Row over BHUs Sanskrit professor fails to die down

The appointment of a Muslim scholar Dr Firoze Khan as assistant professor in Sanskrit Vidya Dharma Vigyan (SVDV) of the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) has led to pro and anti-protests from the students over his religious identity. The right wing supported students claimed that his appointment violates the sanctity of their rich religious sacraments, traditions and values. []
