IIT Madras punishes Students for inciting hate towards Modi Govt

Chennai, May 29: The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras has taken action against a students study group over an anonymous complaint to the Central government that it was trying to "spread hatred" towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi by distributing provocative pamphlets and posters on the campus.The students group has, however, denied allegations.

In a letter to the IIT-Madras director on May 15, the Union Human Resource Development Ministry had cited an anonymous letter alleging serious complaints received from students. The evidence was enclosed- a pamphlet of the study circle highlighting a speech by academician R Vivekananda Gopal criticising the Modi government.

After receiving the ministry letter, the Dean, M Srinivasan, reportedly wrote a stern letter to the study circle accusing it of "misuse of privileges". The Ambedkar Periyar Study Circle has been told that it can not use the auditorium, the IIT email and the institute notice board.
