Hyderabad: In continuation with the solidarity of students’ protests across colleges and universities in the country, the MANUU fraternity, Hyderabad led an emergent peaceful march on the brutal atrocities and rampage conducted by masked goons of ABVP and their allies last night on the students and teachers of Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
Around two hundred teachings, non-teaching staff and students led a procession from the footsteps of Directorate of Distance Education to the main gate of the university.
Holding a variety of placards in their hands, they chanted slogans of save students and teachers – save university etc., alike. The procession started around 12 noon and ended at 1:30 afternoon. The family members of staff also joined the march in large number.
Meanwhile, Prof. Mohammad Fariyad expressed his anguish and pain on such developments taking place in universities where no one is safe.
“It is a matter of deep concern for all students and teachers, especially, for females who are not even secured in university campuses now” said Prof. Shahida while addressing the gathering.
Dr. Firoz Alam vehemently condemned the shameful act conducted on JNU students and teachers. “They are the victim of raising their voice against fee hike in that university, it is that simple” he added.
Dr. Sayyed Hammad Hashmi also expressed his feelings on the occasion. Prof. Mohd. Shahid lamented on the situations emerged in the country in recent days and the way voices of teachers and students are crushed by organized goons.
“We are raising our concern because of these public-funded universities, but, we will be losing such spaces if we allow ourselves to destroy our institutions” he concluded.
The protest dispersed with National Anthem in the last.
