Intervening into the JNU row, a group of IIT Madras faculties has expressed concern on institutions of higher learning being converted into war zones. They said that calling for the country’s dismemberment and ruin in the name of dissent is not acceptable.
The 56 faculty members wrote a letter to President Pranab Mukherjee, stating that there’s need to save educational institutions from the scholarship of abuse and hate and sought his intervention. They have requested the President to take steps for saving educational institutes from the scholarship of abuse, hate and discord and restoring the atmosphere of sobriety, reflection and harmony necessary for genuine scholarship. And it is actually a matter of concern that the institutions of higher learning are being converted into war zones by some academicians. politicians and sections of media.
In recent interview of Umar Khalid, the student activist of JNU, with Arnab Goswami, we have seen how disrespectful the person is. Such people are living in India, getting the scholarship ang abusing the nation and talking for the distruction of the nation. There should be strict actions taken against such act. The freedom of speech should not be utilized for any distructive purpose.
