On December 18, after his suspension along with four other Dalit research scholars for allegedly assaulting an ABVP leader was upheld, Rohith wrote to V-C Prof P Appa Rao, “First, let me praise your dedicated take on the self-respecting movement of Dalits in campus.

    The article is written with the primary intention of fanning the fire. The suspension of 5 students was due to their physical ault on AbVP student. He was organising a protest against ASA which had organised a pro yakub Menon event in campus m abvp student was aulted and hospitalised. Univ executive council suspended the students and media makes it a Dalit non Dalit issue !

      But can you deny most of the terrorists are Muslims.? And I was told by a Muslim that daily they pray to conquer over infidels.

            If these 5 students were organizing in support of Yaqub Memon - then they should be bed as Deshadrohis.

                  Politics can get to such lows, that a person is forced to commit suicide. Shame on minister who interfered on behalf of ABVP goons. Shamelessly he is still holding the post.
