Kochi: In a bid to express solidarity to the Shaheen Bagh protesters, All India Students’ Federation (AISF) unit of Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit has come forth by releasing a magazine titled ‘Shaheen Bagh’.
The University has witnessed several protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act, by the faculty and the students.
They claim that the four-page-long newsletter is a tribute to the women protesters of Delhi, especially Muslim women who usually don’t indulge in protests but this time they have come ahead to protest against CAA and NRC.
“Usually, we see women, especially Muslim women take a backseat during protests. However, that wasn’t the case in the anti-NRC-CAA protests. The women were in the forefront. This is our tribute to them,” said Sahad A A, the magazine’s editor.
“We’re trying to uphold the spirit of secularism through this initiative,” he added.
The magazine also include articles by the students of CUSAT and MES College, Ponnani. The editorial has printed 2,500 copies of ‘Shaheen Bagh’ until now.
“The students worked really hard towards bringing this out. The magazine’s editor-n-chief Sadique N even travelled to Thiruvananthapuram to interview the State Secretary of CPI,” he further said.
