and public places is required to conform to the rules and regulations of I. R. Iran."

Soon after Henna took to Twitter on Saturday to address the issue.

"There have been reports abt me skipping the Asian air weapon competition in Iran due to their practice of making women wear hijab. (1)"

"Im not a revolutionary. But I feel dat making it mandatory for even  a sportsperson to wear hijab is not in the spirit of a Sport. (2)"

"Im proud 2 b sportsperson coz ppl from diff cultures, backgrouds, sexes, ideologies, religion can cum 2gether n compete without biases (3)"

"Sport is an exhibition of sheer Human Effort nPerformance. Our ability to dig deep for Strength, Will Power and Determination. (4)"

"This is d reason I compete n I cannot compete for anything lesser than this. But I wud also not have my personal opinion politicised (5)"

"I thank the NRAI for respecting my views n I wud also like 2wish luck 2 r team competing in Iran. Lets concentrate on competition dan hijab"

Then, people massively supported her.
