National Women's Front strongly condemns the banning of Ambedkar - Periyar Study Circle (APSC) by IIT-Madras. The ban, as directed by Ministry of Human Resource Department after receiving an anonymous complaint and without any further enquiry by IIT-M is authoritarian and totally unacceptable. It is absurd what happened in the institution where student circles are not allowed to express their views in a democratic country like India. Every citizen has the right to express their social, economic and political views.
National Women's Front strongly demands that the ban on APSC should be called off immediately and ensures that there is no similar activity of demolishing of rational thoughts and democratic values in future in any of the educational institutions in India.
