New Delhi: Former Supreme Court judge Justice Markandey Katju on Saturday alleged that since its inception not a single creative and scientific idea has come out from the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

Ever since the incident of an alleged anti-national slogans on the grounds of JNU took place in the national capital, following the arrest of JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar on sedition charges, many individuals have come forward to share their views.

Katju today took to twitter to express what he feels about JNU, which is according to him, nowadays being praised not only in India but even in abroad.

Here's what he wrote in a series of tweet:    

Further hitting out at Kanhaiya Kumar, Katju asked, "Do people who demand azadi from India really understand its implications?"

"Kanhaiya is a brave man but with no scientific ideas," he added.

In January, Katju had announced he was quitting Facebook, where he has nearly four lakh followers.

However, the JNU row proved too irresistible for Katju to hold back. Last month, Katju ended his prolonged break on Facebook.

"In my opinion, arrest is unnecessary in this case. If the police wish to interrogate these students they can ask the VC or Registrar of JNU to arrange for a room or hall in a building in the JNU campus where the police can come and interrogate the students without arresting them," he wrote.

Over 2,500 students and teachers gathered at the admin block of Jawaharlal Nehru University on Thursday to welcome JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar.

Kanhaiya, who has been accused of sedition, was granted a six-month interim bail by the Delhi High Court on Wednesday.

While addressing the gathering, Kanhaiya demanded that HRD minister Smriti Irani should grant their fellowships and make honest efforts to apprehend those who are responsible for 26-year-old Rohith Vemula's death.
