'Harmony over hate': IIT-Madras students to celebrate secularism at event
A section of IIT-Madras students have announced an event to celebrate constitutional values and upholding secularism

A section of IIT-Madras students have announced an event to celebrate constitutional values and upholding secularism Thursday commemorating the death anniversary of B R Ambedkar and demolition of Babri Masjid.

Jointly organised by Ambedkar Periyar Study Circle (APSC) and ChintaBar, both independent student bodies recognised by the institute, the event includes cultural programmes and speeches by students, a student associated with APSC told PTI.

"There is spread of hate politics in the country and as a student community we want harmony over hatred. Tomorrow is the best way to express ourselves," the student said.

A poster issued by the students said, "Resist the politics of hate. Celebrating constitutional values and upholding secularism. A cultural evening commemorating Ambedkar's death anniversary."

Last year, Ambedkar's texts were read out by students on the campus to commemorate his death anniversary.
