Social activist and author Rahul Easwar’s car was on Thursday damaged and his path blocked by some students after he refused to lend support to a ‘beef festival’ being organised in various colleges in Kerala to protest against the Dadri lynching incident.

On the basis of a complaint lodged by Easwar, police registered a case against 25 students of the Milad E Sherif Memorial College in Kayamkulam.

Easwar had come to the college for delivering a lecture on ‘cyber crime’. When he came out after the talk, some students blocked his path and wanted him to support the ‘beef festival’, college principal Shaik Ahammed said.

Some students closed the gate, raised slogans, and waved black flags at him, he said.

“This is cultural fascism. This shows intolerance. They damaged my car stating I had not supported the beef festival,” said Easwar, who is the grandson of Kandararu Maheshwararu, senior supreme priest of Sabarimala, the hill shrine of Lord Ayappa.

“This is a wrong attitude and cannot be accepted,” he said.

Ahammed said he called Easwar and apologised for the incident.
