OCA raises letter to Rathore, raised Kosovo issue
The Asian Olympic Council (OCA) on Thursday said that due to the Kosovo boxer duo, Sadiqu, with the participation in the ongoing AIBA Women’s World Championship, India could lose the chance of hosting big events such as the Olympics, Asian Games in the future. If India does not recognize Kosovo, then he refused to grant Visa to Sadiq.
In a letter written to the Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Indian Olympic Association (IOA) President Narinder Singh Batra, OCA President Sheikh Ahmed Al Fahad Al-Sabah clarified that the effect of not giving Visa to Sadiku can be seen further.
OCA wrote in his letter, “This incident has caused doubts about the hosting of India’s major international sports events and other major tournaments such as the Olympics and Asian Games.”
He gave an example of how Spain did not recognize Kosovo but despite this, allowed its players to participate in the sporting event in that country. He reminded Rathore and Batra of the rules of the Olympic Declaration.
He wrote, “You are aware of the Olympic charter and the OCA constitution, it is the responsibility of the organizing committee to provide all eligible athletes in the big championship without discrimination.
