Students at Banaras Hindu University in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's constituency have been seething with anger after the horrific police attack on protesting students on Saturday. Students carried out protests after a woman was allegedly molested on campus by a group of men. The protest also questioned gender discrimination on campus by a system that neither allows women to participate in political protests nor allows them the same rights as men students. Today, police filed 1,000 FIRs against BHU students for arson and other charges. On The Buck Stops Here, the Vice Chancellor of Banaras Hindu University joins us along with students and political leaders as we debate the BHU violence. Was it about gender justice and, if it ended up becoming more about political opportunism?
