JNU students’ union demands reconstruction of Babri Masjid, stages protest

New Delhi, December 07 (KMS): The students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University’s Students Union condemned the demolition of Babri Masjid and demanded reconstruction of the mosque in Ayodhya.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University organised a protest march on the completion of 29 years to the demolition of the Babri Masjid demanding reconstruction of the historic mosque.

The students gathered at a site holding placards, shouting slogans, and later they took out the march inside the campus. The protest march carried out on Monday evening ended at the Chandrabhaga Hostel. The student leaders also made speeches demanding reconstruction of the mosque.

Saket Moon, vice president of the JNU Students Union said that with the reconstruction of the Babri Masjid justice will be delivered.

Aishe Ghosh, the JNUSU president said after Babri Masjid, the next target of the BJP is Kashi and they (BJP) have started working on it.

“We are remembering Baba Saheb on this day. We are also condemning the killing of civilians in Nagaland. BJP and RSS haven’t done anything in the name of development, but they are dividing us in the name of religion, law and order is crippling,” she said.

The JNU administration had recently warned against holding the protest, but the student union still held the protest. The student wing also organised a show at the campus in which a movie based on the Babri Masjid demolition was shown. The admin had asked the students not to telecast any such film otherwise strict action would be taken.

On 6 December 1992, Hindu extremists belonging to Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Vishva Hindu Parishad, Bajrangdal and other rightwing organisations demolished the mosque. Thousands of Muslims were massacred by the Hindu extremists in the subsequent anti-Muslim riots across India.
