Babri demolition anniversary: JNU cancels Subramanian Swamy's talk on Ram Temple

Babri demolition anniversary: JNU cancels Subramanian Swamy's talk on Ram Temple”

In order to "maintain communal harmony", the Jawaharlal Nehru University has cancelled two events on Babri Masjid and Ram Janmabhoomi, scheduled to be held on campus Wednesday.

Mr. Swamy was scheduled to speak on the topic "Why Ram Mandir in Ayodhya?' in Koyna hostel, organised by a students" body, the Vivekananda Vichar Manch, that showed that they had been given permission on November 27 to hold the lecture but was withdrawn on Tuesday.

This included a talk on the "Ram Janmabhoomi movement" by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy and a discussion in which CPM leader Prakash Karat was invited. While that talk was not cancelled yesterday, it will no longer take place after the dean of students' notification today. "They must have mounted pressure on VC Possibly the Left-wing students didn't want to hear my arguments because they fear my powerful arguments were in favour of temple", he said.

Subramanian Swamy on this issue said, "I had not applied to deliver a lecture in JNU but why my lecture was cancelled, this only the authorities can answer".

Mr. Karat was to speak on "Reclaiming the Republic: In Defence of Our Syncretic Culture, Constitutional Morality, Secularism" in a programme organised by the JNU Students' Union at the Sabarmati Hostel.

However, the senior warden of the hostel on Tuesday evening issued a notice to the organisers saying that the event "has been cancelled". It was later called off after the administration faced charges of being "biased".

"The administration would have let it happen if it was a meet on anti-Indian forces where slogans like "Bharat teretukdehonge" would raise", said RaghavendraMishra, one of the organisers. JNUSU president Geeta Kumari called the decision to cancel their event "censorship".

The Supreme Court on Tuesday made a decision to continue the final hearing of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case on February 8 next year, brushing aside the plea of the Sunni Wakf Board to postpone it till after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections over concerns that the final verdict would have political and electoral repercussions.

Despite several attempts, Dean of Students Umesh Kadam did not respond for a comment.
