The star wrestler, in a detailed post, asked what kind of freedom of speech this is where people are disrespecting mother India. He added that if Afzal Guru was a martyr, what would people call Hanumanthappa?

Yogeshwar’s post went viral in no time and was liked by 56, 933 and shared by 7, 720 users.

Earlier in the day, a scuffle broke out at the Patiala House court in New Delhi after a group of about 40 lawyers present inside the court started shouting anti-JNU slogans demanding that University faculty should be removed from the court room.

The faculty, however, refused to vacate the court forcing women police constables to arrive at the scene.

The university teachers had on Sunday rallied behind protesting students and questioned the administration’s decision to allow the police crackdown on the campus even as they appealed to the public not to “brand” the institution as “anti-national”.

Teachers representing 40 central universities as well as faculty from the Pune-based FTII had come out in support of the agitating students saying it was an issue of “indiscipline” and not “sedition”.

          The comparison of the two individuals was the elephant in the room question, media has over egged the JNU non issue. The chaps would have been home studying at home by now. Guess it gets eyeball counts and so oxygen of advertiser revenue.

              As a civilian I salute our armed forces. Even I agree that he has attained martyrdom. Serving in Siachen deserves the highest respect. I second the statement that it was a senseless comment about martyrs.
