It is very much clear to say that what is happening regarding JNU, one of the premier institutes of India has a large political motivation. Suddenly BJP and RSS has become so very nationalist that they are reacting in every point. I support there reaction. They should react and nationalism is not bad at all. But the point when it becomes clear that only BJP is nationalist and others are not then the question arises.
Some students of JNU has shouted anti national slogans. They should be punished.The government has the authority to identify them and do it. But they are not taking initiative for that where as they have asked a shut down of JNU. If some body is giving anti national slogan that doesn’t mean that every student of JNU is anti national.
The question become furious when the government arrest Kanhaiya Kumar the President of JNU Student’s Union. The charge against Mr. Kumar is of sedition. Where as we have seen that there is no anti national statement made by him. So the question is coming that why is he has been arrested? The BJP is trying to show off the power what they have but in a very wrong way. It is really not true that a person should face arrest in a crime like sedition where he hasn’t done it.
This is reminding me of the arrest of Dr. Binayak Sen under the same law. India has seen using of sedition charge for political reasons.
Now comes the thought about media. Media has not right to shout insanely with the students against whom there is proper evidence of any anti national activity. Arnab Goswami to Zee News to News X every body is claiming that they are nationalist and any one who is saying normalize JNU or asking for justice of Mr. Kumar is a an anti nationalist.
When media can decide who is what, when Arnab Goswami can tell you who is a nationalist and what is a nationalism then you will understand that nationalism is not a love but a thing which you will write and put as a tag.
