Some students of the Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), New Delhi who were protesting against the Head of Department of Applied Arts were reportedly thrashed by a group of students today. The students were protesting against HoD Hafiz Ahmed for his alleged favouritism, unfair means of assessment, and sexist comments. The protesting students alleged that the group of students that attacked them did so on the instructions of the Ahmed. One female student who got injured during the violence had to be admitted to the nearby Holy Family Hospital.
“We were on a peaceful protest against the unfair means of assessment when a group of students on instructions of the HoD had started beating us up. They pulled the dupattas (scarves) of female students and groped them. We were pulled by our hair. These are favourite students of our HoD who is the only permanent faculty in the department and is re-appointed each time after his tenure,” said a second-year Arts student.
