Poems are not restricted by borders or even language and claimed by those who need new words, said Saleema Hashmi.
An INSPIRING faculty expressed objection to a few lines of the poem and even filed a complaint with the administration of the institute, saying it 'assaulted Hindu belief'.
Two students, who were present at the protest site, confirmed to Outlook that the poem was recited only to keep the crowd engaged while another group negotiated with authorities who claimed Section 144 of the Indian Penal Code was in place.
It is the last line that has turned into a bone of contention. Translated into English, it means, 'When thrones will vanish, only Allah's name will remain'.
