The session on ‘Why Ram Mandir in Ayodhya?’ was slated to begin at 9.30pm on December 6 but was cancelled by university authorities in what is being described as a unanimous decision. 


"The competent authority has decided that no talk will take place at Koyna Hostel, JNU ON 6/12/2017. Hence the talk entitled, "Why Ram Mandir in Ayodhya" which was going to take place in Koyna Hostel has been cancelled," read the official letter of cancellation tweeted by a user. 


The letter was signed by the senior warden of Koyna Hostel. No explanation has been given so far for the cancellation.
