Dhrupadi Ghosh, an active member of student organisation DISSC, alleges that this move is subsequent to her activism and 'because they raise students' issues in university.' The social media post which states, 'Jamia targets activist, cancels PhD,' also mentions that four other students of the same group have been given show cause notice.
NDTV talked to an official about the issue to which the reply was quite 'technical.' According to the official, Ms Ghosh has a qualification in Fine Arts which is completely (not even remotely) an allied subject of Sociology. Only when the Board of Studies realized it, they decided to cancel her admission.
The University official also emphasized on the University's move and discarded the allegations of 'activism' as a main reason for this issue. 'Many students get involved in protests against administration, and no such allegation has been raised by any. In her case, it is entirely the decision of the academics and the Board of Studies.'
In support of Ms Ghosh, United General Body Meeting will be held today at 6 pm at Polytechnic Park for deciding on further action.
