Anti-India Acts Won’t Be Tolerated: Rajnath on JNU Row
The Home Minister has promised “stringent action” against those involved in anti-India activities.
Talking tough, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday warned of the “strongest possible” action against those involved in raising anti-India slogans at an event in the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus, saying such activities will not be tolerated.
If anyone raises anti-India slogans, tries to raise questions on country’s unity and integrity, they will not be spared. Stringent action will be taken against them.Rajnath Singh
“Nation can never tolerate any insult to Mother India,” said Union Minister Smriti Irani on the issue.
A group of students on Tuesday held an event on the JNU campus and allegedly shouted slogans against the government and the country over the hanging of Parliament attack convict, Afzal Guru, in 2013.
The event occurred despite varsity administration having cancelled the permission following a complaint by ABVP members, who termed the activity “anti-national”.
Delhi Police on Thursday registered a case of sedition in connection with the event, following complaints by BJP MP Maheish Girri and ABVP.
