IIT Bombay students protest against desecration of Swami Vivekananda’s statue by JNU students

Speaking to OpIndia IIT Bombay students said the protests were against the hatred that is being spread and use of ill means to hamper with Swami Vivekananda's statue.

The protest meet at IIT Bombay took place at around 6:45 PM. Speaking to OpIndia, students who did not want to be identified fearing reprisals from some left-leaning faculty who teach at HSS (Humanities and Social Sciences) department of the leading tech institute in India said the protests were against the hatred that is being spread and use of ill means to hamper with Swami Vivekananda’s statue.

A PhD scholar at the IIT Bombay spoke about how Swami Vivekananda’s biography  played an important part in him taking up science. “My father is a farmer and I had no access to books. But during my school days I remember a professor emphasising on the statement “you are infinite” by Swami Vivekananda ji. I think that statement changed my life completely,” he said.

A BTech student talked about how Swami Vivekananda played an integral part in highlighting India on world map. “A person who is universally accepted cannot be denied his space by some pseudo intellectuals trying to demean everything that culturally unites us,” she said.

A post-doc fellow at the HSS said that there is a necessity of Swami Vivekananda’s thoughts in today’s India. Emphasising on what happened in JNU to be morally, ethically unacceptable to students across spectrums he urged them to read Swami Vivekananda’s works before doing something so inherently intolerant in nature.
