An alert was issued by the Delhi Police on Friday following a tweet by a parody account asking Pakistan to support JNU student protesters. The police in its alert asked people not to get carried away by such seditious anti-national rhetoric.

Earlier in the day, police arrested JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar in a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy for holding an anti-national event inside the university premises. He was later sent to 3-day police custody by the court.

Taking strong exception to the anti-national slogans raised inside JNU campus at an event to commemorate the death anniversary of Parliament attack mastermind Afzal Guru, Home Minister Rajnath Singh also warned of “strongest possible” action against those involved in such acts.

      One can bet these activists sensed they have to work hard to get degrees in coming days. Sensing this they are looking for a way out by making political point expecting they will get support from award Wapsi and terror sympathiser brigade and eventually their political leadership. Political leadership already started lending their supports - lefties and Congis!arevalready in the picture although a bit distant at the moment!

        I support the Government. Any student of JNU who dares to support anti India activities must be expelled from the University and be By the state. I am proud my nation eliminated Afzal Guru.

          Where is kejru and pappu and all those who went to hyd to support another desh drohi? Their silence shows they dont condemn such anti national activities. NSUI is openly supporting anti nationals terrorists within colleges. So who is fighting these anti national forces in colleges - ABVP.

            JNU is breeding ground of anti national forces. It needs to controlled. Police needs to be vigilant over it.

              Why this love for terrorist? The congress is showing its true colours under the leadership of a foreign ruler. If the party were headed by a true indian such a statement would not have been made.People will definitely despise, hate congress showing its love for terrorists. Why congress , communists,m JDU and the like are promoting. Irshat was a terrorist, not only Headley, in 2013, the then IB director has written to home ministry, she was a terrorist Congress has become a terrorist promoting party.
