Are agitating girl students of BHU anti-national?Nowadays, we are observing that the law and order situation in UP has been deteriorating day by day. Eve- teasing in disguise of moral policing is becoming the order of the day. Everybody is well aware of the background of the saffron clad CM of the state. This CM was a law and order problem of the state before. The same man is now the in-charge of the state. The surge in the events of moral policing and cow-vigilantism is but obvious.
A few days before there was a lathi charge on the agitating girl students of BHU ( Banaras Hindu University). The girls were demanding security against sexual assault on a girl student and regular eve teasing in the campus of the university.
The VC of BHU, a RSS man, gave a new dimension to the whole incident by declaring it a work of leftist students of the university. During his various interviews on TV, he seemed to flip-flop from his statements. He initially denied of any lathi charge on the students and said that the case was not of sex assault but of eve-teasing etc. etc. He declared that the agitation was anti-national. The commissioner's report exposed the VC.
Recently, we see that the educational institutions are being targeted for imposition of a particular ideology. It started with JNU then AMU and now BHU. I strongly of the opinion that following any ideology or raising issues other than of ruling class' liking is not a anti-national act. The act of imposition of a particular ideology by any person or body or govt. is against the constitution.
