Friends of AISA, AISF and NSUI were also present at the site for the signature campaign to express solidarity with prof. Pandey organized by AIPWA . All of us unitedly burnt the effigy of BoG's chairman.
The meeting held the opinion that BoG's decision to sack prof. Pandey is an outcome of pre plotted mission of saffronizing educational institutions.Students shouted slogans supporting prof.Pandey and criticized baseless allegations of his being anti national and pro naxal as made by RSS driven administrative puppets.
Addressing the protest prof. Chauthiram Yadav said "The hindutva fascist regime is intellectually bankrupted and this has been made clear by what it has done with prof. Pandey. It has become totally intolerant towards plurality of ideas and has taken resort to tag every other idea as anti national."
prof. Baliraj Pandey said " BoG's decision is an example of sheer foolishness. It is ridiculous and unacceptable to term a man of as high a stature as prof.Pandey as anti nationalThe world knows that he has always worked for people's cause. This situation is even more alarming than the times of Emergency and role of our intellectuals has become very much crucial now. It is time that they should line up with the people's movement and resist the fascist attitude running in the name of Nationalism."
Meanwhile self proclaimed nationalists gathered shouting slogans of "jay shree Ram, BHU prshasan zindabad". These KAPOOTS of BharatMata showed their true faces by starting verbal abuse shouting "China k dalaalon ko jootey maaro saalo ko". Our beloved poet Muktibodh has rightly described these rogues in one of his poems
सत्ता के परब्रह्म ईश्वर के आसपास
सांस्कृतिक लहंगों में लफगों का लास रास
खुश होकर तालियाँ देते हुए गोलमटोल
बिके हुए मूर्खों के होठों पर हीन हास
शब्दों का अर्थ जब
And in this fascist era when every Word, including nationalism, is made detached from its real Meaning, it is on us to fight against this anomaly and place everything where it really belongs.
