DU gelds political beliefs of Sri Aurobindo

Paper on Aurobindo missing from DU syllabus - Hindustan Times

After much hue-and-cry about the removal of AK Ramanujan’s essay, 300 Ramayanas, from the concurrent course list last month, a course went missing from the approved syllabus for political science at Delhi University (DU). The paper on the political beliefs and workings of nationalist freedom fighter Aurobindo Ghosh, who later set up the Aurobindo Ashram, was approved by the Committee of Courses when it deliberated upon the semester course earlier in the year.
But when the final course came up for approval before the Academic Council — the highest decision-making body in the university — the course was found missing from the list.
