Talking tough, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday warned of “strongest possible” action against those involved in raising anti-India slogans at an event in JNU campus here, saying such activities will not be tolerated.

“If anyone raises anti-India slogans, tries to raise questions on country’s unity and integrity, they will not be spared. Stringent action will be taken against them,” he told reporters.

The Home Minister said he asked the Delhi Police to take “strongest possible action” against those who were allegedly involved in anti-India acts in Jawaharlal Nehru University campus recently.

Union Human Resource Development minister Smriti Irani also said “nation can never tolerate any insult to Mother India.”

A group of students on Tuesday held an event on the JNU campus and allegedly shouted slogans against the government and the country over the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru in 2013.

The event occurred despite varsity administration having cancelled the permission following a complaint by ABVP members, who termed the activity as “anti-national”.

Delhi Police on Thursday registered a case of sedition in connection with the event following complaints by BJP MP Maheish Girri and ABVP.

          While Indians are mourning the death of hero Hanamanthappa, the anti-nationals are claiming that jihadis Afzal Guru and Ishrat Jahan are martyrs. Our brave soldiers bear inhumane conditions, to defend India's borders, ensure that Kashmir forever stays with us where it belongs, and ensure that India is forever the land of the free. Meanwhile, traitors within our country who only have the right to breathe because of martyrs like thappa are chanting in supports of jihadis who murder our military.

            Hehehe....It is funny to see how Modi Government is EASILY getting TRAPPED in oppositions trap. Cool. Delhi church, Dadri, Award Wapsi, Rohith and now JNU...all these campaigns are orchestrated to Discredit Modi govt. Opposition very well know that BJP_RSS cannot control themselves from proving themselves as THE SOLE DESH BHAKTS. Opposition wants BJP to waste their energy on dealing with such issues.

              Rajnath Singh,Home Minister must know that in stan when Indian Flag was raised, hewas sent to jail next day for ten years immediately.Whereas in India after raising slogan against India and Pro-stani slogan no action taken against culprits.That is why every time whether it is in Kashmir or at JNU such pro-stan slogan is being raised.It is really shame on the part of govt for its inaction and Parties which support such students.No respect for nation but simply votes bank politics.

                It is time for Rajnath Singh and Smirti Iran to tell all students "You are not allowed to think"! "You are not allowed to express any opinion!!" and there is no freedom of thought and speech for you.

                    The traitors should be identified using the video footage and given death sentence and the death sentence should be executed within 1 week. The people of India do not want the burden of traitors.

                        Dear ,V. C. these are elements planted by B. J. P. to divert attention of nation from it's decimal performance and the siege of BHOJ MOSQUE . All the anti national elements consider the dreaded terrorist NATHU RAM GODSE as their role model to harm India . This incidents is stage managed by the B.J.P just as a excuse for saffronisation of J.N.U. campus to fulfill the desire of R.S.S. .

                          These anti social elements resembles Dreaded Terrorist Nathu Ram Godse. Therefore B.J.P. government Will encourage them instead of punishing to reap electoral benefits. Raj Nath's claim is just lip service. J. N. U. please defy B. J. P. and become nationalist to defeat anti nationals and supporter of Nathu Ram Godse.Obviously these J. N. U. slogan mongers are planted by B. J. P. to divert attention from important issues like BHOJ MASJID siege and benefit them in elections.

                                Respected Home Minister ji ! Please act ! No one dare speak against India . All those seen on camera insulting India should be put behind bars, student grants cancelled and deported . Be tough , set an example ! Zero tolerance policy is a must in these cases. Political parties, other organizations or people who are exploiting this situation should be ashamed. Please think of the brave soldiers who gave their life for your tomorrow ! For India our mother land !

                                  These protestors at the JNU are anti-national elements should be tried for treason and sent to life in prison. These protestors are who got admission to these universities on the basis of quotas/reservation and wasting government resources. Are these JNU protest groups set up by the communal congress party and the communists to demonize the BJP and Modi?????A Definite YES. Should the and illiterate dynastic congress leader Rahul hi be arrested for supporting these traitors at the JNU???? A DEFINITE YES.
