BJP’s controversial MP Yogi Adityanath has warned JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar by saying that Jinnahs won’t be allowed to be born in India’s educational institutions. He added that, if such elements were born in premier institutes, they would be buried. The MP made his remark while replying to questions from the media at Gorakhnath temple, of which he is the chief priest.
“Those (Kanhiaya) who are out of jail must understand that it is only interim bail for six months. They must consider the conditions on which the court has released them. Let us patiently wait for six months by which time the court will decide on the issue,” he said.
Adityanath has also denied that the BJP-led government at the centre was working with a mala fide intent. “The BJP is not against any individual. But the students should refrain from hailing people like Afzal Guru, who had targeted Parliament, in the name of freedom of speech and expression,” he said.
“Whatever is happening inside the JNU is condemnable. What is more condemnable is the fact that the teachers of the university are also involved in these activities. It is very shameful,” Adityanath said.
Adityanath’s comments come close on the heels of BJP Yuva Morcha leader Pardesh Kuldeep Varshney’s announcement of a reward of Rs 5 lakh for cutting off JNU students’ union leader Kanhaiya Kumar’s tongue.
