    Considering that the government is ignoring their own people's plea to capture and save kidnapped school girls, BWF should make a stand of ban them from participation all together.

    I didn't know that the BWF had a political agenda to fulfil. I hope they keep their eyes on their real goals and leave politics and justice systems to the relevant authorities.

    Although it's understandable that anxious parents want the Nigerian government to show a solid plan how to rescue the abducted girls, you would not tell your enemy in public how you are going to capture them, would you? Especially in this case, the Nigerian government forces have reportedly been infiltrated by Boko Haram sympathesizers/fighters. There's a difference between doing nothing and being incapable of doing something. Which one is true or whether both are true for the Nigerian government, only they themselves know the answer. If only the end result matters and a ban by the BWF would make a difference, then the BWF should perhaps also ban Malaysia given that the still missing lives of a few hundred are not yet to be found anywhere in the ocean. Last but not least, this is perhaps the thing least likely to make an impact on the Nigerian government, if not the BWF itself wants to gain some unusual publicity.

    Poor Nigerians... I bet they will be late again and booted out immediately like last time.

    hmm... you are comparing a plane accident vs. crime against humanity. The Government obviously is not doing the best they could. BWF is entrusted by Olympic committee as the world governing body of badminton.
