Hitting out at Rahul Gandhi and other opposition leaders who have criticised the arrest of a JNU student leader, BJP on Saturday alleged that they were speaking in the voice of terror outfit LeT which was an insult to the martyrs and would boost the morale of anti-national forces.

BJP claimed that the “anti-India” march on JNU campus by a handful of people had invited country-wide condemnation but Congress and other opposition parties were targeting the Modi government due to their “political malice” and vote bank politics.

“Rahul Gandhi and his friends are speaking in the voice of LeT terrorist Hafiz Sayeed who had tweeted in support of anti-India event in JNU. It is an insult to our martyrs and armed forces who sacrifice their lives on the border and will boost the morale of anti-national forces.

“JNU has produced many intellectuals and bureaucrats. A handful of people there have given anti-India speeches. Law is taking its course. BJP will urge Congress to not insult our martyrs for political reason,” BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma said.

Referring to the recent deaths of army personnel, he said it was unfortunate that while soldiers sacrificed their lives on the border, anti-India slogans were raised and terrorists hailed as martyrs in an institution like JNU.

Reacting to the arrest of the student leader over the controversial JNU event, Gandhi had said, “Modi Govt and ABVP bullying an institution like JNU, because it won’t toe their line is completely condemnable.”

“While Anti-India sentiment is unquestionably unacceptable, the right to dissent & debate is an essential ingredient of democracy,” the Congress leader had said.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a tweet had said, “No one supports anti-national forces. But targeting innocent students using that as an excuse will prove very costly to Modi government”.

BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi said efforts to give “ideological cover” to violence and anti-India activities cannot be allowed.

“The way foul language was used against the Prime Minister…a group of students is trying to damage the dignity of an institution like JNU in the name of cultural agitation,” he said.

Against the backdrop of claims made by Pakistani-American terrorist David Headley on Ishrat Jahan, Trivedi slammed the JD(U) for joining opposition parties in raising the JNU issue, saying it had termed her as the “daughter of Bihar”.

“At a time when Bihar is being criminalised, JD(U) is joining others on the JNU issue…we won’t allow any atrocity on students but at the same time we can’t let go anti-nationals,” he said.

Sharma accusing Congress of doing politics over terrorism and said the recent comment of a top former IB officer had “exposed” the opposition party. “Even in 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai, Congress had alluded to the involvement of RSS,” Sharma said.

      What nonsense Pappu and useless Kujli talking.One seems to be supporting anti-national elements and the other talking in air as if he has found that these roughs in name of students are innocent. Some time people wonder that such so called discarded leaders are those persons for whom doubt always remain that certain inner disloyal people are doing more harm to the unity and stability of the Country. Why not such bad elements be exposed so that we can take prompt action as hidden enemy is more dangerous than enemy on ground.shame on those also who support such anti people maroons.

        What has happened to indian intellects? Whn did rg support antiindian slogen or those who uttered them? He only has opossed Abvp's political tactics to suppress voice of different openion. I think for the first time he stands for the right thing. Opposing bjp n rss does not mean to b anti natinal. Is it? Govt should punish those traitors with iron hand instead of haring n arresting innocents to gain political advantage and to prove their nationalism greater than others

                  Has India been around only for 60 years? This guy does not even know when the country became independent from Britain. For anti national like you slogans might not hurt. But there are millions for whom it does. Who are the people who are working day and night to destroy India. Who are experts in spreading poison in the minds of people? I will name them for you: communists, christian missionaries and wahabis . To which group do you belong to ?

                            Just as IIT is no guarantee to the country's development we see yet another glowing example showing that education in a reputed insution is no guarantee of morals. While millions sleep hungry on the footpath and soldiers die by the dozen these so called premier insution's "INTELLECTUAL STUDENTS" aim to bring instability and strife to their mother land. Such a shame.

Remember Ishrat Jahan? To whom Bihar CM called Bihar's Daughter and Hyderabad MP Owaisi called her sister Remember Ishrat Jahan? For whom Sonia hi cried and Arvind Kejriwal demanded justice by almost crying. Remember Ishrat Jahan? In whose tribute, Ambulance Service is being run in Mumbai by secular NGO. Remember Ishrat Jahan? To whom our Top Media Preferred to call 'Shaheed' and Narendra Modi was presented as Serial Killer of Innocent and Peace Loving Muslims.

                                          Are you talking about stan's agent M.O.D.I.(most Organised Destructive Indian) of B.J.P.(Bhartiya Jhagralu Party ) in the service of R.S.S.(Republic of Sinister Solutions) to give stan edge over India . M. O. D. I. proves too soft to stan along with it's terrorists. Total tolerance to terrorists as against promised zero tolerance and intolerant/ruthlessly extremist to Natives has left this habitually outspoken man to reduced to a man of few words and from here on TOTAL BOLTI BAND. Nation has expected to hear slogan like One and half billion Indians and India , like 18 carore Gujarati and Gujarat.

                                            These anti national elements are planted by B. J. P. to divert attention of nation from it's decimal performance and the siege of BHOJ MOSQUE . These. B. J. P. sponsered anti national elements are the follower of the dreaded terrorist NATHU RAM GODSE . Clearly, this incident of rising anti-India slogan is stage managed by the B.J.P just as a excuse for saffronisation of J.N.U. campus to fulfill the desire of R.S.S. .
