Agra: Naba Naseem, an 18-year-old girl rode to victory in the student union polls in Aligarh Muslim University’s (AMU) Women’s college.
The girls celebrated their victory by taking a ride on Royal Enfiled bike in the campus premises.
She won the student union polls by promising “seven days” outing for girl students. Currently, girls are allowed to go for outing only on Sunday’s between 10 am to 5 pm.
A video of Girls celebrating their victory on Royal Enfield bike has been going viral on Social media.
Naseem said that “Girl hostel residents are not allowed to go out except on Sundays, while there are no such restrictions on boys.”
She also added that this practice is unreasonable.
“All of us are above 18 years old and responsible enough. I am not asking for permission to stay out, all I am asking for is an outing that is between working hours (9 am to 5 pm) every day. Is that too much to ask?” Naseem said.
Naseem also said that, going outside the college premises was a matter of “fundamental right”.
“The fact is that there are no restrictions on boys while girls are not allowed to step outside the (campus) premises. It means that we are treated like children. This is incorrect. Why should we be deprived of such small pleasures?” Naseem said.
