A group of 11 JNU teachers have alleged that “JNU has become a den of organised sex racket”.
The 200-page dossier, prepared in 2015 by eleven teachers, was recently released to a few journalists.
The Wire reports that the dossier has been submitted to the JNU administration.
The document, titled ‘Jawaharlal Nehru University: The Den of Secessionism and Terrorism’ gives insight on how a few teachers encourage a corrupt culture in JNU and are legitimising separatist movements in India.
“Over one thousand boys and girls students have been fined from Rs 2,000 to Rs 5,000 for consuming alcohol, for indulging in immoral activities in their hostels. At a casual glance at the gates of the hostel one can see hundreds of empty alcohol bottles. Sex workers have been openly employed in hostel messes, where they not only lure JNU girls into their organized racket but also pollute the boys,” Amita Singh, professor at the Centre for Law and Governance said.
“How come big and high brand cars are moving around the hostels particularly in the night hours. Some security staff is also involved in this racket. Money, sex, drugs and alcohol are tools through which freshers are being lured into this ring,” she added.
The document raised concern that some JNU academics, masquerading as liberals and feminists, have been engaged in nefarious and anti-national activities of maligning India publically through their statements, lectures, and publications.
According to assistant professor in the Special Centre for Sanskrit Studies, Hari Ram Mishra, who was part of the group which prepared the dossier, said students should be apolitical.
“If they want to enter politics, there is a huge field outside. JNU Students’ Union should be limited to campus work only. But unfortunately, here communists are preferred over meritorious students,” he said.
In this context, do you remember BJP MLA from Ramgarh in Rajasthan’s Alwar district, Gyandev Ahuja? He has alleged that everyday 10,000 cigarette butts, 3,000 used condoms, 50,000 pieces of bones, 500 used abortion injections, are found at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). However, he received a lot of flak for his comments.
Earlier, the JNU rusticated students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya for a semester and fined union leader Kanhaiya Kumar Rs 10,000, saying they disobeyed norms in organising an event where “anti-national” slogans were allegedly chanted. A probe panel set up by the JNU found them guilty of “misconduct” and “indiscipline”.
