New Delhi :  

Students of Kolkata's Jadavpur University on Sunday raised 'Azadi' (freedom) slogans as a show of protest against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Students of Jadavpur University were holding banners which read "Yogi is the new Trump...Brahminical version of white supremacy". They also raised slogans like "Azadi", "Halla Bol" and "RSS door hatao".

The 'Azaadi' slogans were raised by the students in front of the Academy of Fine Arts where an international seminar on the persecution of minority Hindu-Buddhist Christians in Bangladesh is going on.

"This protest is against the RSS' conducting of seminar on the issue of minorities in Bangladesh. We think the same RSS which has been the reason for the deaths of thousands in Godhra, in Muzaffarnagar cannot address the minority issue. We doubt their credibility, rather we think they are here to evoke communal sentiments and pitting one against the other. So we are protesting here," Debopriyo Som, a student, and United Students Democratic Front (USDF) member told ANI.

Earlier, Posters calling for 'azadi' for Kashmir, Manipur and Nagaland were put up at Jadavpur University in February only to be torn down by ABVP activists, who allegedly vandalised the university complex on Wednesday.
