India as ‘jail of different nationalities’


New controversial posters have surfaced in Delhi’s prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus in which India has been termed as a ‘jail of different nationalities’.

The controversial posters have come up in support of Jammu and Kashmir’s right for self-determination. The death of Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula has also been condemned in the poster.

According to sources, Delhi Police is interrogating a photostate shop owner from Ber Sarai from where the posters were suspected to have been photocopied. The cops are interrogating four students of JNU from Ber Sarai.

On February 9, an event was organised at JNU campus by some students that lead to the arrest of Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, Rama Naga and Anirban Bhattacharya.

A cultural evening was organised by 10 students, formerly of the Democratic Students’ Union (DSU), at the Sabarmati Dhaba, against the execution of Afzal Guru and separatist leader Maqbool Bhat, and for Kashmir’s right to self-determination. Afzal Guru was hanged on February 9, 2013 for his role in the 2001 attack on parliament.

Anti-India slogans like “Kashmir ki azadi tak jung chalegi, Bharat ki barbadi tak jung chalegi” were reportedly raised at the protest meet
