At St Stephens College which is Hindu College’s neighbour the four decade old tradition of taking the ANGA (Alnutt North Gentlemen‚Äôs Association) oath was cancelled after objection from students and various women groups.

Since the 70’s, college students at St Stephens College assemble on Valentine’s Day and say an oath to “Constitute ANGA into a paramount egalitarian fellowship and to secure to all its members, justice — social, sexual and sentimental; liberty — to philander exclusively with men; equality — of status and opportunity; and to promote among them all misogyny”.

The oath took place on the college campus on evening amid protests.It has been told by the students that the oath text had been cleared of “misogynistic words and phrases”.
