Hindutva activists enter JNU campus
New Delhi: The students and faculty members of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) were in for a shock on Wednesday morning as scores of Hindutva activists thronged the varsity and took out a rally on the campus.
Waiving saffron flags, the activists shouted pro-temple slogans such as "Ram Lalla aayenge, mandir bhavya banayenge" (Ram will come, grand temple will be built) as the loud speakers fitted on vehicles blared bhajans. "The procession comprising cars, two-wheelers and open trucks took a round of the campus and sought support for the upcoming VHP event, "Dharam Sansad" (congregation of Hindu priests), at the Ramlila Ground in the national capital on December 9," said a source.
Hitting out at the varsity administration, N Sai Balaji, JNU students' union president said that he has filed a complaint against unknown Hindutva activists, to VC. Balaji also said, "How did they enter from the Saraswatipuram gate? The security office claims that it is unaware of the incident but it's just not possible without the connivance of varsity administration," student leader rued.
"A group of outsiders in trucks, cars and motorcycles illegally entered JNU campus forcing themselves through Saraswatipuram gate between 9 am to 10 am," the complaint filed by the students' body read, asking, "How can a mob throng a university and spew communal venom to vitiate it's peaceful atmosphere," said a
