Another gift from Konrad Marshall
Bachar Houli entered the AFL 14 years ago as its first orthodox Muslim. With the quiet strength of his faith and the beauty of his play, he’s changed the way the game understands itself.www.theage.com.au
A remarkable read about a remarkable man. Good on you Konrad Marshall.
How fortunate are RFC (the Club and its followers) and the broader AFL community to have Bachar Houli in its fold!
What a wonderful human being is Bachar and an example to others about integrity and humility, and to living simply and to one's beliefs.
The story about his interactions with the Collingwood cheer squad was unknown to me. It's a huge lesson on dealing with fear of the unknown.
I found the article very moving indeed.
Go Bachar. Your legacy at Richmond will be an enduring one for sure.
PS Will be very much looking forward to reading Waleed Aly's biography on Bachar when it is released shortly.
