Delhi High Court judge in the JNU student union president petition noted that the claim of “fundamental right to freedom of speech and expression is some kind of infection from which such students are suffering which needs to be controlled/cured before it becomes an epidemic.” Further, the judge noted that we are enjoying this freedom only because our army and paramilitary are guarding our borders in one of the most difficult terrains in the world from Siachen Glacier to the Rann of Kutch. Such person who enjoy the freedom to raise such slogans on university campuses and shout anti-national slogans, will not be able to withstand Siachen for even one hour where oxygen is scarse.”

Till recently, most people have been fed up, sad and angry about the uncalled for anti-national protests and slogan shouting by some students of the tax payer funded JNU. Now Yogeshwar Dutt, India’s star wrestler and olympic bronze medalist has penned a Hindi poem criticizing these students, politicians and others who are supporting them. In the 19-line poem, these students who raised anti-national slogans are compared to invader Mahmud Ghaznavi. Further, these students are accused of dishonoring the sacrifice of Indian soldiers, including Lance Naik Hanumanthappa — one of 10 soldiers who died in an avalanche in Siachen earlier this month.
