SILCHAR, Feb 16: As a part of its tionwide protest against the ‘antitiol’ activities inside JNU campus, the ABVP unit of Assam University today held protest demonstration in the campus and denounced the provocative exercises by the unscrupulous elements to misguide and mislead the student community. Amitesh Chakraborty, joint secretary, northeast zone of the ABVP, said those who shout antitiol slogans and eulogize terrorists as martyrs are the greatest enemies of the country. He dubbed them and their activities as a part of the larger conspiracy to divide the country.

The ABVP’s protest also decried the left student bodies, SFI, AISF and AISA, and burnt their flags, hitting out at them for playing fire with the hard and long fought freedom of the country.

Amitesh Chakraborty said freedom of speech is everybody’s fundamental right, but it should not be taken for license to speak against the country.

Union Home Minister Rajth Singh has stated there is concrete evidences based on intelligence agencies of Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, chief of Jama’at-ud-Da’wah, about his connection in JNU.

Parishad activists held play cards which read “shutdown JNU”, “reme JNU as Jihadi xal University”, “stop using out hard paid tax money for breeding terrorists in the campus of JNU”. Among others who joined the protest demonstration included Satyajit Das, Rudrarup Bhattacharjee, Prithvis th, Varsha Bhardwaj, Nirupam Deb and Dipankar th.
