Sports giant Decathlon walks back plans to sell 'hijab for running' in France after backlash

French-based sporting goods giant Decathlon was forced to backtrack on plans to start selling a head-covering garment made for sports-loving Muslim women in France amid an avalanche of threats and boycott calls.

The retailer announced on Tuesday it would put on hold its plans to launch the veil, suitable for running and other sport activities, in France, after the plain looking garment attracted widespread controversy before it could even be put on the shelves. The company said it has been bombarded with an unprecedented number of complaints, receiving around 500 calls and emails. The outrage spilled over into physical stores, with some of its staff being threatened and insulted, it said.
