Mumbai: In the wake of the recent suicide of a Dalit student at the University of Hyderabad, SIO Mumbai along with AISA and various other organizations from TISS, TIFR, IIT-B and MU took to the streets at the Mumbai University campus.

Fighting for justice  these students seated at the main entry road were busy singing to a list of patriotic songs when suddenly the so far silent protest took an ugly turn. Representatives of ABVP put up their flags and banners at the protest sight angering the protesters. What followed was a tussle between ABVP members and the 100+ protesters.

Police was prompt in taking action but the already angry protesters broke open the University’s doors and started marching towards the VC office. Sorrounded by more than 10 patrolling cars and a couple of police Vans apart from the extensive University police presence the protesters chanted slogans and marched to the office.

After about an hour of slogan shouting and throwing verbal abuses alongside threatening the administration a senior aide of the VC came out for discussion. Not satisfied the protesters propounded their quest to meet the VC. It is when they were able to table their demands with him.

A brief discussion with the VC brought forward the demands of the protesters. But it appeared that the VC did not help them either. At this point the protesters decided to march away disappointed and dejected, with no further plans yet.

SIO believes that the MHRD should take some concrete steps towards marginalization of students and radicalization of educational institutions across India. It’s our earnest desire to see the social fabric of India to be acknowledged and spread through the campuses of india. We would like these campuses to became a safe haven for healthy discussions and a cradle for the development of the society at large. And such condemnable events bring hurdles to these aspirations of ours.
