special restrictions proposed by the TSR Subramanian panel: Colleges and universities should consider derecognising student groups based “explicitly on caste and religion” (SourceL Express Photo by Tashi Tobgyal/ File) Top News A government panel with the mandate to make suggestions for the new national education policy has frowned upon political activity on campus Among the special restrictions proposed by the TSR Subramanian panel: Colleges and universities should consider derecognising student groups based “explicitly on caste and religion” Echoing the disdain and discomfort visible in the ruling dispensation with regard to campus politics — except of course that of the ABVP — the committee has expressed concern that “agitations disturbances gheraos and other disruptive movements are being increasingly witnessed on campuses” which it thinks is interfering with “normal academic activities” These recommendations are ill-thought through if not downright anti-democratic Historically campuses have been crucibles of leadership College and university students are active citizens with voting rights to general assembly and local body elections It is absurd and even undesirable to expect them to be immune to and insulated from political ideas and debates Equally the political behaviour and modes and language of organising of students are likely to be influenced by the political activity outside the campus The fact is caste and religion are markers of political identity in India and parties covertly and overtly mobilise around them What is often labelled “casteist” politics has provided valuable space for the expression and assertion of interests of historically disprivileged groups In its best version campus politics is a platform for questioning congealed inequalities and prejudices and a force for greater social inclusion In fact the absence of debate and agitation over larger social and political issues on campus in an argumentative democracy ought to be viewed as abnormal The panel’s report comes in the background of a season of unrest on campuses and a government that has revealed itself to be all too often heavy-handed and authoritarian in the face of difference and dissent From Hyderabad Central University (HCU) to FTII Pune and JNU students have been agitating on issues ranging from campus autonomy to standards of academic excellence FTII students have protested Gajendra Chauhan’s appointment because they believe he lacks the professional credentials to occupy the post and his choice has been motivated by political considerations Issues of social inclusion and the right to freedom of expression are at the heart of protests at JNU and HCU These protests have echoed and triggered important debates in society — on the freedom of expression and its limits on what constitutes nationalism This is not exceptional For instance campuses were active arenas of politics and resistance during the Emergency — leaders like Lalu Prasad Nitish Kumar Arun Jaitley Venkaiah Naidu and Sitaram Yechury are products of student politics of this era It is the irony of history that some of these leaders now want universities to be sanitised of politics For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by MRINAL PANDE | Published: May 1 2013 1:01 am Related News Can pornography be given free play when the state remains an integral expression of male power There are many things we need to know that we wish we did not have to The existence of domestic violence against women and children is one of them The use of pornography as a tool for learning and justifying such brutal behaviouris another We have lived in denial of links between the two for too longdespite ample evidence that patterns of abusive sexual dominance are often first picked up by males at home and then honed through viewing porn that furthers the idea of the inferiority of all females Recent cases of gangrape also verify what feminists and criminologists have been saying for a long time: violent abusers of young women and female children are mostly repeat offendersand known area bullies Such men will become even more prone to abusive predatory behaviour after bouts of heavy drinking and collective viewing of pornographic material with similarly inclined male friends Despite thisthe moment the issue of banning pornography or regulating the sale of alcohol comes uploud protests eruptciting the constitutional right to earning a livelihood and the basic freedom of speech and expression Thinkfor a minutethat material containing propaganda justifying the killing or torture of specific groups on the basis of caste or creed were made freely available Would we not become outragedknowing that such propaganda precedes and justifies casteist and ethnic violence Whythenshould the easy availability of pornographic material depicting the grossest forms of violence against women and childrenremain an exceptionand Article 19(1) be invoked for its continuance Even in a liberal statecan pornography be given free playeven when it comes at the cost of the free speech of women victims whoas it isdo not have full freedom of speech within homes Liberal theoreticians of both sexes are so confused by the din of the erotic versus obscene debate that they mostly refrain from delving into how pornography capitalises on the tacit approval for male freedom of speech by the same state and the civil society that say they can book offenders only if the victims speak up Even those outraged by the police dragging its feet and demanding better safety and policing of