Sex, tennis players and the Indian media

November 19, 2005

Sania Mirza recently went on record in the media saying that premarital sex is an unforgiveable sin according to Islam. There are reports saying that Islamic clerics issued a “fatwa” objecting to her wearing a short skirt.

Firstly, she’s a tennis player. People should be watching her play tennis and not the length of her skirt.

Second, don’t use religion to lend credulity to ridiculous opinions.

Third, stop hyping this up.

Its not enough that sex in India has such weird connotations (depending upon the place you come from) that its quite impossible to have a rational opinion about it. This kind of useless sensationalism only makes it harder to come to terms with.
