<p>“I will tell you about the decision according to the federation that would be formed,” Malik said.</p>
<p>Malik went on to say that the wrestlers’ protest is focused on one person, the now-deposed WFI chairman Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, who is being prosecuted for alleged sexual harassment, rather than the government.</p>
<p>By suspending the country’s leading sports regulatory organization and its officials, the Union Sports Ministry has made a big move. Following the announcement by recently elected WFI chairman Sanjay Singh that U-15 and U-20 nations will be held toward the end of the year, the administration described the move as “hurried”. The ministry also said that the announcement was made in violation of the WFI’s constitution and that the countries’ possible participation was not notified.</p>
<p>Malik praised the ruling but demanded further details about the government’s justification.</p>
<p>“I haven’t yet seen anything written down. I’m not sure whether Sanjay Singh is the only one suspended or if everyone has been suspended. It wasn’t the government we were fighting. Though I have declared my retirement, I believe that the next generation of wrestlers should be given justice. Our struggle is for women wrestlers,” she said.</p>
