Hundreds of academics, students and activists came out in support of a Cambridge scholar who was denied permanent residency in the UK for spending too much time in India. Dr Asiya Islam's application for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) was refused by the UK Home Office as she was in New Delhi for fieldwork and research. The student activists signed an open letter to persuade the UK Home Office to reconsider its decision.
