The ABVP disrupted a seminar being organised in Ramjas College by the English Department and when students protested the following day, the ABVP goons attacked the students and teachers injuring several of them. Even the media personnel were not spared.
The Delhi Police played the shameful role of facilitator for the ABVP goons, and stood by while the protesters were being stoned by them. Students and teachers including from the Delhi University Teachers Association and the Academic Council who were marching to the local police thana to protest were attacked by the Delhi Police.
This is another shameful example of the violent intolerance backed by the State machinery of the RSS-BJP combine and its various wings against all forms of democratic protest, particularly in the universities, said a student of Ramjas College.
Earlier, Ramjas College of Delhi University today called off a seminar in their campus after members of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) turned violent against the participation of JNU student Umar Khalid. Umar Khalid was supposed to speak at a seminar organized by the English Department of Ramjas College, at an event titled ‘Cultures of Protest’. Khalid was invited to speak on ‘The War in Adivasi Areas’.
