After students from Kerala were allegedly beaten up in the Central University of Jammu, the website of the varsity has been hacked by a group who call themselves “Kerala Cyber Warriors’’, reported the Indian Express.
On April 15, two students from Kerala were attacked after they were labeled as traitors over allegations of ‘eating beef’.
The students alleged that vice chancellor and hostel warden had stopped the students from lodging complaints. “If you complain, you will not be allowed to write the exam,” the students were told.
The students have said that ABVP-RSS workers were behind the attack.
The report said that denying any attack on students from Kerala, CUJ Vice-Chancellor Prof Ashok Aima said the varsity administration has lodged a police complaint to trace those who hacked the website. “These students (from Kerala) belong to the AISF and SFI. All they want is free food, free liquor and free drugs…nobody questions them,” he said.
V-C Aima said CUJ has nearly 1,500 students and nearly 60-65 per cent of them are Muslims, “including those from Kashmir and Kerala”. Putting the number of students from Kerala at 70-80, he said, “They are very volatile; they are hardcore members of AISF and Leftist movement.”
The hackers, who called themselves “Kerala Cyber Warriors’’, said their action is to protest the alleged attack on students from Kerala by some “brainless ABVP-RSS’’ activists in Jammu, and “labelling them as beef eaters, JNU sympathisers, anti-nationals’’.
ABVP’s CUJ unit president Mukesh Manhas said, “They are people with Left ideology. As there are no takers for that (ideology) on campus, they are stooping low by naming ABVP and RSS…. We condemn the violence on campus, but the way they are raising false accusations, anything can happen (now), and they alone will be responsible.”
