He made this remark in the wake of protest held against the organization of two-day seminar on “Shri Ram Janma Bhoomi Temple: Emerging Scenario” sponsored by the faculty of Arts of Delhi University by Arundhati Vashishtha Anusandhan Peeth (AVAP) which is a research organization started by Ashok Singhal, former VHP leader.
The students’ wing of Congress party, National Students Union of India (NSUI), All India Students’ Association (AISA) and the Krantikari Yuva Sangathan (KYS) organized their protest outside the venue of the seminar. They alleged that such a seminar would “communalise” the campus and promote “saffron agenda”.
