AISA, ABVP clash over cancellation of Umar Khalid’s event
Supporters of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) protested outside Delhi University’s Ramjas College against cancellation of event of Umar Khalid, a Ph.D. scholar of Jawaharlal Nehru University and student activist who was arrested on charged of sedition last year, as a speaker. The protest turned violent and a massive clash took place between All India Students Association (AISA) and ABVP members. ABVP members on Tuesday disrupted an event for which Jawaharlal Nehru University student Umar Khalid was invited, prompting the college to take back an invitation to another JNU student, Shehla Rashid. The college was forced to call off the seminar after heated protests against Rashid and Khalid, who was accused of shouting anti-India slogans last year.
