Culture Minister Kapil Mishra Saturday wrote to Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi against the “regressive, discriminatory and dictatorial” rules and “unjust” fee structure of the new Hindu College girls’ hostel.
Referring to the hostel prospectus, in which students have been asked to “adhere to a dress code”, and allowed “only one night out in a month”, Mishra said, “It is shameful that almost 200 years after Raja Ram Mohan Roy’s death, the women of Delhi University, let alone India, are not truly free.”

“We are still attempting to cage the women in our country under the garb of safety, instead of demanding the rule of law, justice and order from the government and police,” Mishra wrote in his letter.
Calling Delhi University a “beacon of excellence”, Mishra said, “the rules mentioned above are appalling, amount to moral policing, and have no place in a civil and progressive society.”
