Creates caste divide, harasses upper caste students: Protest against The Print columnist Dilip Mandal erupt in Makhanlal University

One of the ex-student of the university, Rakesh Tripathi, who is also a BJP leader extended full support to protesting students saying professors like Dilip Mandal should be boycotted as they are poisoning the society with their vicious mindset.

The students of Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism and Communication, in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh have initiated a protest against two journalists teaching in the University as guest faculty, namely, Dilip Mandal and Mukesh Kr, alleging that they create caste divide among students.

The students alleged that the two journalists inquire about the castes of students studying in the university on social media and during class hours and then misbehave and harass those students belonging to the upper castes.

The students have submitted a memorandum to Vice-Chancellor, demanding their suspension. Confirming that a committee has been formed by the VC to look into the matter the students also alleged that false statements were being made about their protests. They have demanded an apology from the VC regarding the same.

The students had also submitted a written complaint to the University, however, till the time this report was written, no action was initiated against the casteist journalists.

Written complaint by students

One of the ex-student of the university, Rakesh Tripathi, who is also a BJP leader, while speaking to OpIndia said that it is a shame that teachers like Dilip Mandal are trying to fan caste divide amongst the students studying in a reputed organisation like this one. Extending his support to the protesting students, Tripathi said that they have maligned the reputation of the university.

He requests all the students to stand together by the cause and make sure that journalists like Dilip Mandal are dismissed from their position. Tripathi urges all the students to raise their voices against such casteist faculty members and boycott them as they who are poisoning the society with their vicious mindset.

Tripathi said that students at the Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism and Communication have always welcomed and accepted professors and students from various castes and religion, In fact, caste and religion have never mattered for us, said the BJP leader, asserting that we have always valued the professor for his knowledge, wisdom and accomplishments. He said that it is very unfortunate that professors like Dilip Mandal, are contaminating the university’s environment by spreading their prejudice.

Interestingly, Dilip Mandal in the same journalist and a columnist associated with Shekhar Gupta’s The Print, who had last month, accused Twitter of being Brahmanvadi for not awarding him with a Blue Tick. Dilip Mandal had then urged people to trend ‘Brahmanvadi Twitter’ on the social media platform giving a sneak peek into his casteist mentality.

Dilip Mandal today took to Twitter to allege that students belonging to the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad have been creating a ruckus and resorted to vandalism in the university campus while protesting against him and his Phule-Ambedkar ideologies.

In the latest, Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism and Communication Registrar, Deependra Baghel has come up with a statement which said: “I’ve accepted their demand that they’ll also be a part of the committee. Dilip Mandal and Mukesh Kumar won’t enter the University until the probe is completed. But they’re demanding that the VC seek apology over his statement, a statement which they twisted”.
