The performance was a part of the model UN competition during which students of the University were assigned different countries that they had to represent on stage.

However, the Indian representation was allegedly stopped following an uproar created by the audience present who were reportedly angered with the presentation.

Meanwhile in India, Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is taking the form of a mass movement and people from all walks of life and from every section of the society are participating in the initiative to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of independence.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged people of the country to put the Tricolour as profile pictures on their social media accounts from August 2.
