نامه جمعی از ایرانیان به رئیس فدراسیون جهانی فوتبال

فیفا از ایران بخواهد تبعیض علیه زنان را کنار بگذارد


President Gianni Vicenzo Infantino,
Federation Internationale de Football Association,
FIFA-Strasse 20,
P.O. Box 8044, Zurich, Switzerland.
14 September 2019


پرزیدنت اینفانتینو عزیز،

ما امضاکنندگان زیر، استادان دانشگاه، روزنامه‌نگاران، نویسندگان،‌ شعرا، ‌پزشکان،‌ حقوق‌دانان، هنرمندان و فعالین حقوق بشر ایرانی مقیم خارج از ایران، ‌مایلیم توجه شما را به وضعیت تاسف‌انگیز زنان علاقمند به فوتبال در ایران جلب کنیم. همانطور که قطعا مطلع هستید، جمهوری اسلامی ایران تنها کشوری در جهان ‌و تنها عضو فیفا است که بر اساس سیاست‌های واپس‌گرای خود، زنان را از شرکت در مسابقات ورزشی مردان محروم می‌سازد. زنان علاقمند به فوتبال که قصد حضور در استادیوم‌ها را داشته باشند،‌ تحقیر می‌شوند، کتک می‌خورند و زندانی می‌شوند. همین هفته در یک مورد بسیار تراژیک،‌ سحر خدایاری معروف به دختر آبی - اشاره به رنگ باشگاه فوتبال مورد علاقه‌اش - خود را آتش زد و بر اثر شدت جراحات درگذشت. به او گفته شده بود که به خاطر آنکه با لباس مردانه قصد ورود به استادیوم را داشته به شش ماه زندان محکوم خواهد شد.

به اعتقاد ما این مسئولیت فیفا است که قاطعانه از جمهوری اسلامی بخواهد تا این سیاست آشکارا تبعیض‌آمیز بر علیه زنان را کنار بگذارد. بند چهارم اساسنامه فدراسیون جهانی فوتبال به صراحت می‌گوید: «تبعیض قائل‌شدن به هر شکلی علیه کشوری، فردی حقیقی یا گروهی از افراد به دلیل اصلیت نژادی،  جنسی، معلولیتی، گویشی، مذهبی، ‌سیاسی یا دلایل دیگر به شدت ممنوع می‌باشد و از طریق اخراج یا تعلیق قابل مجازات است.»

مشروط ساختن شرکت ایران در مسابقات جهانی فوتبال به برطرف کردن موانع ورود زنان به استادیوم‌ها، تنها راهی است که جمهوری اسلامی را وادار کند که این سیاست ارتجاعی را به‌دور اندازد. به ماور ما فیفا در موقعیتی قرار دارد که با تنها زبانی که جمهوری اسلامی می‌فهمد، مقامات مسئول را ناچار سازد که حق ابتدایی زنان برای تماشای مسابقات مورد علاقه‌شان را محترم شمارد.

با احترام

President Gianni Vicenzo Infantino,
Federation Internationale de Football Association,
FIFA-Strasse 20,
P.O. Box 8044, Zurich, Switzerland.

Dear President Infantino,

We the undersigned, Iranian academics, journalists, writers, poets, lawyers, physicians, artists, and human rights activists living outside Iran would like to draw your attention to the atrocious situation of female football fans in Iran. As you are surely aware, the Islamic Republic of Iran is the only country in the world, and the only FIFA member that based on its obscurantist policies does not allow women in the male-sporting events. Female football fans are humiliated, beaten, and jailed for wanting to watch soccer games. Just this week, in a most tragic case, a young female football fan, Sahar Khodayari, dubbed Blue Girl—a reference to her favourite football team—self-immolated and died as a result of her severe injuries. She had been told that she would be sentenced to six months in prison for disguising as a man to enter the football stadium. 

We believe that it is FIFA’s responsibility to seriously demand that the Islamic Republic stop this blatant discriminatory policy against women. Article 4 of the FIFA Statutes clearly states that “Discrimination of any kind against a country, private person or group of people on account of race, skin colour, ethnic, national or social origin, gender, disability, language, religion, political opinion or any other opinion, wealth, birth or any other status, sexual orientation or any other reason is strictly prohibited and punishable by suspension or expulsion.” 

Conditioning Iran’s participation in international football tournaments, on its lifting of the ban on women’s entry into football stadiums, would be the sure way to force the Islamic government to end this reactionary policy. We strongly believe that FIFA is in a position to use the only language that the Islamic government understand and force the authorities to respect the basic rights of women to watch their favourite games where men do. 

Sincerely,
