The controversy started around 9 pm on Friday night at the campus of CT Institute on the outskirts of Jalandhar city when a Hindu student from Jammu studying here posted a post on social media in favor of former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma.

Muslim students apologize to the student
These Muslim students, living in hostels built inside the institute campus, gathered on the road at night and started shouting slogans. These people surrounded the area where the Hindu student was living. The dispute which started at 12 pm continued till 5 am. Sensing the urgency of the occasion, the Hindu students had to hide for their safety.
After several hours of uproar, Muslim students called the Hindu student in front of them and forcibly apologized to her and got the post deleted on social media. Not only this, the police and the institute management who reached the spot also blamed the said Hindu girl student in this entire dispute.
PRO’s claim – the matter was resolved in two hours

CT Institute in headlines for the second time
This is the second time that CT Institute has come in limelight. About 4 years ago, the Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir Police had arrested three terrorists belonging to Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind (AGH), a Kashmiri terrorist organization linked to Al Qaeda, from the hostel of the same institute. All three were running sleeper cells here for three years.
