JNU Walls Defaced With Anti Brahmin Slogans
Various walls on JNU campus were defaced on Thursday with anti-Brahmin slogans
Several walls of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus were painted on 1 December with anti-Brahmin slogans.
Students asserted that the walls in the School of International Studies - II building were vandalised with slogans against Baniya and Brahmin communities.
In the meanwhile, the administration has condemned the incident, stating that School of International Studies and Grievances Committee has been instructed to inquire and submit a report to the Vice Chancellor Santishree D Pandit as soon as possible. The slogans on the wall said 'Brahmins Leave The Campus', 'There Will Be Blood', 'Brahmin Bharat Chhodo' and 'Brahmino-Baniyas, we are coming for you! We will avenge'. A few hours after the incident, the administration published a statement, saying such incidents will not be tolerated as the institution belongs to all.
The statement said, "The Vice Chancellor, Prof Santishree D Pandit has taken a serious note of the incident of defacement of walls and faculty rooms by some unknown elements in SIS, JNU. The administration condemns these exclusivist tendencies on campus."
It added, "The Dean, School of International Studies and Grievances Committee have been asked to inquire and submit a report to the VC at the earliest. JNU stands for inclusion and equality. The VC reiterates zero tolerance for any kind of violence on campus."
RSS-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad has accused the left for the vandalisation.
"ABVP condemns the rampant vandalisation of academic swpaces by communist goons. The communists have written abuses on the walls of JNU in the School of International Studies- II building. They have defaced chambers of free-thinking professors to intimidate them," stated ABVP JNU President Rohit Kumar.
"We believe that academic spaces must be used for debates and discussion and not for poisoning the society and students' community," he further said.
