What Can Teach Patriotism To JNU Students? A Battle Tank, Of Course!

Updated on 11 July, 2016 at 12:43 pm By

Ex-servicemen, who recently took out a rally against the JNU row, are learnt to have placed before JNU Vice Chancellor M. Jagdhish Kumar this proposal.

They claim that a battle tank will help in instilling a sense of nationalism in students.

Just hours before the arrest of Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, the ex-servicemen, including Major General (Retd) G.D. Bakshi, had another suggestion:

JNU should also have a wall of fame for its alumni from the three armed forces who die while serving the nation.

That such a suggestion was indeed made was corroborated by the JNU Registrar Bhupinder Zutshi who told reporters on Tuesday that the elite University “will consider them to give the students a feeling of pride for nation and patriotism.”

Lieutenant General (Retd) Niranjan Singh Malik reportedly told the VC that communication between army officers and students of the University should be encouraged.

Maj Gen Bakshi said that if any part of India is cut off, be it Kashmir or Manipur, it will be the country that’ll bleed.

The decorated army officer had very recently shaken the conscience of the country when he broke down on Times Now while arguing with those opposed to the compulsory hoisting of the tricolour in Central Universities.

Subramanian Swamy had last year demanded a BSF camp inside the JNU for the very same reason.

 


While voices will obviously question the need for such a display of patriotism, one ex-serviceman rightly said, “Terrorism does not begin with guns but with polluted thoughts and such events on universities are not about freedom of expression but planned controversies.”
