‘Pervert At Work?’

“A 12-year-old girl was forced to withdraw from a chess tournament in Malaysia after her dress was considered “seductive”, her coach has claimed.

“Malaysian chess player Kaushal Khandar alleged that his student had been “extremely embarrassed” and “disturbed” by the actions of the {Muslim} ‘National Scholastic Chess Championship 2017’ director and chief arbiter, the ‘Star Online’ reported.

“He claimed that the tournament director had made a remark on the girl’s knee-length dress to the chief arbiter, who had stopped her competition in the middle of Round 2 and informed the student that her dress was improper and violated the dress code of the tournament, the report said.

“It was later informed (by chief arbiter) to my student and her mother, that the tournament director deemed my student’s dress to be “seductive” and a “temptation”, Kaushal said in a statement on his ‘Facebook’ page.

“This situation led to the inevitable decision of withdrawing from the tournament”, he said.

“The director told the girl and her mother that they needed to go to the mall and by her a pair of trousers but by that time it was already 10 PM, and the matches the next day restarted at 9 AM.

“As they were not able to get a replacement outfit in time the girl, who was a regional champion in Kuala Lumpur, had to pull out of the competition.

“When contacted, the tournament director said an investigation is underway. However, he declined to comment further, the report said.

“My daughter was shocked after her game was interrupted by the chief arbiter”, said Chin Wai Lings, the girl’s mother.

“Chin said the dress code for the tournament is based on the World Chess Federation (FIDE) Laws of Chess requiring participants to have a “dignified appearance”, but no illustrative dress code guidelines were given out to participants before the tournament.”

“It was later informed (by Chief Arbiter) to my student and her mother, that the Tournament Director deemed my student’s dress to be ‘seductive’ and a ‘temptation from a certain angle far, far away’.

“We found this statement completely out of line!” Kaushal’s post read…

“Kaushal said the chief arbiter had told the girl and the mother to buy long slacks.

“This situation had led to the inevitable decision of withdrawal from the tournament all together. We are absolutely disgusted by the treatment of Tournament Director to a 12-year-old girl and her mother”, Kaushal added.

“The coach, who claimed he had been participating actively in the field for 20 years, also demanded a public apology from the tournament director, failing which he would pursue legal action.

“We demand a public apology. In the event, we do not receive a public apology in the next 5 days, we shall have no choice but to resort to legal proceedings”, Kaushal stressed.

“When contacted by ‘Malay Mail Online’, the tournament director said he would be lodging a police report on the matter soon and did not want to issue any statement for the time being.

“A ‘Malaysian Chess Federation’ spokesman also told ‘Malay Mail Online’ that the tournament secretariat is currently investigating the incident.

“He however claimed the official complaint lodged by the parent varies from what was alleged by Kaushal in his ‘Facebook’ posting.

“The tournament secretariat is currently investigating the complaint. The claim posted is different from the official complaint. We will take action once the report comes out”, the spokesman told ‘Malay Mail Online’ when contacted today.

“The MCF spokesman, however, said the contents of the complaint could not be divulged as it might infringe on any legal proceedings…

“The chess tournament was held in Putrajaya from April 14 to 16.”

COMMENT: “Wahhabi religion in full force. Multiracial, multireligion, plural and moderate Malaysia will be a thing of the past. Malaysia WILL BE another Saudi Arabia, where no non Muslim places of worship are allowed to exist & all aspects of life of every single citizen will be regulated under the scope of the twisted Wahhabi religion. We are losing our liberty, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, because the UMNO government has declared war on ‘liberalism’. Everything that was unacceptable and illogical has become acceptable. All because UMNO is allowing all these to happen. It will get worse. This is the grim reality.”
