As the row at JNU over an event against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru raged, a video allegedly showing ABVP members shouting pro-Pakistan slogans is going viral. ABVP, however, has rubbished the allegations saying the video was “morphed” to tarnish their image.

The 1 minute 32 second video titled “The Conspiracy”, uploaded on social media shows four students, allegedly
belonging to ABVP, the student’s wing of RSS, shouting “Pakistan Zindabad” slogans.

Students from the Left-wing groups alleged that members of ABVP had shouted anti-national slogans prompting the crowd which was a mixed bunch of different student groups and even outsiders to follow suit.

“They were the ones who shouted those slogans disrupting a meeting which was peacefully debating the issue. We do not even know who said what and they easily demonised every student as anti-national,” said a student who belongs to Left-backed All India Students Association (AISA).

JNU Students Union Joint Secretary, Saurabh Kumar Sharma, who is the only ABVP member among office bearers, said,

“These are all tactics to tarnish our image and attack us as we have objected to their anti-national activities. The video has been morphed only to defame us and spread false information”. The university authorities, however, could not comment on whether those seen in the video available with the varsity probe committee, were ABVP members or not.

JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested earlier this week in connection with a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy registered over holding of the event at the varsity during which anti-India slogans were alleged to have been raised.

Kanhaiya’s arrest has triggered widespread outrage among students and teachers and drawn severe criticism from non-BJP political parties.

        ABVP is student wing of BJP and not RSS. Your only aim is to spread hatred and not truth.

            Let Bi arrest these ABVP schemers and bare their nefarious designs. Can Bi be non partisan and remain in good books of HM RN Singh ? To expect sedition pasted on these jokers without a proof is foolhardy. Funny that BJP government’s imperiously presumptuous claim that it has the monopoly on nationalism. It was meant to be a display of brute force against a speech that was not in any way an immediate instigation to violence. The crackdown was an act designed to revel in ignorance of the law of sedition. Indeed, it was insidious in its remarkable ability to make ignorance the flaming torchbearer of nationalism. The government does not want to just crush dissent; it wants to crush thinking, as its repeated aults on universities demonstrate.Govt intentionally want to polarise the atmosphere the nation is accostommed to.

              इस घटना ने साबित कर दिया है की जो अंग्रेजो के समय मे देश के गद्दार थे वही आज भी देश के गद्दार है और देश की एकता को तोड़ने मे लगे है तथा दूसरों को बदनाम करके देश के गद्दार देश भक्त बनना चाहते है।

                I dont know who did it.. everyone should be punished, irrespective of their affiliation.. if it is ABVP or Left.. anyone involved should be ripped off his or her nationality to rot like orphans.. And if it turns out to be abvp, they should be given harsher punishment for spreading false news.. MOreover, every student party should be DE-recognized.. COlleges should only be for education..
