“This is absolutely absurd. The college magazine should always give space to write on any topic of their choice. And when so much is happening in national and international politics, why does our college refrain us from writing on that.” a third year student was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.

“Putting this clause in an institution which not only has a full fledged department of political science but also where students are engaged in politics is outrageous. Ours has always been a democratic campus and we have never shown any reservation from expressing our views on national and international politics. This is only to curb the critical thinking of students.”  Tanvir Aezas, an Associate Professor of Political Science Department of Ramjas College told Hindustan Times.
