JNU students boycott classes in solidarity with victims of Delhi violence
NEW DELHI: Students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University in India have boycotted classes to express solidarity with the victims of the communal violence in northeast Delhi.
Delhi University students also took out a peace march in the campus for communal harmony.
Forty two people have been killed while over two hundred injured in New Delhi’s anti-Muslim mob violence so far.
On Feb 28, Indian opposition Congress Party leader Manish Tewari has said that the transfer of Delhi High Court Judge Justice S Muralidhar was an attempt to intimidate the judiciary.
Justice S Muralidhar was hearing a petition into the organized violence against Muslims in New Delhi.
Criticizing the partial role of police in the wake of riots in New Delhi, Justice S. Muralidhar had called on police to investigate politicians from Narendra Modi’s governing Bharatiya Janata party for inciting violence.
