DMK condemns MS University’s decision to remove Arundhati Roy’s book – Times of India


CHENNAI: The DMK on Thursday condemned the decision of the Tirunelveli based Manonmaniam Sundaranar University to withdraw Arundhati Roy’s book ‘Walking With The Comrades’ from its syllabus.

The University withdrew the book on a complaint by the BJP’s student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) that the book supports violence and Maoists.

In a statement issued here, DMK’s Deputy General Secretary A.Raja said it is for the Vice Chancellor, professors and education experts to decide as to what should be included as the syllabus.

He said the book was there for three years and has been removed after a complaint by the ABVP.

He said, “In post graduate courses, students are given a chance to read history and literature, and the students will take what is needed and leave out what is not needed”.

Raja said in order to make education saffron coloured, the University has removed the book which is condemnable.

The book ‘Walking With The Comrades’ is based on Roy’s visit to the Maoist camps.

The Manonmaniam Sundaranar University has replaced Roy’s book with ‘My Native Land: Essays on Nature’ by M.Krishnan.
