HENB | New Delhi | February 22, 2016:: On Sunday, Nationalist Bollywood actor and Panun Kashmir leader Anupam Kher and India TV Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma along with 31 other prominent personalities from various fields have issued a statement over JNU row condemning the anti-India sloganeering on Feb 9, the day Afzal Guru was hanged .
In their statement, it has been made clear that disagreement over various issues was something they welcome but what was happening in JNU was not acceptable to them as Indians.
It may be mentioned that the row had erupted after JNU students’ union President Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested last week in connection with a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy that was registered following an event on the varsity campus to protest against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru during which anti-India slogans were openly raised.
Labelling all those involved in such activities as ‘anti-nationals’, the prominent personalities said that supporting a terrorist like Afzal Guru is an insult to the Government, Supreme Court, President and Parliament.
“Being a democratic country, India has given freedom of speech and expression to every citizen but if somebody uses the same freedom to insult India, then it is not something that would please other citizens” said the statement.
Denouncing such an attitude towards India, they have appealed to the general public to take a stand and not let these people become successful in their intentions.
Here is the complete statement-
