VARANASI: The Faculty of Sanskrit Vidya Dharma Vigyan at Banaras Hindu University (BHU) has reopened, the university announced, after days of protests by a section of students over the appointment of a Muslim professor at the department.
"The Faculty of Sanskrit Vidya Dharma Vigyan, Banaras Hindu University, has reopened," a tweet by the university said on Thursday.
A section of students have been demonstrating against Feroze Khan's appointment at the department.
Although the BHU has backed him, Khan has been unable to take classes.
The protesters say only a Hindu can teach Sanskrit at the university in Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi.
