Happy with Kanhaiya's release from jail, wish he proves himself right: Shatrughan Sinha

BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha, who has been an avowed critic of his party, has once again come out in support of Kanhaiya Kumar, the JNU students union president who was arrested on charges of sedition for allegedly raising anti-national slogans.

"Happy about the grant of bail (although conditional) by the honourable court to Kanhaiya & pleased that he's been released from prison," Shatrughan wrote on Twitter on Saturday morning.

The 'Khamosh' actor also mentioned that he wish that Kanhaiya proves himself worthy of support he received from everyone who felt that he had been wronged.

"Hope, wish and pray that he will prove himself worthy of the support that he received from everyone who felt that he was wronged," he tweeted.

The rebel BJP leader had come out in support of Kanhaiya earlier saying that he had said nothing that amounted to sedition.

"Have heard transcript of speech of Kanhaiya, our Bihar boy president of JNUSU. He has said nothing anti national or against constitution. Hope wish and pray that he's release soon, sooner the better," Sinha tweeted.

Sinha further stated that the Jawaharlal Nehru University is going through a crisis 'for reasons best known to politicians'.

He went on to say that the JNU is an institution of international repute, enviable record and history.

"It is a seat of learning for some of India's brightest young minds & also some very respectable teachers. Save it from further embarrassment, he tweeted.
