At least three student organizations have protested the "Chhatra League attack" on a group of students in front of Bangabandhu Tower on Dhaka University campus.

Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD), Bangladesh Chhatra Odhikar Parishad and Bangladesh Chhatra Federation issued official protest notifications Wednesday night against "BCL’s attack" earlier Wednesday, calling it "heinous".

JCD’s notification — signed by its DU unit president Gonsesh Chandra Ray Sahos and general secretary Nahiduzzaman Sipon — reads: “Awami League’s student wing BCL thinks that everyone must follow the ideals of BCL and no one can oppose their ideology. That’s why they want to eradicate other ideologies by oppressing them. Such behaviour is nothing but a sign of fascism. We are protesting this heinous attack on students.”

Central President of Chhatra Odhikar Parishad, Bin Yamin Molla, and General Secretary, Ariful Islam Adeeb, also condemned the attack and issued a notification on behalf of the organisation.

“Chhatra League has created a reign of terror in the last 15 years. The latest of which is today's (yesterday) attack on a discussion about Ramadan at DU,” the notification reads.

Demanding immediate identification of the attackers and legal action against the culprits, they called upon all students across the country to stand against the "violent politics" of Chhatra League and strongly condemn such attacks.

Following the attack, students of DU's Law Department staged an immediate protest rally at the base of Raju Bhashkorjo at 5:20pm on Wednesday as all the attacked students are from the Law department’s 48 batch.
