Students from north India have been denied permission by authorities to conduct Saraswati Puja in the Cochin University College of Engineering in Kerala’s Alappuzha district, news agency ANI reported on Thursday.

“It is informed that the request of North Indians students to conduct ‘Saraswati Pooja’ has been declined by the Vice-Chancellor, since ours is a secular campus and as such, we cannot permit religious function/activities of any religion inside campus,” the joint registrar of Cochin University of Science and Technology (Cusat) said in a notice on February 1.

Last year, the college, which is affiliated to Cusat, was shut down indefinitely on January 25 following a clash between two groups of students after beef cutlets were allegedly served during an event on its campus.

A section of students, mostly from north India, had alleged that they were served beef after being told that they were vegetarian, on the sidelines of a seminar on the college campus near Alappuzha on January 25.

The group had alleged that the beef incident was “revenge” a section of students and teachers of the college had taken on them for organising Saraswati Puja on the campus on January 22 despite opposition from the latter.

Appreciate you tagging me @Gollum Bhai but since I'm a descendent of precursors of Turkish Barbarians and a worshipper of Patriarchal , misogynistic Gods such as Ram and Shiva , don't think my comments here would be of any value.

But good to see our brothers from South and East leading from the front to save the Dharma from influence of outer Mlechhas.

God's own country indeed.

Acha btw , did they apply the same rules for Christmas as well or is it no more considered a religious festival in our most advanced/liberal/educated state?

Devil's advocate: they said not permitted any religious activity. Sounds like the French type of secularism, if they apply to all religions.

They celebrated Christmas last year, now they are saying it was cultural and not religious.

Agree with them if they keep everything related to religion out of the campus irrespective of which religion it is.

You really think they will :cantstop:

It's a classic case of selective secularism which is now a common practice in our country

Its not about secularism or even atheism. Its just that they are against idol worship. And obvious reasons for that. Now the question should be when, not if, will such intolerant things be forced upon all over the country.

Saraswati Puja is not a religious activity in an educational institution in India it is a cultural activity.

 

What next ban on The Ashoka chakra in our flag? Isn’t that a religious iconography as well.

 

This is chewtiyapa of the highest order.

 

Students who don’t want to start their day with  “saraswati namastubhyam”  can study in a madrasa or if that is extreme in a catholic school ( there are plenty of good ones from a educational perspective).
