New Delhi: Unhappy over the anti-national sloganeering in support of terrorist Afzal Guru at Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University ( JNU ) campus, a group of ex- Army officers have threatened to return their degrees as protest.
According to the media reports, officers of the 54th NDA Course have told the JNU V-C that they find it difficult to be associated with the university which is turning into a hub of 'anti-national' activities. It will be difficult to be associated with such institution.
All the cadets, who join the National Defence Academy (NDA) after 10+2, are provided with a graduation degree of Jawaharlal Nehru University after the completion of the course..
JNU has been in the news after a group of students shouted anti-India and pro-Afzal Guru slogans during a function in the university campus.
The event was organised by a group of students to protest the 2013 hanging of Guru, an alleged Jaish-e-Mohammed militant, from Kashmir. The protest sparked clashes between two groups of students after which police were deployed in the campus.
A day later, another meeting was held at the Press Club of India in Delhi where anti-India slogans and placards were also raised.
Kanhaiya Kumar, the president of the left-dominated JNU Students Union, was arrested from a hostel in the university campus early on Friday in the police crackdown.
