Jinhe naaz hai Hind par vo kahaan hain?

बड़े अजीब आदाब हैं आज कल के ।

In a shocking display of Taliban-like fanaticism, a lecturer has been barred from entering the campus of Aliah University in Kolkata, West Bengal’s first ‘Muslim university’ set up by upgrading the Calcutta Madarsa and funded by taxpayers, simply because she refuses to wear the burqa as demanded by the students union. Ms Shirin Middya, who has stood up to the absurd and untenable demand that she comply with a ‘decent’ dress code, that is, don a burqa, has flouted no law of the land or rule of the UGC. Yet, she has so far found no support from either the university officials, including the Vice-Chancellor, or the CPI(M)-led Left Front Government. Authorities have inexplicably refrained from intervening although Ms Middya has been forced to stay out of the campus for three months now. Rather than succumb to the terror tactics of the Islamist goons masquerading as ‘student leaders’, who obviously enjoy the patronage of cynical politicians and their morally bankrupt parties, Ms Middya has chosen to sit it out. This is in sharp contrast to the other female lecturers who have meekly agreed to wear the burqa. What makes the hounding of Ms Middya particularly obnoxious is that Aliah University is not an Islamic charity funded institution but governed by the rules of the UGC; its expenses are borne by the public exchequer. Hence, to insist that female teachers must wear the burqa simply because the institution is labelled as a ‘Muslim university’ amounts to a crime that merits tough punishment.

As for the stunning silence and inaction of the Left Front Government, which does not tire of parading its ‘secular’ credentials, it can only be explained as craven indulgence of fanatics in the hope of Muslim votes. It is the Left’s sly collusion with Islamists that has fetched grief to Kerala; the situation in West Bengal could not have been any better.
.With what had been kept under wraps till now becoming public knowledge and the entire nation repelled by the grotesque assault on personal liberty by those claiming to speak for Islam, the least that the Left Front Government can do is to instruct the Vice-Chancellor to rid the campus of malcontents and abolish the ‘dress code’ that has been imposed by those who have scant regard and even less respect for the law of the land. If the Vice-Chancellor fails to do so, he should be sacked and the so-called university should be shut sine die. India does not need such dens of regressive fanaticism.

they call India a secular state.....but here it doesn't seem to any such feeling.....Why to impose a dress code on any person just on the name of religion??? Why just dress code.....nothing should be imposed.

Perfect title given to the post.....just a form of "Dictatorship".....if such situations continue to persist in the future, then.....(you know it in a much better way)......no need to say it....

I do not blame either the college or the students.Our political leaders have realised that the only way out to power without responsibility and accountability is to create a divide on the basis of religion and caste.
The blame squarely lies at the door of the politicians supported by babus and helped by biased media.

How do we know said...

Hi Cynosure: agree.

Chowla sir: we are the govt that we choose..

and nobody will say a word against them. but if there were a so-called Hindu university and the dress code imposed would have even been a saari, this country's secular media would have raised a furore!

The Taliban and Islamofacists are not your friends. I especially take umbrage to their view of women as property or some sort of lesser being.

I think, the law of the land must prevail.

How do we know said...

Hi Adee: problem ye nahi hai ki koi aur kuchh bolega ya nahi. problem ye bhi hai ki hum kya karenge... na?

Hi Phos: oh yes.. with u on that totally!

Onkar sir: is land mein kaun sa law baaki hai? Am disgusted to hear that people can get away with this..
