The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided to strongly put forth its stand on JNU incident and also raise the testimony of Pakistani-American terrorist David Headley during the upcoming Parliament session to counter opposition onslaught by firing up a debate over its core theme of nationalism.

Party leaders said a decision has been taken to raise the Jawaharlal Nehru University row “very aggressively” in Parliament as they believe that there is no reason for the party to be “defensive” about the development and there is support for its stand on the issue among the masses.

The party is also launching a three-day ‘Jan Swabhimaan Abhiyan’ (campaign for peoples’ self-pride) starting on Thursday in which party leaders and workers will try to build up public opinion against the alleged anti-national activities in the central varsity and in support of action against people involved in it.

As part of its attempt to bring focus on the issue of nationalism, party leaders said the recent sacrifices made by soldiers in Siachen will also be highlighted across the country.

“The idea is to highlight the party’s stand on the issue very aggressively from Parliament to the streets. We have a strong and consistent stand on what has happened in JNU and there is no reason for the party leaders to be defensive about the development,” sources said.

Headley’s deposition that Ishrat Jahan, who was killed in an alleged fake encounter in Gujarat in 2004, was a Laskar-e -Taiba (LeT) operative will also come handy for the saffron party in cornering Congress, which has made it clear that it will target the treasury benches over a host of issues, including Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula’s suicide, “intolerance” and the status of economy, during the Budget session beginning on February 23.

        Good idea! Luyten's Media needs to be exposed. They sympathize and promote an anti-national agenda.

          Hi, I am surprised we are still discussing about what happened in JNU. Fact of the matter Afzal guru was hanged and was a terrorist. There can be no more anti national than talking about a terrorist, Period. I am surprised to say the least that we have become too a tolerant society which is not able to differentiate between what is good for nation and what is not good. If today we don't stop this then people like Owasis will also say he is only using his freedom of speech to say anything he wants to say

            Politics is like a prosution, it can meet anybody and anytime that what we are observing very often through media. Now-a-days politicians does not have any ethics. So do not mix up with politics, nationalism and religion both are different. If you agree that all Indians/Hindus became muslims then Indian are good. Is it your opinion?
