UTTAR PRADESH — Students from Jammu and Kashmir have come under sharp criticism for offering ‘Namaz’ at the University campus in Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh.
Right-wing organization All India Hindu Mahasabha has demanded action against the students and even threatened to perform Shuddhikaran (purification process) on the campus with Gangajal and recite Hanuman Chalisa if the university fails to take any action against the Kashmiri students.
Sanskriti University, however, has clarified that the matter is being exaggerated and the video circulated on social media is a month old. The University has asked Kashmiri students to offer prayers in their hostel and not in the open.
All India Hindu Mahasabha submitted a memorandum to the district administration seeking action against the students as well as the university authorities.
“Eighty-two Muslim students are studying under government scholarship. Many of them hail from Jammu and Kashmir. It has been noted that for many days, these students are offering Namaz on the university campus,” the memorandum claimed.
