• Professor, He is Our Professor

    Statement in solidarity with Professor Hany Babu

    September 11, 2019

    We, the undersigned students, express our outrage upon learning that his house has been searched by the police in connection to his alleged involvement in the Elgar Parishad-Bhima Koregaon case which the Pune police are investigating.

    While we feel that the law must take its own course, we also make it clear that these surprise searches without warrants are illegal and amount to extreme harassment. It is incumbent upon legal institutions to oppose such arbitrary raids and prevent/oppose the misuse of inherently dangerous laws such as the UAPA. The Pune police has, in the past, arrested five human rights activists, and have tried to arrest other human rights activists but were prevented from doing so after the Supreme Court stepped in. Since then, the Bombay High Court has released Dr Anand Teltumbde after his arrest by the Pune police in connection with the same case. The same court also extended Gautam Navlakha’s period of protection from arrest after it found no substantial evidence against him. The good judgement of our honourable courts suggests that this case is nothing but an example of prolonged intimidation and harassment by the Pune police, and, by extension, the current government in power, to silence activists, professors and other citizens who support human rights in this country.

    Keeping this in mind, we also offer our support to Professor Hany Babu and express our confidence in him. Hany Babu, among many other professional duties, teaches an M Phil course on language policy and linguistic debates. In one of his classes, he had shared the 2015 Chennai Declaration of Linguistic Rights with us. Here are some excerpts from the document:

    Considering that the current language policies of the Union Government of India are detrimental to the very survival and development of languages spoken by various communities in the Indian Union,

    Considering that in the name of development, English is given over-emphasis and the all pervasive and increasing phenomenon of English dominating every aspect of our lives and replacing all the languages in the Indian Union in the public and private spaces, thus restricting our linguistic, cultural and economic choices;


    All languages in the Indian Union are considered to be equal and each language community has the right to conserve, develop and empower their languages in all possible ways and means in a democratic milieu.

    Given how much Hany Babu cares for language equality and the inalienable right of every language in the Union of India to advance, it is indeed shocking that the Indian state has harassed such an individual. Teaching in an English department, Hany Babu also understood the immense power the English language carried with itself, and helped many of us understand the inevitable exclusions the English language makes possible. Hany Babu’s demand for language equality is allied to his demand for breaking caste exclusions in how knowledge is organised, as his article published in The Economic and Political Weekly testifies. Apart from being a teacher at DU, Hany Babu is also part of the Alliance for Social Justice, a forum for opposing caste discrimination in the university. We feel the Indian state should recognise the importance of the work that he does towards the creation of an equitable society as both an academic and an activist. If any student, or a teacher for that matter, faced any form of discrimination, they knew that Hany Babu’s door was always open for them. As students we do not merely learn from him as a teacher, but are also inspired by his political work.

    And just as Hany Babu taught us to care for language rights, we demand that the Indian state accord him the dignity to live with his inalienable rights as a citizen of India. Even if the Indian state fails to keep its promise, we take this opportunity to offer our solidarity to Hany Babu, who is not just a citizen of India (a mere official status given by the sovereign state), but also our professor. We offer our support, our solidarity, our love to our Professor.

    Soumyabrata Choudhury, writing of another professor, Professor Saitya Brata Das (who was denied a promotion at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) — one among many attacks the university has faced since the current government came to power), asked in his essay, who is a professor?

    …the true professor begins to exist only when we have freed her from all measurable accomplishments, all quantifiable evidence, from everything that can equally be manipulated and falsified. In fact, the professor has discreetly withdrawn from the spectacle, while those sitting masterfully in the audience presume to judge the “performance” as to whether it is worthy of what they call a professor. Like all presumptive people, they are wrong to think they can sit in judgement merely because they have the so-called institutional authority to do so. The professor’s existence is often too discreet for the discretionary authority of the judges to capture. So, while the vice chancellor of JNU misses the honour of presenting Das with a professorship, we are honoured to read his work and learn from him – and to greet him in admiration, gratitude, and camaraderie: “Professor!

    Just as the then Vice Chancellor of JNU had missed the honour of presenting Das with professorship, the police, in harassing Hany Babu, has lost its opportunity to understand the true worth of the person whom they suspect of a crime.

    And it is only imperative now that we, Hany Babu’s students, “greet him in admiration, gratitude, and camaraderie” and proudly proclaim to the world, “Professor!, he is our Professor!”

    Through this statement we strengthen our resolve to support him and the work he does as a teacher-organiser towards an equitable society.

    In solidarity,
