DU Protest: The University of Delhi has debarred two students, now they can’t take admission into any university, college or educational institution for a year. The reason behind this was that a few students were caught doing a screening of a BBC documentary on the Gujarat Riots on campus.
Further, on 24 March, Friday, the student union decided to do a mass protest against this action of the university. According to the All India Students’ Association (AISA) secretary, Anjali said, “Students meet at DU Arts Faculty to protest against the arbitrary notice of departing two students. They were also brutally beaten and detained.”
Moreover, she said that when students appeal against the varsity notice outside the campus. Guards, police and CRPF personnel took away the democratic rights of students.

As per the AISA secretary, around 25 students were detained at the Burari police station, in New Delhi. And students will not remain quite against such behaviour by varsity. AISA demanded the withdrawal of notice and protection of campus democracy.
Furthermore, Manik Gupta, DU AISA president said, “We get to know about debarred students through media, before that no notice or communication occurred between the administration and students. Consequently, we went to the Proctor to urge clarification on the issue and submit the memorandum.”
What’s the matter?
On 27 January 2023, a student group did the screening of the BBC documentary without permission. As a result, Delhi University observed and took action against 8 students. Also, debarred two students: Ravinder and Lokesh. However, the remaining 6 students got punishment but were not that strict. And, these students are instructed to write an apology letter to the DU administration.
On this issue, Manik Gupta argued that we went to the Proctor with Ravinder but the administration didn’t even recognise him. Manik puts the question on media information too that as per media Ravinder belongs to the law department. But he is from the Philosophy department, so how can he be debarred without knowing his face, course and all?
