This is not the first time JNU students have allegedly resorted to hooliganism. Previously, the statue of Vivekananda was allegedly vandalised by a group of students. The statue of Vivekananda was soon to be inaugurated at the university. Born as Narendranath Dutta, Swami Vivekananda, an ex-barrister, took the mantle of his Guru, Shri Ramakrishna Paramhansa’s teachings and spread the charm and aura of Sanatan Dharma throughout the world.
JNU Students Union and JNU Teachers’ association were against the installation of the statue in the university premises. “We ask as to what is the source of funds for the construction of the statue? They said, on one hand, the varsity does not have money for library funds and for disbursal of the Merit-cum-Mean Scholarship to students and on the other hand it is busy in constructing statues,” said JNUSU when the administration proposed the installation of the statue.
The students of JNU have been protesting against the hostel pay hike in the university. The university administration, in order to improve facilities, increased the monthly fee from 10 rupees per month to 300 rupees, for single-seater while that of double seater was increased from 20 rupees per month to 600 rupees.
HRD minister Ramesh Pokhariyal was held hostage for 6 hours at the AICTE building due to protest. Many students came from foreign countries to attend the convocation ceremony, missed their flights because they couldn’t leave the AICTE building due to protest.
The unlawful activities have become an everyday occurrence in JNU. From anti-national slogans to illegal trafficking banned drugs, holding the Vice-Chancellor and professor hostage for hours, JNU has been in news for all the wrong reasons for years.
A permanent police station inside the university is the best solution to prevent unlawful activities by students. A few days ago, Visva-Bharati University in Shantiniketan became the first university to have a permanent central government security force. The government employed Central Industrial Security Force after the Vice-chancellor asked for the same to maintain the law and order situation in the university.
JNU is a ‘promised land’ to adherents of Communism. The extreme freedom of expression, ideas, clothing for which space around the world is shrinking can find space in the Promised Land.
The slogans like- Lal Salaam, We Shall Fight, We Shall Win, Brahmanvad Ho Barbaad, Bharat Tere Tukde Hoge Inshallah Inshallah, Kashmir ki Azaadi Se Bharat ki Barbaadi Tak Jang Rahegi Jang Rahegi could be heard only inside the boundary walls of JNU.
Employing a central government’s paramilitary force is necessary to maintain law and order situation, in which the students who want to focus on studies and research could do the same.
