Hyderabad: With a view to ensure peace on Osmania University campus following plans of different student organisations to organise "beef and other festivals", Hyderabad Police on Friday said it will not permit any festivities on the campus.
"In order to maintain peace and tranquillity on the campus, with regard to proposed festivities in the Osmania University campus in the next 8 days, it is decided not to permit celebration of any festivities on the campus by any students/organisations/groups," Deputy Commissioner of Police (East Zone) A Ravinder said.
The members of the student community and others are requested to cooperate in this regard, the DCP said, adding all possible steps would be taken to maintain peace and tranquillity on the Osmania University campus.
While leftist students' organisations had declared that they would hold a 'beef festival' on 10 December in the campus, coinciding with the World Human Rights Day, another group of students had announced plans to organise a 'pork festival' in the university campus on the same day, setting the stage for a confrontation.
BJP MLA Raja Singh had said that he would stop the proposed 'beef festival' and had given a call for 'Chalo University' on that day even as OU authorities had earlier said that activities such as 'beef festival' and 'gau (cow) puja', which are not related to academics and research, will not be permitted on the campus.
