I hail madam Sowmya. You have really won the medal without playing. You are a brave daughter of our country. I think our leaders should learn from her openness.

Chess star Soumya Swaminathan, i really appreciate your bold step. Everyone, should respect their own religion, their own conscience.

But beware, you may face crtics from so called seudo secularists hiding in a civilised society of our country.

The regressive hijab or the headscarf has no place in a civilized society like the trishul or kirpan which should be banned.

No one enforces others to carry Trishul or Kirpan btw. In professional or sports set-up no one carries a trishul or a kirpan. please compare apple to apple.

Mr Inzzy,
The hijab or the headscarf or the kirpan is not regressive.
Formulating a rule forcing everyone to adhere to a set of homogenised rules are regressive
There is nothing wrong in a head gear, only the forcefullness of culture is wrong
