If we believe Sports Council, Tajamul to get State Award

LocalIf we believe Sports Council, Tajamul to get State Award

If Jammu and Kashmir State Sports Council (JKSSC) is to be believed the top sports governing body of the State, is likely to recommend the name of 7-year old World Kick Boxing champion Tajam-ul-Islam for State Award 2017.

If the Sports Council recommends her name for the State Award it would be irony as their too many top stars who are yet to be honored. Moreover , being unofficial, un-recognized event that too in lowest age category doesn’t qualify it for the such an award.

Instead of encouraging the talented kid towards right path in the sports all the stakeholders, Council, Sports Ministry, home Ministry, Army and other establishment busy in earning mileage out of her feat. They may give her State Award and then forget, leaving her  to fetch her path for greater success alone. instead of fake, lame praises this kid needs right guidance and for that a dedicated, sincere sports persons should come forward.tajamul-islam

Tajam-ul-Islam last week won gold medal for India in the World Kick Boxing Championship of Under-8 category in Italy’s Andria. She defeated her rival from the US to become the world champion in the kick boxing championship. She is first such player to achieve the feat from Kashmir.

In 2015, Islam won the national recognition after bagging the gold medal in sub-junior category National Kickboxing Championship in New Delhi.

A resident of Tarkpora village in Bandiora district, 65 km from Srinagar, Tajamul is a student of the Army Goodwill School. Islam’s brother and two sisters also practice kickboxing.

While appreciating the talent, Jammu and Kashmir Stated Sports Council is likely to recommend Islam’s name to the Government of Jammu and Kashmir for State Award.

 Her achievement at the national level got her an entry to the World Championships, which was held at Andria in Italy in November.
Secretary Council who is yet unaware about the major sports disciplines in state should first enquire about the event in which she took part and then also try to understand what it means. He will come to know whether the event even exists on global level or not. he will also come to know that this kid was following Wushu sports before being brainwashed to take Kickboxing by certain individuals. Wushu is recognized at global level while Kick Boxing isn’t. If rules are to be followed then she may not be eligible for the Award.
