Deaf wrestler punished

newspaper story, as abbreviated

‘Goonga Pehelwan’ Virender Singh axed, wrestlers revolt

Singh has been punished for speaking out against the alleged
“irregularities” committed by the All India Sports Council of the Deaf

NEW DELHI: Legendary deaf and mute wrestler Virender Singh, famously known
as “Goonga Pehelwan’, has been punished for speaking out against the
alleged irregularities committed by the national federation – All
India Sports Council of the Deaf (AISCD).

The celebrated grappler has been dropped from the World Deaf Senior
Greco-Roman & Freestyle wrestling championship to be held in Vladimir,
Russia from June 11-19, leaving his supporters and the wrestling community
stunned.

In solidarity, other participating wrestlers have revolted against the
federation and has threatened to boycott the Worlds. Nine of the
participating wrestlers have written to the SAI that none of them will go
to the Worlds if Virender’s suspension wasn’t revoked and his name

Virender may not be a household name, but the Arjuna awardee is revered in
the same breath as two-time Olympics medallist Sushil Kumar. Virender has
seven international medals – including three gold from the Deaflympics
(Olympic Games for deaf athletes) and one gold from the Deaf Worlds.

In the latest case, Virender hasn’t been selected for the Worlds after
he alleged that the federation has not paid him and other participating
athletes their pocket allowance due for the 2017 Samsun Deaflympics.

As a result of his tirade, he was show-caused and later suspended by the
federation in March this year. Recently, the sports ministry wrote to the
AISCD to revoke Virender’s suspension immediately, but the

federation’s interpreter and project officer, Ketan Shah, is insisting
that Virender should first ‘apologise’ to the AISCD for making false
allegations.

random deafsports thoughts

re the above story about a top-notch deaf wrestler being
punished in India, it is nothing new.

During the nineties, India had Rageev Bagga, a deaf
badminton player who was of national and Olympic
levels. Bagga was outspoken and the India authorities
didn’t like it and punished him by leaving him off
the Olympics roster.

Fed up with India, he emigrated to Great Britain.
