An assistant professor of Delhi University landed into controversy by writing obscene words about Hindu goddess Durga in a Facebook post.

The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) quickly condemned the act of professor. ABVP also demanded immediate suspension of the professor.

Police complaint was filed against Mr Kedar Kumar Mandal of Dayal Singh College for his act. The National Democratic Teachers Front (NDTF), a BJP-affiliated teacher's body, filed a complaint on Saturday at the Lodhi Colony police station.

Case was registered under section 153A & 295A IPC against Kedar Mandal, Assistant Professor at Dyal Singh College in Delhi University for making objectionable statement on Goddess Durga.

Mandal had posted the controversial Facebook update at 07:43 pm on Friday and later deleted it. 

“We demand his suspension and we request the student community to boycott his classes. Mandal has provoked sentiments during a festival time of Hindu - Navratri,” ABVP’s Dayal Singh College unit said in a statement.

“If allowed to continue as a teacher he will only spread hatred among students.”
