Indian and Pakistani students at Oxford University, England Protest against War
GUWAHATI: A number of Indian and Pakistani students at Oxford University held a protest against war between the two countries amongst growing tensions after the Pulwama attack.
Approximately 100 nationals from both the countries took part in the “Indo-Pakistan Solidarity Demonstration” outside Radcliffe Camera, one of Oxford’s iconic landmarks.
The protestors held placards that read, “This is not our war,” “no to war.” They also read out anti-war poems in Bengali, Urdu, Punjabi and English and sang Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s nazm “Hum Dekhenge.”
This demonstration was organised by the 2018 class of Rhodes scholars from India and Pakistan.
