According to an Arab News report, Rabia said that as soon as she entered the auditorium, security in the hall after the arrival of the Indian President told her to exit. He said that I was not compelled to go out of the hall but I know why this attitude was kept with me, it could be because I opposed the citizenship amendment law and on this matter was also involved in the protest. Rabia said that trying to stop them in convocation is an insult to all the people of India who are currently struggling.
