A few minutes before JNU Students’ Union president Kanhaiya Kumar left for the Patiala House Courts, he requested the police to give him a piece of paper. He wrote a letter to Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Prem Nath in which he said he has faith in India’s Constitution and does not support anti-national activities. Kanhaiya wrote that he opposed the anti-national slogans that were raised on the JNU campus.

    2 days in police custody and after 4 danda on this young revilutionary and beacon of anti nationals has changed his tune. He now believes in Indian consution and doesnt approve of anti national slogans being shouted in JNU. The others who werr shouting for Indias destruction and ran away and are hiding in their burrows. Suddenly they are leaking in their pants and their AAZADI dream has lost its steam. These anti nationals should undergo danda parade till they give details of their accomplice involed in such anti national qctivities

      But we all are not thankful. How can a nation lover be so narrow and uninformed? It may be harmful for the nation he loves?

        What if there were a million young boys and girls well educated, well brought up. well behaved, dedicated? What if this young boy was not alone? What if this mother India did not have to deal with millions of lumpen, deranged, mercenary elements?

          I am happy that I missed the boat which teaches students how to back-stab the country and how to disrespect the motherland. I am really thankful for missing it.

            P.hd in"Social Transformation in South Africa," really? And this guy is a Union Leader here. No wonder he is into politics. He should now concentrate his remaining years on doing the research. Hope he learned his lesson. I personally would not like him to be used by the Lefties to destroy our country.
