Student Asked to Leave Hostel For Showing ‘Homosexual Tendencies’

Varanasi, Sep 5: A first-year BA Honours student of Mahila Maha Vidhyalaya, affiliated to the Banaras Hindu University (BHU), was allegedly asked to leave the hostel because she showed ‘homosexual tendencies and indiscipline’. The student’s parents were called by the authorities to take her away and to get her treated for her ‘disease’. While the college authorities maintained that the student was asked to leave as she had been harassing fellow students, a professor claimed that it was because of her “showing tendencies of being homosexual”. He also told The Indian Express that this was done to maintain peace and discipline.

“Around 16 boarders had given me in writing that the student was harassing them and scaring them with her activities and indiscipline. The student was also threatening fellow boarders with suicide if they did not yield to her demands,” said Assistant professor Neelam Atri, who took disciplinary action against the student, Indian Express reported.

Atri refused to comment on “charges of homosexuality” on the student. “There is nothing like this. Students alleging this want to bring the university a bad name. This is an internal matter,” she said. Last week, the student’s parents were called to the college and asked to get her treated for the “disease”,” she was reported as saying by IE.

रानी खेड़ा की एकजुटता पूरे दिल्ली देहात की आवाज है

दोस्तों, दिल्ली देहात को कूड़ेदान बनाने की साजिश के खिलाफ गांवों और कालोनियों की एकजुटता अडिग है। नई दिल्ली में बैठे हुए ओहदेदार ये जानते नहीं हैं कि अगर देहात की हरियाली और स्वच्छ वातावरण को नष्ट किया गया तो नई दिल्ली में भी सांस लेना दूभर हो जाएगा। एनसीआर के नोएडा, गुड़गांव और फरीदाबाद में कंक्रीट का जंगल खड़ा कर दिया गया है। ऐसी हालत में सिर्फ दिल्ली के गांव ही हैं जो साफ़ हवा की सप्लाई बनाये हुए हैं। लेकिन बिना सोचे समझे हर बार हमारे गांवों को निशाना बनाया जा रहा है। क्या हमें जीने का अधिकार नहीं है ? क्या हमें साफ़ हवा और पीने का पानी नहीं चाहिए ?

रानी खेड़ा में हम सब एक हैं। हमारी ये एकता नरेला में, बवाना में, क़ुतुब गढ़ में, कंझावला में, कराला में, मुंडका में, नांगलोई में, टिकरी में, दिचाऊं में, ढांसा में, ईशापुर में, छावला में, नजफगढ़ में, पालम में और महरौली में हर उस जगह दिखाई देगी जहाँ गांव के हितों पर चोट पहुंचाने की कोशिश नई दिल्ली की तरफ से होगी।

चार-छह एकड़ की सरकारी कोठियों में जमे हुए लोग पहले अपने लॉन में गाजीपुर के कचरे के दो ट्रक डलवाएं और फिर जिन्दा रहकर दिखाएँ…!!!

रानी खेड़ा के संघर्ष में मीडिया ने हमारा खूब साथ दिया है। मीडिया के हमारे मित्र इस बात को भी लगातार उठा रहे हैं कि किस प्रकार से नेता कचरे की समस्या का ठोस समाधान तलाशने की बजाय हाथ पर हाथ धरे बैठे रहे हैं।

दिल्ली देहात के हजारों युवा साथी और महिला शक्ति इस संघर्ष में दिन-रात साथ खड़े हैं। हमे चौंकन्ना रहना होगा। हमारी एकता ही हमारी ताकत है।
