Shiva Amini is a popular Iranian female football player, who won also many medals in international tournaments. Few weeks ago she was in a private trip in Europe – in Italy and Switzerland. Here, she played soccer with friends, in unofficial games. Feeling far and free from the Iranian Islamic dress code constrictions, Shiva decided to play with men, without wearing the veil. After the games, she posted videos of her experience on her Instagram account.

Unfortunately, also the representatives of the Iranian football federation saw her videos and pictures: immediately they decided to ban Shiva Amin from the Iranian national women team. As it is possible to see (and listen) in a video published by the Facebook page My Stealthy Freedom, Shiva protested against the decision, underlining that she was in Europe for private reasons, not playing for the Islamic Republic. The Iranian officials, answered that she is always a representative of the country, and she must behave always in an “Islamic way”. One of the representative of the national Football Federation of Iran, attacked also Shiva for her decision to visit Europe, “a place which is against our culture”.
