New Delhi: After an alleged right-wing attack on St Stephens’ College of Delhi University, a bus stop near the College has been painted with slogans “Mandir nahi banega, college yahin rahega. Smash autonomy’. The move comes into picture two days after college’s chapel door was defaced with the slogan “Mandir Yahin Banega” allegedly by right-wing elements, along with a slogan on a cross ‘I am going to hell’ written on it with an Om symbol.
The National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), in a statement, had demanded action against the people involved in defacing the chapel door. “Both the slogans show the utterly disgusting mentality of the person or persons involved in such defacement of structures inside the college premises from where great nobles souls have stepped out and made their own mark in India’s history,” it said.
A report by India Today said that the Delhi Police have not yet received any complaint regarding the graffiti on the bus stop board.
The statement of NSUI had further read, “They (accused) have tried to polarise the student community on the basis of religion and fake nationalism several times but have failed on every attempt. They will fail again.”
The student outfit said that right-wing elements do such acts every year before the beginning of the new academic year and campaigning for Delhi University Students’ Union election in the University contending last year incident at Ramjas College.
