Professor's 'anti-Muslim' comments upset Jamia Millia Islamia students
The incident has led to anger among students on the campus. The teacher, Prof PK Basu's outburst against Muslims and the communal comments stunned the students.
His ire was also directed at the Muslim students in the class. He even told a Muslim girl who was wearing veil as 'you blackhead', comment which left the students shell-shocked.
Basu further said that the dress (burqa) had been banned in other countries. Though students initially remained calm, they got upset when his tirade against Islam and Muslims continued. It is alleged that Basu used words like illiterate, idiot and stupid against the students.
Prof Basu also said that he had little regard for the faculty at the educational institution. Later students made a formal complaint to the university authorities regarding the hateful comments in the classroom. They have demanded that the professor be sacked. The Delhi-based JMI, which is a minority institution, is one of the leading universities in the country.
