approved earlier this year after a sustained online campaign a new role not only helps muslim women players but also members of the sikh and orthodox jewish communities well a campaign to get the ban overturned was spearheaded by simran saying he's the senior religion fellow for the sikh coalition saying says the old rules resulted in young members of the community missing out on the chance to play basketball there were young men of this faith who were participating in international basketball on the national team for india who were actually us to sit out or to remove their turbans and so this has a direct impact on those who participate in international competition but it also has a direct impact on our children right who see these messages being sent that they don't have a right to play as much as anybody else and this discourages them from participating in sports and so this rule change we hope will actually help the next generation

the capital. on saturday we see you know hardening about issues we've seen a hardening of language but we've seen no softening of emotions this whole campaign is now being shrouded in acrimony and hostility it's become a war of words the accusations are flying between both sides so it's going to be very difficult whatever happens on sunday's vote to see what will happen in the long term to heal the wounds that's been created and i should say further wounds because wounds have been existing for a long time people in madrid i think a realizing how serious the situation has become many didn't actually believe it would get to this stage and on saturday we saw a big demonstration five thousand people turned out we were told by the organizers to show their support for cats only being part of spain they also are very angry about the position of the castle and government they want the castle and government to be held accountable and sent to jail and therefore they are very supportive of
the measures that the spanish government is taking of course the catacombs all say that the spanish government is being or thought tarion islamist government is saying that the castle and government is being undemocratic so whatever side you're on you will take whatever you can from what they're saying but the question is what will happen after the referendum how will we get over the animosity and hostility created in this campaign many countries will be watching to see what happens in the referendum because there are repercussions not only for spain but for them to countries like belgium france and italy so this holds very important issues for countries in europe not just spain but the spanish government is doing everything possible to stop that vote from going ahead it may be scare tactics it may be designed to make the people who are basically in the middle not go out and vote but we can only wait and see. and these are live pictures that you see now of a school that is one of those polling places where you can see people already
