“It’s just five minutes of a bad dream in my life. Then I woke up. I want to leave the incident behind in the back of my mind, said A L Hassan Raza, who was assaulted by three unidentified persons inside the room no 210 of C V Raman Hostel in the Pondicherry University.
Raza, who was still in a shock, told Express that the two years he spent at the University had been memorable and fruitful, as he passed out of the MA course with ‘A’ Grade.
“I was happy for the last two years and studied well to achieve this. I cannot remember any incident, which could have caused enmity towards me. I just want to dismiss the ‘five minutes’ (the duration of the attack) as a bad dream during my stay here,” he said.
Raza said that during his stay here he tried to develop contacts and friendly relations with people in the area. “I believe that more people-to-people contact between Pakistan and
India should happen despite the myth of enmity that is portrayed to exist between our countries,” he said.
Raza has deferred his decision to leave for Delhi and then to his native place in Pakistan to help the investigation in the assault complaint. Raza said he would remain here as long as investigation officials wanted and that he would be ready to return if they wanted his presence at a later point of time.
Raza said that the Pakistan High Commission in Delhi had been informed about the incident and that they were also were in touch with the officials here.
