Historian Ramchandra Guha said on Thursday that he will not join Ahmedabad University (AU), as a newspaper reported that the private institute was under pressure from a right wing student group which is against his appointment as a visiting teacher.
"Due to circumstances beyond my control, I shall not be joining Ahmedabad University. I wish AU well; it has fine faculty and an outstanding Vice Chancellor. And may the spirit of Gandhi one day come alive once more in his native Gujarat," said Guha on Twitter.
"Or, more precisely, a biographer of Gandhi cannot teach a course on Gandhi in Gandhi’s own city," he said in reponse to a tweet.
