Deepa Nisanth had supported SFI’s beef festival and posted a comment on Facebook
The management of a leading governmentaided college, which suspended six students for allegedly conducting a ‘beef festival’ on the campus, on Tuesday sought explanation from a woman lecturer who had supported the students’ action on social media.
In her Facebook post, Deepa Nisanth, a faculty of the college, had supported the ‘beef festival’ organised by SFI activists on October 1 to protest against the lynching of a man in Uttar Pradesh over rumours of eating beef.
Though she later withdrew the post, in which she supported the ‘beef fest’ and condemned the action of the college manage- ment against students, it had gone viral on the social media.
Cochin Devaswom Board, an autonomous organisation which manages the Sree Kerala Varma College, asked the college principal to submit a report on the issue.
College principal C.M. Latha said an explanation was sought from the lecturer in this regard.
