Students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) have made their mark as firebrands. Besides strong student unions, the alumni also have strong connections with the defence institutes of the country.

The university provides academic courses to the students of six prominent defence institutes, including the National Defence Academy (NDA).

Now, ex-servicemen from the 54th NDA course who were commissioned into the armed forces in the late 1970s have threatened to return their degrees. In a letter to the JNU Vice Chancellor, the ex-servicemen say.

We the proud fraternity of Ex servicemen of the June 1978 Batch of National Defence Academy, who are proud recipient of the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts Degree from your esteemed University, are today constrained at the ongoing anti national activities on your university campus like celebration of Afzal Guru day, and consider it an affront to be equated with the present student fraternity of the university which is indulging in such anti national activities.
