All India Students‚Äô Association (AISA) will be holding silent marches in various colleges of Delhi University against the incidents of violence on campus over the past one year.
AISA’s campaign for this year has been a ‚Äúcampus without violence‚Äù.
“The entire year witnessed a sharp rise in instances of violence by the ABVP on students and professors, which has unsettled the academic freedom of our campus‚Äù. said an AISA member.
‚ÄúThere were a number of instances where seminars were disrupted. Academic discussions, and movie screenings were vandalised in the name of nationalism.”
In the past,AISA had accused ABVP of becoming the ‚Äòcensor board‚Äô of Delhi University and attacking any event which went against its ideology.
‚ÄúWith the beginning of the new session, the ABVP has openly declared that it will not allow anyone to organise anything or speak anything. Instances of violence have been reported to administrations of Satyawati College, Motilal Nehru College, Shivaji College and Ramjas College etc. and complaints and FIRs have been filed in most cases. Yet, neither the college administration nor the police is taking the issue seriously,‚Äù said the student organisation.
