Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Thursday came out in support of the Muslim professor whose appointment at the Banaras Hindu University's Sanskrit department has triggered a row.

Taking to Twitter, the Congress leader defended the appointment. "Our languages and culture are our specialities, our strength," the Congress leader tweeted. "Sanskrit language has vastness. The constitution of our country has vastness. Any teacher can teach Sanskrit in a university," the Congress leader added.

BSP president Mayawati too on Thursday blamed the government for the controversy, saying education and politics of religion or caste cannot be linked.

A group of students has been opposing the appointment of Feroze Khan as an assistant professor while some backed the teacher.
