Anti-India slogans at JNU: HM Rajnath Singh asks Delhi Police to take strict action against anti-India elements
After Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today that a strict action will be taken against those who raised anti-India slogans at Jawaharlal Nehru University during an event to protest against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, Delhi Police arrested JNU Student's Union president, Kanhaiya Kumar. The Delhi Police had already lodged a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy in the matter.

Rajnath Singh said anyone raising anti-India slogans and questioning nation's unity and integrity won't be spared. He said that the Delhi Police Commissioner has been directed to act against those students who organised the controversial event at JNU.

Notably the even was organised by some students to protest against the hanging of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

The event also faced a huge backlash on social media as hashtag #ShutDownJNU trended on Facbook and Twitter. Social media users demanded strict action against those who were involved in such anti-India activity.

During the event called, "A country without post office" participants raised anti-India slogans. Based on a complaint by ABVP and East Delhi BJP MP Maheish Girri, the police filed a case yesterday after examining the video footage of the event.

JUN administration while speaking on the matter said that no permission was given to the event organisers. The university also called it an act of indiscipline and said that an inquiry by proctor will also be done.
