Ruckus on iftar continues at Banaras Hindu University. The agitating students are registering their protest in their own way. Due to which it seems that the dismissal of BHU Vice Chancellor Sudhir Jain has become a headache for the university administration. The students of BHU are in a mood to agitate continuously. On Friday evening too, a group of students reached the Vice Chancellor’s residence with Gangajal in a pot and performed purification by sprinkling Gangajal with Vedic chanting. After this, the students also shaved their heads in protest.
Earlier, the students had also expressed their anger by burning an effigy against the Vice-Chancellor’s residence. But once again on Friday night, a group of students reached the Vice-Chancellor’s residence to protest and purify with Gangajal. The students got themselves shaved while purifying with Vedic chants. During this, students also raised slogans like BHU ‘VC go back’. These students demanded that those who wrote controversial slogans on the walls of BHU, they should be identified and arrested, as well as the Vice-Chancellor should apologize for attending the Iftar party.
BHU student Shubham Tiwari said that the manner in which iftar was organized officially. The foundation of a new tradition is being laid, which they are opposing. At the same time, Ashirwad Dubey, a student who shaved his head, said that very objectionable slogans were written on the campus regarding caste and Kashmir. The security personnel of the university administration did not even notice. No arrest has been made so far in this case. Our demand is that the Vice-Chancellor should apologize immediately and the police should immediately arrest those who wrote the slogans, if this does not happen then this movement will intensify.
Students say that the tradition of iftar on government money in BHU was stopped in 2014. Why did VC Sudhir Kumar Jain resume this tradition? According to the students, anti-national and anti-Hindu slogans have been written in BHU under the protection of VC, which is unacceptable. The question of these students was whether VC Sudhir Jain wants to make BHU AMU?
Here, considering the slogans written on the wall as very objectionable, a complaint was lodged on behalf of Chief Proctor BC Kapri at the Lanka Police Station. After which, a case has been registered against an unknown in various sections in the Lanka police station. On the other hand, the university administration has been continuously giving clarification regarding Iftar. BHU PRO Chandrashekhar clarified that this is a decades-old tradition of Iftar, in which the Vice-Chancellor was involved. Which is being made a point of controversy in a vain.
