A professor of journalism at Mysore University has landed in trouble after he attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, HRD Minister Smriti Irani and former PM Jawaharlal Nehru at a condolence event held for University of Hyderabad scholar Rohith Vemula.
On Friday, a complaint was filed against professor Mahesh Chandra Guru for using abusive language against Modi, Nehru and Irani.
The complaint was lodged by Dalit activist and general secretary of the Karnataka state BJP SC Morcha Chi Na Ramu with the Bengaluru police. Ramu, who is also president of All India Dr Amedkar Prachar Samiti, has sought Prof Guru’s arrest. “I want the police to act against Guru. Many newspapers have carried details of his speech. Based on the media reports, I filed a complaint against him in the police commissioner’s office,” Ramu said.
The language used by Prof Guru would provoke people to take law into their hands and would instigate the student community against the PM and the HRD Minister, he said.
