Most of the protests happening against the Citizenship Bill are being hijacked by various Muslim groups who are unleashing extreme violence across the country. In one of the incident, the protests took a communal turn in Delhi on Friday after ‘students’ of the controversial Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) University resorted to mob violence against the police officials and shouted Islamic slogans “Allah-o-Akbar” during their protests. As many as 50 students were detained who were later released at around 8:30 pm.
Taking into view these violent protests by unruly students of the Jamia university, the authorities have decided to defer all semester exams scheduled on Saturday and announced winter break from December 16 to January 5. “University will open on January 6, 2020,” said Azeem Ahmed, Public Relations Officer of the university.
“All the semester exams scheduled today have been postponed,” a senior varsity official said.
Jamia students have called a university lockdown on Saturday and had planned to boycott the exams to protest against CAB and also against Friday’s violence following clashes with police during their march.
The students were heard sloganeering against Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Central government and demanded that the Act which has been passed and notified earlier this week, should not be implemented.
Video’s had emerged where Jamia Millia Islamia University students could be seen raising ‘Allaho Akbar’ and ‘Nara-e-Taqbeer’ slogans. They are also heard saying, “Ye shahar zagmagaega, nur-e-la-illaha se, Ye desh zagmagaega, nur-e-la-ilaha se.Nara-e-takbir, Allahu Akbar”.
The ‘students’ of the Jamia Millia Islamia University in Delhi were also seen abusing police with provocative words as they used tear gas to disperse the violent mob.
In another video shared by one of the radical Islamic groups known as Tehzeeb Committee of Jamia Millia Islamia college, a ‘student’ can be seen making communal and provocative statements by claiming that ‘those who want to protect Muslims will have to protect Islam’. There were also several provocative statements that demanded Muslims to take to the streets. The “speech” was followed by a worrying slogan, “tera mera rishta kya, La ilahi illilah”. Similar statements were heard in Kashmir with respect to Pakistan by terrorists where they chanted “Pakistan se rishta kya, La ilahi illilah”.
Around 2,000 Jamia ‘students’ in Delhi were protesting against the CAB. The Jamia protesters against CAB had called for a march to Parliament House from the university campus to express their opposition to the legislation. However, they resorted to violence and broke police barricades.
As the police began to lathi-charge the students to calm down the situation, the protestors resorted to stone-pelting against these police officials. Several policemen have been injured in the mob attack of the students and three policemen are in critical condition in the ICU.
Naseem Ahmad Khan, the Exam Controller, said today: “We had scheduled our classes but there is no attendance. The students studying in this University feel that this Act will be discriminatory against them. We cannot help it. The protesters want the government to rethink on that.”
