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. .... :-(

                      The undergraduates should for sedition. So many Indian soldiers are dying at the hands of terrorists. These students are not least bothered about it. Rahul ghandhi, the half Indian and his Italian mother do are not bothered about teh future of India. They want their family dynasty to rule Inida even at the expense of selling the country to the terrorists.

                        Burning effigy of any political person is not a problem. but the spirit, which is driving the students to these steps must be controlled. Their teachers are equally responsible.

                          Do not worry my countrymen, Our PM Mr Modi is fully competent to handle such bullying. These people are not the courts of law.lt;br/gt;He is the man who faced the highest levels of bullying by congress/leftists and media for 15 years till date. But never demoralised. In spite of all the people working against him Mr Modi was cleared off the charges by Honourable Supreme Court of India.lt;br/gt;This incident is very small to bully Mr Modi's dignity.

                            Effigy burning is quite common in India and there is need for fuss over it. Recent times TN farmers burning Modis effigy all OVER TN to condemn his biased approach for Cauvery water dispute considering their rude shock for Modi government somersault in Apex court regarding consution of Cauvery water monitoring board. Political leaders should treat brick bats and bonquet equally considering their performance. Modis certain speeches in overseas also highly controversial .

                                  Isn't this a funny statement saying effigy burning is a routine !! What does it signify ? , what have you achieved by doing this ?...Just gained some media attention that's it ! Is that all that you have learnt being in such an insution. On what basis have the effigies been Why don't you take up bigger challenges which are action oriented and not limited to pive news hungry interventions.

                                        The JNU is a mini pak and terrorists den inside our Capital. Unfortunately the anarchist as the cm is too happy to be with them and support their activities. Unless some surgical strikes take place and these terrorists elements are taken and send to stan the University will soon become a pak publicity place. jai Hind.

                                            when will all the anti-nationals of JNU be deported to some lunatic asylum? I think it is time to groom an island like port-blair (during British regime) to throw such anti-nationals along with their parties
