Other participants were the activist Sabika Abbas Naqvi and All India Students Association leader Shehla Rashid, “Campus elections have been empowering for me and I realised it after taking a stand….I don’t see any difference between the Naxals in rural areas and the urban ones. We encounter hundreds of Saibaba everyday in JNU,” Ojha said.

Rashid said that women who take a stand get abused irrespective of their ideology. “We must admit that we are a patriarchal, casteist and unequal society. There are issues of women that are above any ideology,” she said.

Sabika said that India has a “culture of masculine society”. “We have to de-construct the binary of left or right issues when it comes to women’s rights,” she said.
