The Ambedkar Periyar Phule Study Circle (APPSC) has accused the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay of allowing the organization of a 'Shobha Yatra' on campus, despite the institute's administration denying permission. The APPSC claims that students received an official invitation for the event and accused the administration of peddling lies. The 'Shobha Yatra,' scheduled for the next day, involves a procession featuring children dressed as characters from the Ramayan, accompanied by traditional instruments. The APPSC also pointed out a banner announcing a series of events, including the 'Shobha Yatra' and a 'Deepotsav,' leading up to the main event of the Consecration of Lord Ram idol at Ayodhya Temple on Monday. The IIT Bombay administration has stated that these events are not official, and no permission has been granted, according to the APPSC. The student body also criticized IIT Bombay's recent interim guidelines, emphasizing the institute's commitment to remain apolitical and its use to censor academic talks and gatherings on campus.
