BHU: Students burns VC'S effigy for organising Iftar party, accuses him of creating anti-Hindu initiative

Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh):

An agitated group of students from Banaras Hindu University (BHU) objected against the Iftar party organised by the varsity’s Vice-Chancellor. The group of students burnt the effigy of the VC outside his residence on Wednesday night after he organised an Iftar party on campus.

“VC is trying to impose a new tradition. This has never happened before in the university. He is trying to politicise the entire situation,” said a university student, Shubham.

Shubham further claimed that he has been in the university for past five years and no such party was organised earlier. He alleged the VC of indulging in the appeasement politics. 

“The VC held a press conference to announce this and said that the university is holding an Iftar party for the last many years whereas this is the first time any such event was held here. We strongly condemn this decision,” added Shubham.

The students’ batch raised slogans against the VC’s residence on the campus. They alleged that the decision of organising Iftar Party is against the culture of the university.

Meanwhile, another students accused the VC to polarise women as he chose Mahila Mahavidyalaya to organise the event. 

“The VC has no time to listen to the problems of students but he has time for Iftar party. The earlier VC GC Tripathi used to provide ‘Phalahar (fruits)’ during the Navaratri fasts. The new VC not only discouraged that practice but he’s now trying to impose this new tradition. This is an anti-Hindu initiative, and we condemn this. If the VC needs to have Iftar, he can go to AMU or Jamia, he’s not wanted right here,” he added.
