BHU (Banaras Hindu University) students started a protest against the appointment of scholar Feroz Khan in the Sanskrit literature Department.

BHU student, Shubham Tiwari protested against this by saying “Just like a Hindu can’t teach in Madrasa, a Muslim can not teach in a gurukul”.

Some students also said that they don’t have a problem with Feroz Khan teaching Sanksrit but one of the reasons for this protest is corruption. According to them Umakant Chaturvedi who is head of the department was Feroz’s previous teacher and he is the one who brought Feroz to BHU which is a sign of corruption and this protest is being seen from Hindu-Muslim angle just to distract everyone from actual reason which is corruption.

Urdu writer, Mohammed Aslam Parvez commented on this protest and said that BHU students should judge Feroz Khan over his command on Sanskrit rather than his name or religion on his Adhar Card.

Rohini Bakshi, Sanskrit, Vedic Chanting and Hindi teacher at City Lit, Holborn London in support of Fero z Khan said that it a crucial time when we all are trying to revive Sanskrit so we need to be inclusive as much as possible. She added that Feroz khan is a celebrated sanskritist who received Sanskrit Yuva Pratibha Samman by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in August.

Later, a bunch of students from University came out in support of Feroz Khan who couldn’t attend the University since his joining.

After all this mess Feroz Khan finally expressed his emotion to a reporter and said that he devoted his whole life to learning Sanskrit and while learning Sanskrit no one made him realize that he is a Muslim but when he wanted to teach it, it has become an only subject.

Students stood with Peace banners in front of the college and said that there are students with low mentality but there is a bunch of students who are willing to welcome Feroz Khan. Students are asking the administration to only focus on justified demand and not to give too much priority to such protests of students and bow to their demands.

Many professors also came out in support through their Facebook posts.
