'Azadi for Kashmir' poster surfaces in JNU, removed

A poster calling for freedom for Kashmir was seen on the wall of the School of Social Sciences' new block of the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University sending administration into a tizzy on Thursday.

The poster was noticed by some students who then alerted the varsity administration.

"Freedom for Kashmir! Free Palestine! Right to self-determination long live," the poster, which appeared in the name of ultra-Left group DSU, stated. By evening, the administration had asked the university security to remove the poster.

DSU, or Democratic Students Union, is the same group whose former members Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya and others organised a protest rally on February 9, 2016, against the hanging of Parliament attack mastermind Afzal Guru and Kashmiri separatist Maqbool Bhat.

Alleged anti-national slogans raised during the rally had led to police slapping sedition cases on these students.

Khalid and Bhattacharya, along with former JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar (from CPI-affiliated AISF) are out on bail after arrest on charges of sedition for the February 9 event.
