Lucknow University advises students not to come on V-Day

Lucknow University File University of Lucknow enforces Shivratri ban on Valentines day

However, this is not the first time that such a weird advisory was issued by the Lucknow University. He referred to the "western influence" causing youngsters to celebrate February 14 as Valentine's Day.

According to local news outlet NDTV, the university issued a freaky order telling students to be seen on the campus grounds "under no circumstances" while parents and guardians were told to not send their children to college. In this connection, students are notified that the university will be closed on February 14, 2018, for "Mahashivratri", said the Lucknow University advisory, issued by proctor's office.

The students seemed unhappy and agitated over this act of moral policing and cited this as an example of "chhoti soch" or narrow-mindedness.

"You've declared a holiday, but telling students to not enter university premises isn't right at all".

"We all appeal the parents of the student not to send to sent their wards to the university".

This university has tried to trample on V-day celebrations before. A list of Dos and Don'ts was issued in 2014. "If we won't enter the university, then who will?" a student said to ANI. Students were also expected leave campus immediately after class and not "loiter on campus".

The students, however, slammed the university's "pettiness". "This is just not done".

Meanwhile, the VHP, Bajrang Dal and Shiv Sena activists have enforced a curfew at parks, malls and public places, warning boys and girls to stay away.

While the holiday has been declared in the name of Mahashivratri, the campus has been declared out of bounds for students threatening them with disciplinary action.
