Kom could only manage bronze at the Women's World Boxing Championships in Ulan-Ude in Russian Federation, prompting Zareen to write to Indian Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju to complain about the selection of the London 2012 Olympic silver medallist.
Mary Kom became the most decorated boxer in World Boxing Championships by winning her record 8th medal.
Indian boxer Nikhat Zareen on Thursday wrote to sports minister Kiren Rijiju, requesting him to look into the issue of Boxing Federation of India (BFI). The minister has asserted support to Zarin and also requested all sports ministers not to get involved in the selection processes. The decision, effectively, shuts the door on Nikhat, who is in the same weight category as Mary Kom.
The BFI supplied some extent-essentially based selection diagram a year ago under which boxers are with out a doubt being picked on the lend a hand of their performances in various graded tournaments and the nationwide camps. I have won eight World Championship medals, including six gold. But if she is a legend, then why is she not competing in trials?
She also found support from Abhinav Bindra, India's only individual gold medal victor at the Olympics, as he re-tweeted Nikhat's tweet with the message: "While I have all the respect for Mary Kom, the fact is, an athlete's life is an offering of proof". Nikhat has questioned the selection of ace boxer Mary Kom for the Olympic Qualifiers in the 51 kg category, Nikhat's category, too, without any selection trails. "Though, Minister will comprise to collected no longer be interested by the selection of the gamers by the Sports activities Federations which could perhaps also be self ample as per OLYMPIC CHARTER", Rijiju tweeted in step with Zareen's letter.

In ladies's competitors, BFI had stated in August that exclusively the gold and silver winners on the World Championships in Russian Federation could be chosen immediately for the Olympic qualifiers in February. "To my utter dismay, the trial was cancelled, and Mary Kom was sent", said Nikhat in her statement.
"The BFI knows who can win a medal at the Olympics". I had defeated Mary Kom in the trials before 2014 Commonwealth Games. "Just fair play. And whether Mary Kom or I or any other boxer qualifies after the trial, we can at least sleep at night knowing that every one of the candidates got the best possible opportunity to make India proud at the Olympics", she added.
BFI president Ajay Singh seemed to address this lack of clarity when he suggested that the selection criteria for both men and women should be the same. "The best way I can do justice to this inspiration was to strive to be as great a boxer as her", Zareen said.
