Protests At Lucknow University, Cops Ask Students To Remain Inside

Lucknow: Students threw stones at the police who kept them shut within the gates as a massive protest erupted at a university in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh on Monday morning. Hundreds of students of the Nadwa university pushed against the main gates as the cops kept the gates firmly shut.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Stones, bricks and slippers were thrown from within the campus. Scores of policemen in riot gear guarded the gate.

The situation threatened to spiral out of control as students tried to come out but the police refused. Policemen were also seen retaliating by throwing the stones back.

Last evening, violence broke out at Delhi’s Jamia Millia University during protests over a citizenship law passed last week. The police are accused of barging into the campus and beating students. The police claim they entered the university after being targeted by a mob that threw stones at them.

Protests by students and others have erupted across the country over the new citizenship law that makes it easier for non-Muslims from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh to become Indian citizens. Critics say the law discriminates against Muslims and is against secular principles of the constitution.

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a petition against the police crackdown on students tomorrow but has said “the rioting must stop”.
