JNU and Indian left
Bharat ke hazaar tukde honge Insha Allah! Insha Allah!(India will be broken into 1,000 parts),Tum jitne Afzal maaroge, Har ghar se Afzal niklega (The more Afzals you kill, the more will be born from every house). For a while, with chanting of these slogans one would think that it is from a rally of Hafiz Saeed in the heart of Lahore or a jihadi motivation camp of ISI at its Rawalpindi headquarter, but unfortunately it is in the middle of India's premier institution, Jawaharlal Nehru University. On the name of freedom of expression, a section of students with the active support of all the left organisations of JNU were chanting these anti-India, secessionist slogans on the night of 9th February 2016.

But we need to evaluate the motives, tendencies and origins of all these ideas in India. In 1940,the student wing of Communist party of India merged with the student wing of Muslim league in Aligarh Muslim University. In 1945, the United Communist party of India passed a resolution supporting the division of India and said India consists of at least fourteen nationalities. This is the history of left. 

But after a long time the real face of Indian left came up in public domain, that how in the name of freedom of expression and right to dissent, these self-proclaimed fighters of Indian poor promote secessionists of Kashmir and elsewhere. In 2000, Shahbuddin Ghouri an operative of JKLF who was pursuing M.Phil from JNU was arrested on charges of running sleeper cell and in 2013 another student of JNU, Hem Mishra was arrested on charges of being a Maoist operative. From celebration of killing of CRPF jawans to beef party the list is very big.

But it is important to talk about the real picture when there are attempts by leftists to mould the facts in light of the arrest of Kanhaiya Kumar, the JNUSU president, on charges of sedition. The leftists are creating chaos and are claiming the actions of the state as "fascist". 

But the truth is that they are trying to use this as a tool to save their real face. Kanhaiya took oath of JNU constitution which stands for the national integration of India, but one wonders what type of integration the anti-Indian sloganeering represents which was happening in his presence and why he didn't stop the activists of his organisation and likeminded, when they assaulted the Joint Secretary of JNUSU, Saurabh Sharma.

But very cleverly the leftists of India are hiding these facts from public and trying to divert from the core issue. No one can justify violence against Kanhiya, but the conspiracy is far bigger. It's about where in particular a large section of Indian left stands. It looks that they are in 1962, when they said Chinese army is coming to liberate them. 

The Indian state should not take this incident lightly. It is against the very idea of India. It poses a big question mark on Indian higher education that how students' minds are indoctrinated, which makes them support the secessionist movements against the Indian state. Now it's high time to know who are indoctrinating these young minds. Are the enemies of India using the youth and is it a proxy war? Many things will be revealed in the coming days.
