New Delhi, Feb 10: The JNU administration on Wednesday ordered a “discipliry” enquiry into holding of an event on campus against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru despite cancellation of permission saying any talk about country’s disintegration cannot be “tiol”.
The university’s move came in wake of protests by members of ABVP outside the VC office demanding expulsion of students who “misled” the university about ture of the event.
“A committee which will look into the issue and find out the reasons which led to this has been formed. The committee is going to have three other members who are going to send a report after investigating the details,” said JNU official.
The action comes after posters came up across the campus inviting students to gather for a protest march against “judicial killing” of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhat in solidarity with “struggle” of Kashmiri migrants, at varsity’s Sabarmati dhaba.
By the evening the incident snowballed into a huge controversy with the members of Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) terming it anti-tiol and undemocratic in ture and demanding the expulsion of the organizers. The university authorities canceled the protest “fearing” that it might “disrupt” peace on the campus. However, the organisers went ahead with the programme despite the cancellation of the permission.
