Exposing the fake DSSW Students' Union Press Release on Mr. Kapil Mishra

University of Delhi’s Department of Social Work, popularly known as Delhi School of Social Work (DSSW) is one of the premier institutions in the country for social work education. The institute has produced many students of eminence and its alumni are working in various governmental and non-governmental organisations. But recently, a fake unilateral and disparaging statement was issued by the Students’ Union President regarding one of its own illustrious alumnus Mr. Kapil Mishra, who is not just a social activist par excellence but a Delhi politician with notable credentials. The DSSWSU President acted in a highly unprofessional and extrajudicial manner by displaying intolerance against Mr. Kapil Mishra who sought to vacate some roads for the public in Delhi which were blocked by the Anti-CAA protesters just before the scheduled visit of the President of United States of America to the national capital. It selectively maligned Mr. Kapil Mishra under an agenda and possibly under the pressure of some politicians of the rival political parties and to please some of its masters inside or outside the university.

The false statement issued in the name of the Students’ Union against this alumnus of DSSW, was not just malicious but selective, partisan and out of intolerance, frustration and hatred for a particular political ideology that Mr. Kapil Mishra adheres to. It was a brazen and a shameless attempt done under a motivated and opinionated campaign to selectively smear the image of a highly vocal and daring alumnus such as Mr. Kapil Mishra.

The most conspicuous and disturbing thing is that the entire chorus against Kapil Mishra was created by the President of the Students’ Union of DSSW in the name of Students’ Union without even the consent of the Union, as is evident in a later post released by him wherein, he has confessed that the previously released statement on the Students’ Union letter pad was his personal opinion and not the opinion of the DSSW or its Students Union. This proves how the present Students’ Union President has deliberately misused the letterhead of DSSW Students’ Union and the name of this prestigious Social Work Institution of India   to further the agenda of his masters having political motives.

This behaviour is irresponsible and defamatory and subject to criminal proceedings after a high level of enquiry by the appropriate authorities. Strict action should be taken against the person concerned for misleading the entire country by releasing a completely illegal, unauthorised and false document to different Print, Electronic, Web and Social Media. He should be asked to resign, else removed as President of the DSSWSU forthwith as his allegiance is not with the institution, but his political masters.

India is not a Banana Republic but a country which has a strong Judicial system.  By issuing a diktat of this nature against Mr. Kapil Mishra, he has behaved as a Kangaroo court unto himself, completely ignoring the democratic spirit of the country and robustness of its judicial systems. The Students’ Union President, his mentors by doing what they did, have not only undermined the Judiciary but also displayed their pettiness of thought and conduct. It is highly atrocious that the President declared on his own accords that Mr.  Kapil Mishra does not deserve to be a DSSW Alumni even as no Court of law has found him guilty on this account. The attempt was a cheap stunt for gaining publicity through targeting an outstanding alumnus such as Mr. Kapil Mishra.  

We the Alumni and former Professors of DSSW, eminent Professors of Social Work Institutions, Social Workers from different parts of India condemn this patently illegal and false and unilateral Statement issued by the President on behalf of the Association of the students’ union of Department of social work.  We appeal all the media to let all the concerned citizens and viewers or readers to know the truth. It was outrageous that along with Mr. Kapil Mishra , the name of a reputed Social Work Institution of this nation was also maligned for personal hatred and contempt for a particular political ideology. We condemn it squarely and vehemently and demand an appropriate action against the President of DSSWSU for defamation of a public figure like Mr. Kapil Mishra and for maligning the name of Department of Social Work, University of Delhi (Delhi School of Social Work). DSSW Students’ Union or its President should exercise highest restraint and refrain from indulging in any such political move and actions in future.

Regards,

Social Work fraternity
