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 military is an arm of the state. Are you suggesting that terrorist is the ideny of the entire Kashmiri potion have the people not had enough. Would you rather not have peace. Has not enough blood been spilt. How many widows and orphans do your masters from acros the border want. And for what what is independence anothe Syria, Iraq or stan is that what your vision of free Kashmir is. You have been reduced to pawns in a geo political strategy. You are just cannon fodder. You are fighting for Islam not region. Corre me if I am wrong. Every battle has a cost ociated with it and Kashmiris are paying the cos if stan strategic warfare. He who lives by the sword......

              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.

                These anti nationals are surely going to feel the heat from patriotic Indians , not the sickulars.

                  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.

                    Stop trying to provoke people on the bases of religion. It just will not work.

                      We follow events in Kashmir including the provocations which force the forces to use their arms. Stop testing the patience of the armed forces by pelting them with stones. Then when a child or youth gets hurt, blinded or killed there is an uproar. Parents need to control their children. I find it bizarre that an Indian citizen refers to our armed forces as Ur army. These are the same armed forces which rescued you when the floods caused devastation. We are extremely proud of our armed forces. And yes do not say a word about our army martyrs as the forum may descend on you. Find it very hard to believe you belong to India.

                        I do not expect Rahul hi to even appreciate and give a response to this poem. However, I do expect persons like Kejriwal and Nitish Kumar to respond to this challenge from an 'AAM AADMI'. May be their sleeping conscience will be awakened.

                                Yes the extremist ideology propagated by irresponsible leftists and the power hungry Congress family are ready to sell mother India for their dirty and filthy politics. People will give them the right slap very soon. Govt should ensure that all those JNU traitors are given punishment as per law.

                                      I agree fully with the view of Yogeshwar Dutt. Let us prey to GOD to please shower patriotic views on these nonsense activists. IT is really tragic that the definition of 2016 patriotism and martyr has changed from terrorists to nationalists vice versa. I presume that in our country, every wrong acts are easily accepted/considered/supported whereas every good acts have to labour very hard to make accept by general people.

                                        I have a question for all those who support Afzal Guru or the likes of him , or those who have a soft corner / are against the death sentence for anybody involved in terrorist activities. Suppose someone very dear to you , without whom you cannot imagine life is brutally killed by some XYZ guru , will you stand in your college campus and shout in his favour. I am sure the answer is NO .

                                            DEAR POET have u ever visited kashmir valley if u would have visited then probably u wil have never write any thing Afzal guru. Bcz every day ur so called indian army is killing innocent people of kashmir for nothing.Yesterday they fired n killed two students in pulwama for wat.ur army has created GUNDARAJ here in kashmir.Like yesterdays two youths who were killed by indian army are martyrs for people for kashmir in d same way as afzal guru.I dont want to comment anything negative abt ur siachen soldier but suggest u and others to visit kashmir once and analyse what is actually going on here by ur bruthal army and then make ur comment if really u have a human heart.
