Former Jawaharlal Nehru University students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar sought a judicial probe into the killing of eight SIMI activists in an “encounter” in Madhya Pradesh on Monday.

He claimed that there were many “holes” in the police story which needed a thorough investigation. He was accompanied by students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya who also echoed his demand.

Attacking the BJP, Kumar said an atmosphere of fear was being created for minorities i the country. He sought unity among minorities and Dalits to fight for a country that treated everyone equal irrespective of caste, religion and gender.

“All people of this country have equal right to live their lives but people in power are not ready to even accept the Preamble of our Constitution,” he said. Regarding burning of a Modi effigy in JNU on Dussehra, Kanhaiya said he did not support it. “The effigy of Modi should not have burnt on Dussehra day,” he said. The JNU students were addressing audience at ‘Mela Ghadrai Babeyan Da’ at Desh Bhagat Yaadgaar Hall Jalandhar.

          Whu Media at large is giving so much importance to this useless fellow who is intellectually impotent and enjoying his stay at JNU.It is seen that all so called Secular and anti Hindu forces feels that he may turn into messiah to uplift them but the situation demands that he should be sent to stan alongwith Om Puri.

            Why only this, encounter at any place, govt under any political party, accused from any financial or religious background should be probed. Simply because state govt is BJP ruled and accused were Muslim, should not make this case special.

                  Why just stop at that? Such terrorists should also be provided with government ries, pa from the same taxpayers money, and all important decisions of the government must be first approved by terrorists council. Hope this will make you happy...or are some facilities still lacking?

                    This men is pure ic. In any form of Govt how can you support terror activist. But that is also the weakness of police and govt not punishing such guys. In India democracy and Courts every thing has become jokes. Even MPs have supported those terrorists. This type of Judiciary may lead country to civil war some day which is the motto of such people supported and funded by some politicians and other countries

                        Yep, because those 8 prisoners with backgrounds in terrorism had rights to not be hurt after murdering a constable and escaping. The next thing, we'll ask for a probe into the living conditions of jails for these poor people. Because they deserve the best possible care to deter them from thinking about escaping the next time. What a joke this guy has become! What a joke some of the media has become covering such stories! What a joke the people have become following this guy! Minorities should rejoice over the fact these escapees are wandering in open streets. Yet Kumar wants to make them believe there is a conspiracy. I can't believe how low some people in the country have gotten. Was life like heaven before 2014?
