GUWAHATI: A programme was organized for several discussions on literature, book launches, and conversations with the authors on the second day of the Pragjyotishpur Literary Festival 2023. Dr. Anshu Joshi, Professor, School of International, Jawaharlal Nehru University, while participating in an interaction with the author conducted by eminent author-researcher Dr. Namrata Pathak, made strong remarks against fake secularism and love jihad. In this discussion on the much-read novel titled ‘JNU Mein Ek Ladki Rehti Thi’, Dr. Anshu Joshi, in response to the curious question of Dr. Namrata Pathak, exposed the hypocrisy in the name of Marxism and socialism at Jawaharlal Nehru University.
Noting that the background and characters of the novel have been brought from the campus of Jawaharlal Nehru University, the author made a significant comment using the environment of one of the leading educational institutions in the country. It is because of the thoughts of leftist students and teachers who have been languishing at JNU for a long time that the university has seen moral turpitude. Dr. Joshi’s appeal to the younger generation is to “learn to judge what is wrong and what is right”. JNU is the ‘average’ form of fake secular and love jihadi. “There should be a discussion in society on fake secularism,” said Dr. Anshu Joshi. Calling upon the new generation of writers and authors to be responsible towards society, Dr. Joshi advised them to write for the welfare of society, stated a press release.
