A New Low For the Rule of Law
Lawyers or people dressed as lawyers attacked the Jawaharlal Nehru University student Kanhaiya Kumar in court and manhandled him before his court appearance. First they tell you what to eat, then they tell you what to think, if you don’t comply they beat you up and jail you on spurious charges. This is happening in India’s capital Delhi. This is what Delhi’s police commissioner had to say about yesterday’s scuffle.
There are allegations that certain press reporters, and some students belonging to JNU, were roughed up. We are looking into it. Excesses were committed from all sides, but they have been extremely minor in nature. To my knowledge, nobody has received serious injuries. They are more in the shape of scuffles,”
Perhaps it is time to change India’s motto from Satyameva Jayate (Truth alone Wins) to Ham Satya nahin Sahen Kar Sakte ( We can’t handle the truth).
This JNU fracas is the latest in ongoing effort by RSS-BJP combine to discredit the left leaning student organizations and its leaders in India’s institutes of higher learning and install its own stooges wherever possible. Its the latest in the trend that started at Indian Institute of Technology-Madras when a student organization critical of Mr. Modi was banned, or the overtly political appointment of BJP stooge and a small time actor, Gajendra Chauhan to head India’s premier creative institute or the targeting of student leader Rohith Vemula, which lead to his suicide, earlier this year.
Has the Modi Sarkar (government) declared a war against it students?
