20 Oct, 2011. New Delhi. Jamia Millia Islamia Administration has resorted to wrongful tactics to suppress the Forum for Student's Democracy's movement to restore Students Union in the University.
The Administration is harassing the students involved with FSD movement. So much so, the FSD convener Afroz Alam Sahil is targeted personally and guards are appointed to monitor his movements in the campus.
Meanwhile FSD wrote a letter to all teachers of JMI to seek their support in the cause. In the letter the forum requested teachers to join the movement and guide the students in establishing democracy in JMI.
It should be noted that FSD spearheaded its campaign for students union Elections in Central University Jamia Millia Islamia on Wednesday with launching of online petition for the cause.
The online petition will be sent to University Grant Commission, Ministry of HRD and JMI administration. Those who wish to support the movement can file the petition online at http://www.petitiononline.com/jmsu/petition.html.
FSD has already launched an RTI campaign to support the movement. Several RTIs questioning policy and stand of JMI have been filed. RTI's have also questioned collection and expenditure of student union funds in JMI.
Soon this movement for restoration of student unions in colleges and universities will take a national platform and RTI's will be filed in universities and colleges all across India.
