A sports law competition has sparked outrage after a panel of judges suggested a ‘soft’ sport that allows participants to “shoot from a distance” should be considered a ‘hard’ sport.
The judges at the World Sports Congress in India’s capital, New Delhi, said that if a sport is soft it can be played at any time.
The judges also said it is acceptable for “young kids to use guns and knife in competitions”.
The committee’s recommendation, released by the Supreme Court in December last year, was opposed by a number of Indian sportsmen and women who said it would be unwise for them to participate in such a dangerous sport.
“If it is soft, it will be easier to play.
If it is hard, it is easy for the young kids to abuse them.
It is easy to be a murderer,” said Ranjeet Singh, a lawyer and founder of the Sports Law Association of India (SLA).
He said the judges’ recommendation would “create a very dangerous situation in Indian sports”.
“I feel very strongly that the judges have a different opinion,” said Singh.
“It’s a soft sport.
It has a certain softness, it has a lot of softness.
It should be a soft competition.
But the judges will come out with a recommendation that says it is dangerous.”
You have a lot more responsibility if you are shooting a pistol and if you go to the range you will have to be very cautious and very cautious.
If you have a knife and you come out, you have to make sure you are not going to hurt anybody.
“The Supreme Court’s judgement in the case of Taseer v State of Punjab, also known as the case about the police killing of a teenage boy, was in response to a petition filed by the National Sports Federation of India, which represents the top governing body of Indian football.
The petitioners argued that a soft and nonviolent sport was not a form of sport.
In its decision, the court said the government had failed to ensure “the safety of youth in sporting activities”.”
The court’s judgement came on the same day that another court in Punjab issued a stay on the trial of the 17-year-old youth accused of murdering his uncle, who was accused of being involved in a gangland killing in Punjab in 2003.”
In such a situation, it would not be proper to prohibit the use of knives, guns and guns to fight and which can be used for self-defence or for any other purpose.”

The Supreme Judicial Court had earlier ruled that the defence of a minor is irrelevant in a case of murder.
A petition filed with the Supreme court by a father and son argued that the judge was prejudicing the case and that the case should be transferred to a lower court.
“A soft sport should not be subject to a criminal trial.
It cannot be called a hard sport.
That’s a problem.
It shouldn’t be a sports law case,” said Javed Bibi, a father of two from Pune, India’s second-biggest city.”
I want to send a message to all the Indian sports people.
It’s dangerous to have a soft court in this country.
You have to know your rights.”
