“Is this a circular or an order of Tughlaqi?” Has Hindu Vishwavidyalaya of Kashi started following the path of Jihadi Jamia? Jihadis oppose Holi in Mosque. Playing music is completely banned in Kashi and its Shiksha Mandir? Holi is not just a festival, it is also a mantra for social harmony across the world,” Bansal tweeted.
Meanwhile, after withdrawing the order banning Holi on the university campus, the BHU principal added that only three places on the campus — the hospital, the new Vishwanath temple and the roads — are public places. The earlier order banning Holi celebrations was applicable only to these three places.
“Students are playing Holi in the campus. There is no problem with this and so far we have not received any complaint from any student. Kashi’s Holi is world famous, so it is unimaginable not to have Holi celebrations in the university campus,” said a proctor, adding that the earlier order was misinterpreted.
