Footballer coach disowns interview
SRINAGAR, Aug 5: A female football coach has disowned an interview, carried by a daily newspaper published from New Delhi in its edition of August 5, 2017.

The female coach, also used to train youngsters on national level. She accused the national news daily of tarnishing her image by publishing a ‘concocted’ story in its sports edition which according to her has ‘lowered’ her ‘repute’ in the society.

Qudsiya Altaf, a girl in her mid-twenties alleged that the newspaper has ‘fraudulently’ published her interview in its August 5 sports edition which she claimed is concocted and against the very ethics of journalism.

Pertinent to mention that the newspaper in its today’s sports edition has claimed that Qudsiya has identified 200 stone pelters and decided to coach them in football game on local playgrounds.

The report also reads “Being a girl, Qudsiya knows the perils of breaking the glass ceiling. But she is ready to take on the challenges. She shrugs off comments from orthodox Muslims over Hijab or her T-shirt and arm bands”

Qudsiya while talking to this correspondent, she said that the report is aimed at maligning her image in the society and that she has decided to file a defamation suit in the court against what she termed publishing concocted report without her knowledge.

“I am Insha Allah a proud Muslimah and well aware about the tenants of Islam. I have been fraudulently quoted. The report published in Times of India is concocted as I have not given any interview to it or met any of its reporters,” said Qudsiya.

She said that whatsoever has been published in newspaper is far from truth as she cannot even think to talk against Islam and Kashmir in her wildest dreams.

“It has also written that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has selected me as football coach for the under-14 and under-17 girls and boys teams. This is height of nonsense, even worthy CM has not been spared in the story,” she said.

She claimed that she was one among 200 selected coaches appointed on contractual basis by the state government “give me a single proof that CM has decided to pay rupees 5000 monthly to me for preparing young footballers”.

“I have now decided to move to the court in case the newspaper does not issue a rebuttal for publishing groundless report and tender an unconditional apology for tarnishing my image,” added she.
