The Sanskrit Vidhya Dharma Faculty at the Banaras Hindu University reopened today despite continued protests by students over a Muslim professor being appointed to teach the subject. Locks on department buildings were opened at about 3.30 pm in the presence of faculty members. Students were urged to return to class but they refused to do so and have indicated they will continue agitations. A section of BHU students have spent the last 14 days protesting the decision to appoint Professor Firoze Khan to the faculty; they claim that a non-Hindu cannot teach such a specialised subject.
