<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Assistant Professor Dr. Buddha Singh, whose car was vandalised for organising a condolence meet for the CRPF personnel who were killed in the Sukma attack, on Sunday said the meeting was organised in order to remove anti-India tag, imposed post the Kanhaiya Kumar incident.‘This incident took place day yesterday. We organised a programme to condemn the attack and to pay tribute to the Armed Forces. It is the same place where the November 9 incident took place, where anti-India slogans were shouted,’ Singh told ANI. “We deliberately chose the place to show that we are with the Army and secondly, it was a mere condolence meet; it was not a political-ideological programme,’ he added.Singh said a complaint was written to the Chief Security Officer (CSO) and an FIR was registered with the police.Singh had alleged that his car was vandalised by unknown persons and stones were pelted at his house for condoling Sukma and Kupwara bravehearts.The condolence meet was held at JNU’s Sabarmati Dhaba. Condemning the incident, wherein the car of a professor was vandalised in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), another professor of the university Prof. Ashwin said the team of the institution was in the hands of few anarchists.‘Unfortunately, the JNU team is in the hands of few anarchists and is more concerned about the government policies. It is interested more in what is happening in Delhi University,’ Prof. Ashwin said.‘I saw a silence for the first time over such incident against violence and that too against a teacher. The JNU is supposed to protect and promote interests in the teaching community. Even if it is small, it is a case of violence and breach of freedom of speech,” he added.Earlier, an assistant professor at JNU, Prof. Buddha Singh, alleged that his car was vandalised and stones were thrown at his house by unknown attackers for organising an event on the university campus to condole the death of jawans in Sukma and Kupwara.Reacting to the accusations, JNUSU in a statement said Singh was trying to gain “cheap publicity”. “Buddha Singh made a diversionary statement for cheap publicity that his car has been vandalised because he organised a programme on Sukma. The RSS always resorts to such tactics to divert attention, so that tough questions are not put to Home Minister Rajnath Singh,” JNUSU president Mohit Kumar Pandey said in the statement.The students’ union demanded that the matter be inquired properly by the police or the administration. Delhi Police sources confirmed that a non-cognisable report has been registered in connection with the matter, which means that the complainant can claim insurance for the damage caused.
