Now Harbhajan, who retired from international cricket on December 24, 2021, has come out in support of Malika. He tweeted saying: “First, why is there no policy for the hearing impaired? Being deaf does not take away talent. Second, you should get what was promised for your achievement. I urge the sports minister of Punjab and India to deal with this matter. @PargatSOfficial @ianuragthakur “

Since someone of Bhajji’s stature has joined, it will be interesting to see if the higher authorities of the Punjab government take swift action in the coming days to meet Malika’s needs.

Malika has had a stellar career in which the young woman has secured the national championship up to seven times and has also come back with six medals at the Asian and world championships. Therefore, the misguided treatment of such a star athlete remains alarming.
