Is she allowed to wear the scarf on her head when competing? Can a Jew wear a Kippah? Can a nun wear her habit? Can a priest wear his neck choker?

I am confused.

I am confused by this article, why have they took a picture of the afghan contestent? why have they not taken another picture of the Uzbekistan contestant? all things being fair, they should have took a picture of both of them. unless there is a hiden agender.

She should be offered asylum somewhere. I can't imagine the fundamentalist terrorists who are now in charge in Afghanistan will praise her competing in the Olympics.

Did Uzbekistan fall to the Tailban?

Article is about an Afghan athlete that nearly did not make to Tokyo due to the ongoing problems in her home country, hence her photo.

Not really confusing with a tiny bit of effort. Try not to read too much into it or you will get confused again.
