“I never made any comments against Lord Krishna. But I have been getting threats on social media and over phone. They have threatened that they will blacken my face and I should apologise.” he said.

The controversy started after Rajeev Kunwar participated in a talk on ‘Patriarchy and Women Resistance in India: A historical enquiry’ organised by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithiya Study Circle in the college.

A video of the same talk was shared on social media by a student following which another student posted in the comments thread, “This is the same professor who teaches students Lord Krishna is a fictitious character. This professor should be boycotted.”

A student, who was supporting the professor, wrote about Lord Krishna “harassing women”.The professor said he had written to the college principal and has even sought help from police.

The ABVP has now demanded disciplinary action against the Professor and students involved.

“It is pertinent to point out that a Professor of Hindi from Dyal Singh College (Morning) has been trying to indoctrinate his students in values that are at variance with Indian civilisational ethos. ABVP has appealed to the college administration to dismiss the accused Professor at the earliest, ” said ABVP.
