JTSA condemns RLA College directive to Saibaba

Statement from Jamia Teachers Solidarity Association

We are appalled to learn that the administration of the Ram Lal Anand College, where Dr. Saibaba teaches has served him a letter directing him not to enter the college without permission as it creates “law and order problems”. The Principal is surely referring to the repeated attempts by the ABVP and the DUSU to assault Dr. Saibaba. Instead of acting against criminal intimidation of the faculty member, the college administration has chosen to criminalize the victim of ABVP’s lumpenism.

In serving such a notice, the college administration has clearly shown that it stands with the storm troopers allied to the ruling dispensation, and will do nothing to safeguard the physical well being of its faculty members, nor preserve its academic space from rampant violation by goons.

We stand in solidarity with Dr. Saibaba and the Ram Lal Anand College Staff Association which has been seeking his reinstatement.
