Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei lauded Iran’s female athletes for respecting the Islamic code of dressing (Hijab) in sports arenas.

“The presence of sports women and girls who respect Hijab in international arenas is an extraordinary, highly important and valuable action,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with Iranian athletes in Tehran on Monday.

The leader further lamented the growing number of threats posed to Muslim women in Europe, and said “Under such conditions, when a Muslim Iranian woman who is wearing Hijab becomes a champion and makes everyone to bow to her, a great thing has been done,” he added.

“All people should appreciate the sportswomen who show up in international sports arenas with Hijab, grace and poise,” Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
