He said that he has not allowed his daughters to play ANY kind of sports. He mentioned that he’s proud to be a conservative father. He also said that he has taken the social and religious factors into consideration before taking this decision.

In his book he wrote, “Ajwa and Asmara are the youngest and love to play dress-up. They have my permission to play any sport, as long as they’re indoors. Cricket? No, not for my girls. They have permission to play all the indoor games they want, but my daughters are not going to be competing in public sporting activities.”