streetsended up looking schizoid as they asked for dramatically swift state intervention and gory reprisals against the guilty on behalf of the sexually abused women and childrenquite forgetting that they had found the state so useless that they wanted all leaders to resign The stateas victims of sexual violence encounter it first handis not a free floating reality It has a clear face and voice: that of the SHO who tries to bribe a child victims father and buy his silencethat of an ACP who slaps a young female protesteran MP who looks upon the anger of women protesters dismissivelycalling them a bunch of dented and painted females With such movers and shakerscan even a vociferous demand for positive state intervention tilt the scales of justice in favour of women and children Can the battered victims and their families be coaxed into believing that the state as it ismust be viewed as a primary tool of their empowerment It is true that gender is first the construct of a social systembut in a country like oursit has a long history that predates democracy There are many who still seek to explain the upswing in rapes as linked to the wide dissemination of pornographic material to new technology They like to remind us that we were a much kindersafer society just a century agobefore the birth of the present day Westernised system But they are wrong Burning up TV sets or shops selling DVDs will not help Violent and abusive behaviour against the weakwomen and children in particularhas had a long history in India Less than a century and a half agonotorious gangs of thugs roamed our unsafe highwaysunwanted widows were routinely being sent away when not being burnt on pyreschildren from poor families were

howearlierin large joint familiesyoung girls and indigent widows felt the spectre of molestation by some male relative or family friend hanging over their heads Some girls were saved from predatory family males by their prudent and watchful motherssome were not But all of themwhen they reported sexual abuse to mothers or family elderswere forced to hold their tongues for fear of family reprisals and a social stigmatising that would render the victim as unmarriageable commodity Fact issince male dominance over women remains basically sexualeven in a democratic set-uprape and porn are not deviant phenomenabut only one extreme example of the way in which men will use women and simultaneously show them their true place within a state they control and have moulded in their image Since the modern Indian state is founded on male powermale dominance over women is clearly visible sociallyeconomically and politically Since nothing is gender neutral in Indiaand the state remains an integral

done well to speak out against the ban on cattle slaughter and imposition of prohibition by certain state governments in the past one year Such policies the chairman of the $4 billion-plus Godrej Group has rightly pointed out have contributed to an overall environment of negativity deflecting and diverting attention away from the economy and the larger development agenda that governments are elected to implement The cattle slaughter ban legislation passed by Maharashtra and Haryana last year clearly targeted a community many of whose members are engaged in the beef trade Moreover the ban on consumption of beef and slaughter of even non-milking cows male calves bulls or bullocks has hurtfarmers In times of drought especially of the scale that Maharashtra has witnessed for two years now farmers find it difficult to maintain cattle By killing the market for such animals — which is what cattle traders and abattoir owners essentially provided — the BJP-led government has only added to the woes of farmers in Maharashtra To the extent that the demand for prohibition is seen to come mainly from women of less privileged backgrounds who are often victims of alcohol-related violence it can even be seen as serving a legitimate public good But the arguments against prohibition are compelling They range from those that question it for offering a “moral” solution to a public health problem and as an encroachment by the state on individual freedoms to those that point out that it is ineffective and counter-productive An outright ban on consumption and trade in liquor can indeed lead to worse results from the entire business going underground If the end result is the emergence of a new police-administration-criminal nexus along with smuggling from across the border and sale of spurious liquor the damage to public interest may be more than collateral Also the desperately addicted may still get their liquor albeit at a higher price and consuming a larger share of household income Finally there is the issue of revenue Last year states together grossed over Rs 100000 crore from alcohol That includes Rs 4000 crore for Bihar (which under Nitish Kumar has already imposed prohibition) and Rs 8000 crore for Tamil Nadu (where virtually every party has promised it in the current assembly elections) The revenue foregone would obviously have to be compensated through higher taxes including on essential goods and services Again that leaves families worse off than before Godrej’s forthright observations should be viewed as a call for restoring sobriety in public policymaking This is as much about bringing the focus back on governance and development as it is about avoiding actions that ultimately serve to only divide the people or to create new problems in the guise of solving the old For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News
