College denies examination form to star cricketer
Mudasir Appeals Sports Minister For Intervention
Srinagar, Dec 26: In what could set an example of discouragement for the sportsmen of the valley ,Government Physical Education College Ganderbal authorities has denied examination form to the star cricketer who was on Ranji trophy duty, citing shortage of attendance.
The Government Physical Education College Ganderbal management has denied examination form to the cricketer Mudasir Ahmad for being in shortage list of college attendance. Mudasir is better known in State as the bowler who in 2008 became first State cricketer to find place in any Indian Premiere League side when he was hired by Kings-XI Punjab. Mudasir was recently part of JK Ranji trophy team that won two matches in its Ranji trophy campaign. As Mudasir was outside valley along with State cricket team he was not able to attend regular class in the college where he is pursuing Bachelor Degree in Physical Education (BPed).
Mudasir was not included for the last two matches of Ranji trophy by the selectors and had to return home. As reaching back to Kashmir Mudasir went to college to complete examination formulaties which he says denied by college authority citing shortage in attendance. “The college authorities denied me examination form outright. I even showed them letter of J&K Cricket Association letter seeking relaxation for me in attendance due to my inclusion in Ranji team. But college authority did not listened to me,” Mudasir said.
“I was representing State and was not on a holiday but still College authorities are hell bent upon to ruin my career. As all my efforts failed I even tried to involve Kashmir University cricket coach to plead my case but college authorities did not listened to him as well,” he said.
Mudasir said if the attitude and atmosphere towards players in the State remains such that then future of Sports in State looks bleak,” If this is happening with me than what a local player whom no one knows should expect. Players are being given special relaxation in attendance and don’t know what rules my college is following,” he said.
“I have now pinned all my hopes on Sports Minister RS Chib. He is the person who can save my career and I appeal him to intervene in the matter,” he added.
When contacted Principal Government Physical Education College Ganderbal, Dr Hartej said, “It is not about denying him examination form or allowing him sit in examinations. We can allow him to sit in examination only when he would have submitted examination form for which last date was two months back. Examination dates are being issued by University and not by college”.
“He has neither given internal examinations nor external. For intern al we can give him relaxation on our own but for external it is University which has to see whether they allow him to sit in spec ail examinations or not. Apart from that he was on Ranji trophy team for couple of weeks but he has not attended college throughout the academic year,” he added.
Meanwhile it is only the case of Mudasir who face problems in striking balance between study and playing career.
“It has been happening with number of players who go national participations and on return had to face difficulties at their respective college, schools and University departments. Till he clear cut policy in granting relaxations to the players would not be made these type things will happen,” said J&K Sports Development Association Organizing Secretary Reyaz Wani.
