Prominent Indian Law Students Participate in the Worldwide Academic Boycott of Israel

Joining the global campus campaign to cut academic links with Israeli universities, students at India’s premier law school accuse the latter of complicity in Israel’s deadly war on Gaza and its atrocities against the Palestinian people.

A component of the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement, which was launched in 2005, is the academic boycott of Israel. Since the start of the war in October, it has gained backing from a growing number of student communities and targets Israeli universities, research institutes, and their operations.

On June 15, students in Hyderabad, a public legal school in southern India, officially joined the campaign by submitting a petition asking the NALSAR administration to sever its connections with Radzyner Law School and Tel Aviv University.

A total of 362 persons, comprising 275 students, 70 alumni, and 12 faculty members, signed the public petition.

Hamza Khan, who is finishing his degree at NALSAR this year, told Arab News that “Israeli universities such as Tel Aviv University and the Radzyner Law School have both directly and indirectly either contributed to the current onslaught in Gaza or defended its legitimacy in academic literature.”
