Taking a serious note of the anti- national slogans in the JNU , UnionHome Minister Rajnath Singh  has clearly asserted that strict action will be taken against the demonstrators and said that ‘anti-national’ elements will not be tolerated. The statement comes after  an event at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

Marking the third death anniversary of Guru, a group of students  held an event on the campus and shouted slogans against government for hanging him, despite varsity administration having cancelled the permission following a complaint by ABVP members, who termed the activity as ‘anti-national’.

“When someone is in the country and raises anti-national statements, raising questions on India’s unity, diversity and sovereignty then they won’t be forgiven. What happened in JNU was unfortunate and for that, I have already given the necessary instructions to the Delhi Police Commissioner,” Rajnath told ANI and other media representatives .

“You can’t raise anti-national statements while you stay in India,” he added. Earlier, the Delhi Police registered a case of sedition against the JNU students who had agitated against the hanging of Guru following complaints by Bharatiya Janata Party MP Maheish Girri and RSS’s student front Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad.
