University of Hyderabad administration ostracizes 5 Dalit Scholars: A Pictorial

Five Research Scholars (Ph.D students): Dontha Prashanth, Rohith Vemula, Seshu Chemudugunta, Vijay Kumar, P Sundar, Sunkanna Velpula at University of Hyderabad are ostracized by the decision of the University to restrict their entry into hostels, administration buildings and other common places in groups and are not permitted to participate in Students’ Union elections, in the incidents related to ASA vs ABVP on 03.08.2015. This decision of suspension was taken by the Executive Council, the highest apex body of the University without conducting any enquiry. Isn’t this similar to a dominant caste ostracizing a Dalit-household from the village; here, 5 senior research scholars who happen to be from a Dalit background are cast out from the day-to-day activities of the university space.
