“Peace Comes with Justice.If there is no justice, there is no peace.”-Afzal Guru
As per the latest judgement announced by Delhi Court today, JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar got an interim bail for a period of six months on a bail bond of 10,000 rupees. Surely, its a victory which should be celebrated in the ‘modified’ India, where students are witch hunted irrespective of universities.
But the problematic judgement by the court is not a good signal for thousands of Indians who still have the hope in the last resort of democracy, judiciary.
Putting the responsibility on JNU Students and Teachers, the Judge says “This spring why colour of peace eluding prestigious JNU, needs to be answered by its students, faculty”. The Judge even mentioned that the ‘infection’ which students are suffering need to be cured.
The Judgement started by quoting the lines of a patriotic song from Bollywood movie Upkaar
“Rang hara hari singh nalwaa ke
Rang laal hain laal bahadur se
Rang bana basanti bhagat singh
Rang aman ka veer jawahar se
Mere desh ki dharti, sona ugle
Ugle here moti meredesh ki dharti”

The court which remain silent while a young dalit commit suicide in his own room and his mother was dragged in the streets of capital city is now busy with taking study class on patriotism. If the court still sticks on to the delusion of a fairy skinned ‘Bharathmatha’ weighed with gold ornaments instead of the thousand of real ‘Bharathmatha’ working hard in the street to meet the both end of thier daily life, questions should be arised on that so called idea of ‘Nationalism’. The righteous purpose of a University in these dark times is to debate fascism and the so called constructed ‘patriotism’. By arising that question the ‘colour of peace’ must be eluded. The comfortable zone of the privilaged peace lovers are hurt,while some one brings the issues of dalits, minorities, kashmiris, north east etc to their dining tables.
The courts, which supports the authoritarian nature of the University administration is not a positive sign for the great Indian democracy.
Below is an excerpt from the Judgement.
“While dealing with the bail application of the petitioner, it has to be kept in mind by all concerned that they are enjoying this freedom only because our borders are guarded by our armed and paramilitary forces. Our forces are protecting our frontiers in the most difficult terrain in the world i.e.Siachen Glacier or Rann of Kutch”
“The kind of slogans raised may have demoralizing effect on the family of those martyrs who returned home in coffin draped in tricolor”.
“The reason behind anti-national views in the mind of students who raised slogans on the death anniversary of Afzal Guru,who was convicted for attack on our Parliament,which led to this situation have not only to be found by them but remedial steps are also required to be taken in this regard by those managing the affairs of the JNU.”
“Peace Comes with Justice.If there is no justice, there is no peace.I think that is what i want to say now.If you want to hang me,go ahead with it, butremember it would be a black spot on the judicial and political system of the India”-Afzal Guru

NB:There are so many similarities between the Court’s Judgement and a right wing patriotical advice. But, it will be coincidential just as an article published by Sangh Parivar mouth piece Panchajanya and Delhi Police Intelligence report has a lot to share in common…!!!Jai Hind
