A Lahore-based reporter is receiving criticism for asking a bizarre question during a media interaction with Pakistan Women Football Team. The interaction was held in Lahore. The video was shared by Sports journalist Muneeb Farrukh.

The reporter asked the panel why they could not play in leggings instead of shorts.

Adeel Rizki, the head coach of the Pakistani women’s football team while responding to the question said that one should think progressively when it comes to sports. He added that the issue of uniforms is not in his control.


The reporter is facing backlash for moral policing female athletes and questioning their choice of dressing.
