Sochi 2014 and the Oppression of Muslims

Sochi 2014 and the Oppression of Muslims

On Friday 7th February 2014 the 22nd winter Olympics commenced in Sochi, Russia. Controversy began well before the games started. The west has been in overdrive ever since Russia won the bid to host the Olympics. Weather it is British politicians or US human rights groups they are all highlighting one issue to the exclusion of all other issues- "gay rights."

On the day of the opening ceremony Google changed its doodle on its home page in support of gay rights, the UK's Independent and the Huffington Post also changed their logo. President Obama went further by sending openly gay athletes as a delegation to Sochi to promote this cause and in an interview with the American network NBC Obama said: "There is no doubt we wanted to make it very clear that we do not abide by discrimination in anything, including discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation."[1]
