Slogans against India’s ties with Israel

Slogans critical of India’s growing ties with Israel were shouted by hundreds of Palestinian students at Al-Quds University campus even as President Pranab Mukherjee was being conferred an honorary degree today.

Placards with slogans “India why do you cooperate with the occupiers (Israel)”, “Indian President raise your voice against Israel’s aggression”, and “Indian President don’t keep quiet against the butchers slaying Palestinians” were carried by the students as Mukherjee was leaving the campus here in East Jerusalem.

The demonstration came in the middle of heightened tensions and more killings between Israelis and Palestinians which have resulted in hundreds of casualties, including some today.

Inside the university auditorium Mukherjee was hailed as “a Knight of Peace” and loudly cheered when he mentioned all the help rendered by India to the Palestinians.
