Citing the problems created due to Savarkar statue in Delhi University, the Tamil Nadu Muslim League (TNML), on Friday, demanded the state and Union governments not to permit statues of political leaders inside educational institutions.
He also said that at the time of election to students’ council in Delhi University, ABVP placed the statue of Savarkar inside the campus without the permission of University authorities. They have also placed the statue of Subash Chandra Bose and Bhagat Singh along with the statue of Savarkar.
Students attached to various left student unions protested against the statue of Savarkar and demanded the University authorities to remove the illegal statue, but as authorities did not take action, a garland of slippers was worn on the statue of Savarkar. The incident has created tension in Delhi University campus and now the students are divided on religious lines, recalled Mustafa.
