Patiala, December 7

Students of Punjabi University held a protest on the university campus over the killing of civilians during an anti-insurgency operation in Nagaland. Students alleged that religious minorities were being targeted in the country.

Students associated with the Punjab Radical Students’ Union said they organised the protest on the anniversary of demolition of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya. Rashpinder Singh Jimmi of the union said the Babri Masjid was demolished in 1992 by right wing parties.

He said, “Right wing parties are targeting minorities, including Muslims, Christians and Sikhs. Even Kashmiri and Naga people are also being targeted in the same manner. The killing of civilians in Nagaland is also an example of the same. The right wing parties are playing religious card and are also working for big corporate houses.”
