JNU: Modi led RSS-BJP Govt.’s Attack

The Modi led RSS BJP Central Govt., cornered and defensive over Rohith Vemula’s institutional murder and the exposure of its anti Dalit character, intervened in a routine event held in February at Jawahar Lal Nehru University (JNU) situated in Delhi to push its own agenda. It also got a golden opportunity to turn people’s attention from the devastating agrarian situation, continual price rise, joblessness and absent ache din. Pouncing on an event, a wave of jingoism, righteous chauvinism and aggressive fake nationalism has been let loose in the country, based on video doctoring and Goebellsian ranting. The issues just couldn’t have been better for the RSS; a mix of Kashmir and communist baiting to which they themselves added the necessary seasoning of Pakistan.

The Jawahar Lal Nehru University is a Central university known for a liberal culture of tolerance of different viewpoints. By providing for special provisions to accommodate students from backward districts of the country, it has built a reputation for a representative mixture of students. The University has been an eyesore for the RSS, which associates it with communist views and which has long voiced intentions of getting it closed down.

CPI(ML) – New Democracy Condemns RSS Attack on JNU – Press Release on February 13, 2016

Delhi Committee of the CPI (M-L) New Democracy condemns the systematic attack by the RSS backed Modi Government on democratic movements led by students in institutions of higher learning in a bid to kill democratic traditions in these institutions, to impose the RSS’s version of what is ‘national’ on the people of India. On one hand, it is handing over India for corporate loot and invites corporate to loot India’s rich resources and cheap labour (“Make in India”, Startup India” etc.), commercialising the education and making it open for private players both Indian and foreign, making education less accessible by changing the provisions which help less privileged people to enter universities like JNU; at the same time it is trying to curb democratic culture and crush any voice of dissent while simultaneously trying to impose its regressive views as only correct and ‘nationalistic’ views and for that purpose it is targeting institutions like JNU.

It was seen clearly in the steps in Hyderabad Central University forced by the Human Resources Development Minister which resulted in taking the life of Rohitha Vemula, the attempt to ban Ambedkar Periyar Study Circle in IIT Chennai, and now an attack on students and on JNU alleging some pro Pakistan slogans in a doctored video.… Read More

PDSU Condemns ABVP Hooliganism in JNU – Press Release on February 10, 2016

PDSU strongly condemns the behavior of ABVP hooligans in JNU last night, when a group if students were peacefully observing the death anniversary of the hanging of Afzal Guru. They sought permission of VC. They were first granted the permission and then withdrew it under the pressure of ABVP citing that it may disrupt peace in the campus. When there rally consisting of more than 400 students reached end point at Sabarmati dhaba, the activists of ABVP aided by security guards attacked them and opposed the protest.

It is disturbing to note that now ABVP would decide which programmes can be held and which cannot be. And they have full support of administrative machinery. First VC denied permission fearing disturbance. Who other than ABVP would have disturbed? That means if something does not suit ABVP, that cannot be done. Instead of taking action against ABVP for disturbing and trampling right to express, it becomes reason for not allowing others. And when others decides to go ahead with their right to express, university machinery helps them like guard in this case and police in the case of demonstration at RSS HQ.

This is also worth mentioning that hanging order of Afzal Guru was protested even at that time as it was not correct even as per the law of the land.… Read More
