India: disabled Muslim student leader hospitalised by Hindu extremists
A disabled, Indian Muslim student leader was evicted from his student dorm this week and knocked unconscious by Hindu extremist activists. Farooque Alam, a PhD student who suffers from cerebral palsy, described the ordeal as 'deeply traumatic' and believes he was evicted for his student activism and religion. A group of students from ABVP, the student wing of Hindu nationalist paramilitary the RSS, colluded with university wardens to evict Farroque from his hostel.
