Posters inviting students to gather for a protest march against “judicial killing of Afzal Guru” and in solidarity with “struggle” of Kashmiri migrants, at varsity’s Sabarmati dhaba, were pasted at the campus.

The students allegedly shouted slogans hailing ‘Shaeed Afzal Guru’ and also chanted anti-India slogans. Several students also raised anti-national slogans like ‘Kitne Afzal Guru maroge, har ghar me paida hoga ek Afzal’ and ‘Bharat ke tukde honge hazar’.

A complaint was  filed against it by Bharatiya Janata Party MP Maheish Girri and RSS student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad.

Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said an FIR under Section 124-A of IPC (sedition) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) has been registered against unknown persons at Vasant Kunj (North) Police station. He said the police are examining the video footage of the event for further action.

Taking a serious note of  it, the home minister Rajnath Singh has instructed the police to take strict action.

 

 

Education minister Smriti Irani said, “The nation can never tolerate any insult to mother India.”

However, a statement released by JNUSU said, “At the outset, we condemn the divisive slogans (‘bharat ke tukde honge hazar’) that were raised by some people on that day. It is important to note that the slogans were not raised by members of Left organizations or JNU students.”

It added: “In fact, when such sloganeering took place, it was the Left-progressive organizations and students, including JNUSU office-bearers who asked the organizers of the programme to ask the people who were raising the slogans to stop slogans that are regressive.”

The controversial event ‘The country without a post office’ was organised to mark the execution of Afzal Guru.

Though it was said to be a cultural event comprising of an exhibition, the varsity claims they cancelled the permission for it.
