Vadodara College students, teachers protest against arrest of their colleagues

Students and teachers of M.S. University in Vadodara today demanded immediate release of the two art students, arrested by the police for immoral depiction of Hindu gods and goddesses in their paintings.

Vadodara (Gujarat) May 12 : Students and teachers of M.S. University in Vadodara today demanded immediate release of the two art students, arrested by the police for 'immoral' depiction of Hindu gods and goddesses in their paintings.

They also demanded revoking of the suspension order against the Head of the Department of the Arts faculty, who had supported the students.

On Thursday, police had arrested two students of the University for an exhibition of works, which was objected to by activists of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) after the right wing group members ransacked the exhibition alleging that the exhibition was an attack on Hindu religion's sensibilities.

The students and teachers today took out protest demonstration carrying banners and placards and vowed to intensify their agitation for release of the arrested students and reinstatement of the suspended teacher.

"Yesterday, our Head of the Department, Shivji Pannikar sir was suspended from duty. And our friend who was arrested has still not been granted bail. We are protesting against these actions because the university authorities are not supporting us," said Abhiram, a protesting student.

However, the suspended teacher had earlier said that the exhibition was not for public viewing but was meant only for internal assessment of students.

"Instead of controlling outsiders who just walked into the college premises, disrupting the ongoing examinations, the authorities have suspended a teacher. The person who has given this directive should be dismissed from service because nobody can act against the rules of the university," said I.I. Pandya, representative of the Baroda University Teachers Association (BUTA).

The teaching community has charged the Vice Chancellor (VC) of the University for succumbing to VHP pressure.
