New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Indresh Kumar on Tuesday described as very shameful that the Congress Party is protecting people raising anti-national slogans.
“Congress who fought for freedom is protecting people who are raising slogans of hail Pakistan. It is very shameful. JNU which served for many years has become a ground of anti-national environment,” Kumar told ANI here.
Kumar also added that if someone oppose the hanging of these terrorist are opposing law, they are also defaming the followers of Islam.
“If they cannot respect Islam then should not insult Islam. The nation wants people like Kalpana Chawla, A. P. J. Abdul Kalam who are loyal to the nation and not people who talks against the nation. Ashfaq Ullah, Lala Lajpat Rai, Jhansi Rani and other freedom fighters have been insulted by these incidents. The Congress should have at least thought about those Congressmen who fought for the nation,” he said.
“Those who are passed out of JNU are condemning this incident. JNU should not be declared anti national. They should not be labeled as traitor,” he added.
The Congress Party however targeted the Delhi Police for taking ‘high-handed’ action in the JNU row, alleging that the B.S. Bassi-led team initiated the probe without having ‘substantial evidence’ in the incident.
Congress leader P.C. Chacko said that the police should act in a proportionate manner and should not conduct any proceedings without any clear cut evidence against JNU Students’ Union President Kanhaiya Kumar.
The Congress leader also said that law of the land should be the basis.
“If the police have any evidence that anyone can be charged under any provisions of law, they can do so,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court will today hear the plea seeking a probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in the sedition case against JNU student Union president Kanhaiya Kumar.
It has also sought a judicial inquiry in the entire case, soon after a group of men in lawyers’ robes were seen thrashing students and journalists in the nearby Patiala House court complex yesterday.
The petition alleged that Delhi Police was not investigating the case properly and the matter should be transferred to the NIA. The bench yesterday posted the matter for hearing today.
It also observed that the Delhi Police was already conducting a probe and would take the case to its logical conclusion.
