ABVP activists storm Jammu University

Activists of the BJP’s student wing, ABVP, stormed Jammu University and disrupted a football match between students of the varsity and Islamic University of Science and Technology, alleging that students from Kashmir had disrespected the national anthem.

Jammu University authorities have ordered a probe and set up a committee to look into the allegations levelled by the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) over disrespect to national anthem by students of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agriculture, Science and Technology (SKUAST).

“We cannot allow anybody to disrespect the national anthem. A committee has been set up to probe the allegation”, Vice Chancellor of Jammu University, Prof R D Sharma  said. ABVP activists alleged the students from SKUAST disrespected the national anthem before the start of a football match at Jammu University’s ground.

“We have cited a photograph which is being circulated on social media showing two students from Kashmir talking to each other during the national anthem at the inaugural function on April 3 ”, a ABVP student said.

ABVP activists entered the Jammu University’s sports ground on Friday during the football final between students of Jammu University and the Islamic University of Science and Technology and raised slogans. They also held a sit-in protest. Prof Sharma said ABVP activists entered the ground and disrupted the competition.
“We had to cancel some of the competitions, because we have three venues on the campus and it is difficult to organise and control such a situation created by these elements.

“We got the information (about some allegations related to disrespect of national anthem) in the evening on the inaugural day of the first inter-university sports championship of 12 universities of Jammu and Kashmir held here. 700 students took part in it”, the vice chancellor said.
