Iranian soccer stars protest gender discrimination

A few courageous Iranian soccer stars voiced public criticism of the Iranian regime’s gender discriminative policy. A coach of one of Iran’s most popular teams, Ali Karimi, and Iranian national team star Masoud Shojaei protested the 38 year old ban on women attendance of soccer matches. They described the wish to cancel the ban as the demand and dream of “millions upon millions of female fans”. Surprisingly, the current president of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, has remained silent on this matter.
