Jamaat Islami Hind's delegation visits violence-hit JNU


Jamaat's delegation led by its Vice President S. Ameenul Hasan visits JNU campus

New Delhi: A high-level delegation of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind visited the areas of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) which were allegedly attacked by ABVP goons. The team led by JIH Vice President S. Ameenul Hasan met with students and faculty members at the JNU campus.

In the Sabarmati hostel, they were shocked to see shattered glass, broken doors and fire extinguishing powder thrown inside the room, by breaking the ventilator glass above the door, to suffocate those locked inside. There were broken flowers pots used for banging doors and breaking the windows.

They also spoke to many students who are under deep shock and trauma. The hostel atmosphere is that of gloom and acrimony and the entrance of the hostel had been quite devastated.

Some rooms on the ground floor and some in the first floor were selectively ransacked and inmates were brutally attacked. The attackers had room numbers and the name of the persons. The security guards let only the attackers in and did not allow the fleeing students out. When they begged to open the gate they were ruthlessly beaten up by the police in the gate who were mute spectators to the mayhem going on inside.  Few rooms which had displayed their allegiance to the ideology of hate were untouched. This is a piece of clear evidence that the whole carnage was carried on in connivance with the administration and few hostel inmates corroborated with the attackers by identifying the rooms and persons to be attacked.

The students under the leadership of JNUSU have been protesting against the fee hike in the university. JNU has a glorious past of openness, inclusiveness, dissent and rational debate which is anathema to the fascist ideology. On the issue of fee hike, JNU students have been vehemently opposing the government move. Malik Motasim Khan and Mohammad Ahmad the national secretaries and Inamur Rehman Asst. Secretary of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind were also part of the delegation.

Earlier the organisation had demanded an immediate independent enquiry into the incident.
