In the meeting the proposed new curriculum was also sent back to the concerned departments.

The decision was seen as an rollback after the university faced a backlash from students and members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad who reached the meeting venue and started protesting against the "inclusion of false facts related to Hindu religion".

ABVP demanded the removal of "objectionable" portions from the course in the syllabus of some DU departments, protesting against the inclusion of "false facts" relating to Hinduism.
