‘Probe was ordered after Hindu right-wing members submit video’

A university in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar has launched an investigation after Hindu right-wing members complained that a student was seen offering nimaz in hijab in a classroom.

Local members of Jagran Manch submitted a memorandum to the varsity along with a video, seeking action.

Hari Singh Gour Central University doesn’t have a dress code, its registrar Dr Santosh Seghoura said. A six-member probe member committee will now investigate the incident.

The university issued a notification on Saturday, instructing students that if they want to carry out any religious act, they should do so at home or at designated places of worship, and not on the university premises, “so that the environment of the university remains peaceful”.

If any student is found violating this, disciplinary action will be taken, it warned.

A statement issued by the university said they had received a complaint about the nimaz in classroom.

“After receiving the complaint, along with a video regarding the same, a six-member probe committee has been constituted and asked to submit its report within three working days. The next course of action will be decided on the basis of its findings,” Dr Seghoura was quoted as saying by Times of India.

There were also reports that some students recited the Hanuman Chalisa on campus as a reaction to the nimaz, but Seghoura denied it. “Nothing of this sort happened. Some students came and submitted their complaint,” the registrar said.
