A group of student activists of Jawaharlal Nehru University today held a protest at the campus against a recent clash that occurred between two groups over a pamphlet that was found 'hurtful' by a section.
The students from All India Backward Forum (AIBSF), All India Students Association (AISA), Students Federation of India (SFI), among others attend the protest and blamed the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) of trying to impose its agenda on the University.
The students protesting today alleged that the "goons" of the ABVP were trying to stir violence and trying to impose their "Hinduvadi and casteist" agenda on the campus, said a statement from AIBSF.
The clash occurred last week after a group of ABVP students objected to an article written on Goddess Durga in a campus journal, claiming that it was hurtful to religious sentiments. The AIBSF had circulated the article in the campus.
Members of the two groups had clashed over the issue on Saturday.
