Heavy security deployment in Jamia Millia Islamia; do you know the reason?
A few hours before an Iftar party at Jamia, heavy security force has been deployed on the campus. The deployment has been done following students group calling for a protest.
Student leader Meeran Haider issued a release claiming that students of JMI strongly oppose the University administration decision to provide University space to Muslim Rashtriya Manch (a unit of RSS) for organising Iftar party on 5th of June where RSS office bearer Indresh Kumar is scheduled to be the chief guest.
There is a massive anger among the students of Jamia Millia Islamia against the Vice Chancellor of JMI who is also supposed to share space with Indresh Kumar.
“We, the students of JMI along with the University Alumni are calling a protest in form of students supported iftar program. We will organise this iftaar program outside the sports complex as a sign of our ptotest and will also show black flag to Indresh Kumar and MRM Volunteers. Hundreds of students and Alumni are supposed to gather at our protest site at 6pm on 5th July.
Regard, Meeran Haider and Imran Chaudhary.
A protest was taken out by Campus Front students yesterday.
Jamia fan local leader Sarwar Khan is also to participate in the protest.
