Anwar Hasan, a fitness trainer expresses happiness on seeing health conscious Muslim women moving ahead in life.

"In Islam women do wear veils. It is nice to see women moving ahead in our religion," said Anwar Hasan, a health trainer.

A Muslim cleric, Mulana S. Hasan Raza Zaidi, also supports women going to gyms to keep themselves fit and healthy provided they go in 'burkha'.

"Nobody should have any objection to it. Islam doesn't oppose it, if women are going to gyms wearing a veil. Islam allows things that are done to keep oneself fit and healthy," said Zaidi,

According to Islamic faith, a veil and an abaya must be worn by a Muslim woman to cover her body.
