KOZHIKODE: After 24-hour research protest by scholars and one-hour extra working protest by staff against former VC, Calicut University is witnessing a similar one. SFI on Monday started a three-day Varsity Prathirodham Theerkkunu protest on the campus against what they described as the growing fascism with talks, discussions, documentary screening, poster making, beef dance and dramas. SFI campus unit secretary Ajay Ghosh R. said they were aimed at creating awareness among the community against the fascist acts like the recent lynching by cow vigilantes.

“More impact would be there when we do it in a different way, unlike public speeches and marches. Instead of one-sided talk, we should engage in dialogues,” he told DC. Many personalities from academic, political and cultural fields visited the venue and addressed them. On Monday, Anil Kumar Theruvath, B Arundhathi, Jamsheed Ali and Rovith Kuttoth took part in discussions on cow vigilantism. SFI president V. P. Sanu addressed them on the issue.

 

Two documentaries ‘Holy Cow’ and ‘Cast on the Menu Card’ will be screened on Wednesday, besides staging a "beef dance" wearing the mask of buffalo and a drama and a talk by Dr T. V. Madhu. The poems wrote against fascism by the students will recited during the function on Wednesday along with artists painting on the 'canvas of resistance' set up at the venue.
