NEW DELHI: The Banaras Hindu University (BHU) condemned students’ protest against a Roza Iftar organized at Women’s College and participation of the vice-chancellor Professor Sudhir Jain in the event on April 27, 2022. “Many times in the past, various Vice Chancellors have had iftar sitting with the students in this program. The attempt to spoil the academic and harmonious environment of the University in this regard is condemnable,” said BHU in a tweet. Some BHU students staged a protest against the vice-chancellor’s participation in the Iftar party and burnt his effigy on Wednesday evening as per various media reports.
पूर्व में कई बार विभिन्न कुलपतिगण ने इस कार्यक्रम में विद्यार्थियों के साथ बैठकर इफ्तार की है। इस संबंध में विश्वविद्यालय का शैक्षणिक व सद्भावपूर्ण वातावरण बिगाड़ने की कोशिश निंदनीय है। @VCofficeBHU @EduMinOfIndia— BHU Official (@bhupro) April 28, 2022
The University took to its Twitter to share some old pictures of Iftar event celebrated in the university in the past years and said that vice-chancellors have been attending the event for decades.
“Photos of the Vice Chancellors attending the Roza Iftar held earlier. The organization of fasting iftar was started in the university decades ago. Photos: 2010, 2013 and 2014, when the then Vice-Chancellors attended the Iftar,” BHU tweeted.
