[Prof Mungekar Committee Report on caste discrimination in Vardhman Mahavir Medical College, Delhi, P 18]

Dear Friends,

We all are aware of how the educational institutions have been discriminating the reserved category students, deliberately failing them in different subjects for years together. In recent past many such cases have been in highlight due to the strong resistance shown by the students against such discriminatory practices in their institutions like AIIMS, Vardhman Mahavir Medical College, MAMC, KGMC (Lucknow), IITs, JNU etc.

In all such cases, it is seen that most of the times our students are being repeatedly failed by just 1 or 2 marks in some specific subjects for years and thus breaking their morale and branding them as "inferior"/ "incapable" forever.

UGC NET 2012 results are completely caste biased

Dalit Camera: Through Un-Touchable Eyes

~

~

Students from Aligarh Muslim University, Delhi and SIO committee members are saying that UGC NET results of 2012 have forcibly denied JRF to eligible SC/ST/OBC students.

The cut-off marks for different categories in various subjects are revealing. In almost 14 subjects, the cut-off marks for OBCs are more than the cut-off marks for the General candidates, and the cut-off marks for SC/ST students in a couple of subjects are also higher than the cut-off for General Category students!

Condemn JNU Administration’s Crackdown on Students

Condemn JNU Administration's Crackdown on Anoop, Anand, Abhay, Kusum

Appeal to all progressive forces to unite for the fight against draconian laws that curb the democratic space & freedom to choice of food. Expose the Brahmanical 'egoism' and superiority complex of DSU.

The New Materialists

Expose the JNU Administration, Judiciary, Media and RSS nexus

We 'The New Materialists' condemn the crackdown on students by the JNU Administration which has, in the pretext of the Delhi High Court's communal verdict, suspended Anoop and issued show cause notice to Anand, Abhay and Kusum. The Delhi High Court and the JNU Administration had swiftly taken action against these students on just for debating on the availability of beef and pork in JNU. The food festival that the students were debating about was banned before the date of the festival could be announced. The media, which is communal and casteist to its core created a communal frenzy. It presented distorted facts regarding the Beef & Pork Issue in JNU. Through our pamphlet we condemn media's role in sensationalizing the whole issue.
