    She is right. No one has the right to force her. She is going there for a game. But at the same time I have seen muslims entering the Gurdwara with friends and covering their head with their Handkerchief not out of force but out of respect of their culture. There are both ways to seeing it. Being an Indian she could have managed such a culture. No one diverse than Indians by birth. But its her call. Though she is not wrong .

    A real player has all the focus on a game and not on what they are going to wear, this one just trying to run away from the situation... I know of people who have faced thousand times more hardships to make it to a game and compete, what a waste of opportunity....
