Looking at the controversy generated by its decision, Indian Olympic Association (IOA) sent out a statement both justifying their decision and stating that they were more than willing to include sporting personalities like PT Usha and Anju Boby George for promoting Olympics in India. Salman did not comment on the controversy.
