New Delhi, Dec 06 (ANI): Jawaharlal Nehru University on Wednesday cancelled all the scheduled talks on Babri Masjid after the authorities told organisers to scrap the one by Bharatiya Janata Party senior leader Subramanian Swamy. The BJP leader was supposed to talk at the Koyna Hostel on "Why Ram Mandir in Ayodhya?" and later the university did not furnish any specific reason for cancelling Swamy's event. The seminar was organised by Vivekananda Vichar Manch and was retracted by the university without prior notice. One of the members of the organizing committee, Prachi said that cancelling such events cannot sustain communal harmony and cannot be considered as a solution. She further condemned the revoking of both the events, one organised supposedly by the left-leaning students and the other by the right leaning group. However, a member of ABVP, Nikunj said that the event organised by students belonging to the left and the ones, part of BAPSA (Birsa Ambedkar Phule Student’s Assocation) was not cancelled.
