Paris Olympic Games-2024: This Decision Taken On Wearing Hijab In Olympic Village

Paris: The International Olympic Committee has said that there will be no ban on wearing hijab in the Olympic Village during Paris Olympic Games-2024.

Next year the Olympic Games will be held in France and hijab is banned for the players there.

France's Sports Minister Emilie Ode-Castera has said that hijab has been banned in her country out of respect for the principles of secularism. But the International Olympic Committee has decided that the rule banning hijab will not apply to countries participating in the Paris Olympics to be held in 2024.

An International Olympic Committee spokesperson said only International Olympic Committee rules will apply to the Olympic Village. There is no restriction on wearing hijab or any religious-cultural dress here. But during sports matches, only the existing rules of the International Federation will apply.

The United Nations Human Rights Office has criticized the ban imposed on athletes wearing hijab
