NOT to say in PAS states its BANNED rite?
PAS banned paintball?... how about Selangor?
Archery is Sunah Rasulullah. Prophet Muhammad encourages Muslims to take up archery and horse riding because those skills (during his years) can be used in war. Since it is practised by Muhammad it is a Sunnah and means Muslims taking up archery and horse riding is actually performing a Sunnah Rasul means being rewarded the pahala for following what Muhammad S.A.W did.
There is no such thing as PAS controlled states ban paintball because paintball, just like archery makes the player skillful in shooting and can be translated into using firearm in war. If one is skillful in shooting with paint marker, then he will have no problem when shooting with real guns if "FORCED" to use one in case of war or self defence.
Islam stipulate rules in relation to sports. The most important of all is to conceal the aurat and paintball is the only sport that (force) Muslim men and women to totally cover the aurat (except maybe the hair). So there is nothing HARAM (unless the Fatwa Council says so) about playing paintball.
During the WCA 2009, Kedah a PAS controlled state had teams in D3 and D4. The same also during the My NPL.
