India Is Being Punished By The International Olympic Committee For Rejecting Pakistani Visas

Lol, sucks to suck.

The Olympics are a pretty big deal in the Sports world and well, just the world in general.


And following conversation in India, it seems that the International Olympic Committee has something to say about the Indian sentiment with regards to Pakistan.

After India rejected the visas of two Pakistani shooters who were coming to India to participate in a tournament, the IOC has suspended all discussions with India with regards to Olympic involvement of any kind.

And it is a pretty big deal.

The IOC stated that no discussions would take place surrounding talk of hosting Olympic events in the future in India, until and unless written guarantees were issued from the Government, stating that participation of Pakistani athletes would not be excluded.

In a meeting earlier this week, the ICO further said, “This situation goes against the fundamental principles of the Olympic charter, in particular the principles of non-discrimination, as well as the IOC’s and the Olympic movement’s position, reiterated on many occasions over the past few years, that equal treatment must be guaranteed for all participating athletes and sporting delegations at international sports events, without any form of discrimination or political interference from the host country.”

They went on to say, “As a result, the IOC executive board also decided to suspend all discussions with the Indian NOC and government regarding the potential applications for hosting future sports and Olympic-related events in India, until clear written guarantees are obtained from the Indian government to ensure the entry of all participants in such events in full compliance with the rules of the Olympic charter — and to recommend that the international federations (IFs) neither award nor hold sports events in India until the above-mentioned guarantees are obtained.”

It is clear to see that the Olympic Committee is not taking light action and is actively penalizing India for its role in this issue. This is not the first time that athletics have been caught in the crosshairs of Indian and Pakistani politics.

Recently, with regards to the Asia Cup, though Pakistan was selected to host the games in 2020, India refused to participate resulting in the match being relocated to Dubai.


Before that, Pakistan was guilty of doing the same when India was chosen to host the Cup the previous year.

Clearly, the animosity of both countries has been an issue in every level of the state and sports is no less. Pakistanis have noticed the commotion in India and are not being subtle about it.

Lol, at all.

Though our relations have been severed for quite some time (pretty much 1947), the after-effects of the Pulwama attack have shown to be quite persistent in causing intense tension between Pakistan and India.

If the leaders of both nations are not able to figure out some kind of peace accord soon, the situation at hand could get a lot worse for all of us.
