Students marched on the college premises against Vice-Chancellor Prof. Sudhir Jain, who organised the Iftar party and burnt his effigy. The Iftar party was attended by Muslim teachers and students of the women’s college. Students said a discussion on Roza and Ramzan took place that was moderated by Dr Mohammad Afzal Hussain.

1. University students said, ‘There was no such event as Iftar at BHU for a long time. Suddenly, the Vice-Chancellor turned Banaras Hindu University into Jamia Millia Osmania University (University of Muslims). This is an attempt to appease the Muslims’.

2. Anti-Hindu graffiti surfaced on the walls of the university premises after the Iftar party. The students also provided some photographs of the graffiti where anti-Hindu slogans like ‘Kashmir to bas jhanki hai, poora Bharat baaki hai’ and ‘Brahman Teri kabr khudegi BHU ki dharti par’ were written. (What did the Vice-Chancellor achieve by organising Iftar at the University ? This shows that the anti-Hindu and anti-national mentality of religious fanatics is as it is ! – Editor)

Editorial viewpoints

  • The Aligarh Muslim University was set up to spread fundamentalism among Muslim students, while the Banaras Hindu University was set up to inculcate patriotism and culture in future generations. The word ‘Hindu’ from Banaras Hindu University is its true identity. If the Vice-Chancellor himself is trying to erase that, then it is infuriating !
  • Under the guise of secularism, a ‘Hindu’ University in India organises Iftar; but is Aarti or Pooja organised at Muslim educational institutions or colleges ? Suicidal secularism among Hindus will one day lead them to destruction !
