The JNU administration had recently served proctorial notices to four students for burning an effigy of the Gujarat government and gau rakshaks.

On Tuesday, members of the Congress-affiliated NSUI burnt an effigy representing the Prime Minister, to represent their “dissatisfaction with the current government” at the Sabarmati Dhaba.

They had also burnt effigies representing Ramdev, Sadhvi Pragya, Nathuram Godse, Asaram Bapu and JNU Vice-Chancellor Jagadesh Kumar.

Responding to the event, the vice-chancellor tweeted: “The effigy burning incident at JNU was brought to our notice. We are investigating the matter and examing all relevant information.”

Sunny Dhiman, a leader of the NSUI, said, “Earlier, we had burnt an effigy of Modi on the campus premises and nothing happened. Effigy burnings are routine in JNU… no permission is needed for them.”

    JNU is a breeding ground for anti India forces. Communist Mafias have hijacked this university and it is being used for anti India activities. Gov should either cleanse these Mafias or close this Communist factory.

      Free speech no doubt but what are their demands. Simply Hindu bashing, against concept of India, against our mythology, against our Devis and Devtas. To sum up that is acute form of terror, ultra negativism and hatred towards majority of Indians. Politically the leftist thought is so nice to smell but has been rejected throughout the world. May be it could coincide with the thought process of North Korea.

        British has liberated the mes from the slavery of thousand years and they have empowered Ambedakar and untouchables, otherwise the untouchables would have been suffering the same fate even today. British Raj has defeated different warring kingdoms of this country and made a civilized nation out of it and provided western education, it was theocracy before that, you must be some supersious brainwashed religious person who does not any logic.

                they burned effigies of all hindu figures because they were not happy with them. But they did not burn any effigies of Azhar Masood, Hafiz or ISIS. So what does it mean ? that they are happy with the Islamists and terrorists !! this is what happens when there is no culling of dumbs and treacherous Jai Chands for generation-upon-generations. Had there been the cleansing like the European wars - this current stock would for sure been much better and intelligent. .... :-(
