JNU issue : More than angry, We got Hurt

JNU issue : More than angry, We got Hurt



Constitution of India provides all types of freedom to its citizen and one of them is “freedom to speech”. Recently in Delhi, students of Jawaharlal Nehru University organized an event in which they expressed their enmity for ‘judicial killing’ of Afzal guru, who was convicted in the attack on Indian Parliament in 2001. I am watching the footage of protest all over news channel, and I realized that the question they coined was “why Afzal Guru has been hanged?”, there is nothing wrong in protesting against this, I mean if I tell a bunch of kids that a person is hanged, they will definitely get hurt and will criticize the event frankly (Especially when they have freedom to express), but what if I tell them the act he was involved in? And in today’s scenario I think JNU students are acting like the kids who don’t know the reason behind it, well I think the reason is pretty logical, ‘because he was caught during assaulting people’. And I also read that JNU students are against the law that authorized the killing of Afzal Guru, and I think it is good that they are willing to show some mercy for the people who are willing to kill them, but it’s the responsibility of constitution that every person in this country should live a safe life, and I think that is the reason why Afzal Guru got sentenced to death.
Then next big news I read was, family members of Afzal Guru were not informed about the day on which execution was going to occur. Well this is some genuine thing to be protested for, if JNU students are against this they could raise their voice against the authorized people who were responsible for fixture. What I don’t understand is why JNU students are screaming slogans of destruction of INDIA.

One more issue that the JNU students are unhappy that they think India is acting like a dictator nation to keep Kashmir under its dominance. Well I think we all know the condition of Pakistan’s economy, we just need a bit of common sense to realize that Kashmir will get destroyed if it becomes a part of Pakistan. And if it becomes a free state, terrorists will continue to kill the Kashmiris and the only change that will happen is there will be no Indian Army to save Kashmiri people. JNU people are saying no one is asking Kashmiri people what they want, well that is a good thing to raise the voice for. And because I don’t have knowledge about what kashmiri people want, I won’t comment on this thing. But again the question arises why the slogans against the whole India are being shouted in the university? If your message is “Afzal Guru must have received proper punishment and his family should have got the message” and “kashmiri people should have freedom to speak up their minds”, then why sentences like ‘Kashmir ke azadi se Bharat ke barbadi tak, jang hogi, jang hogi’ and ‘har ghar me Afzal peda hoga’, are being announced? Many people got angry because of these slogans and off course they should. But more than anger, their hearts are filled with Pain. And personally I am not angry too, I am just hurt. It’s like you are a member of a family and other member is praying for the destruction of a family.        

One more thing I find illogical, if people are against the constitution of this nation, then why they are using the law “freedom to speech” as a shield made by same constitution? The student union leader got arrested for antinational activity, and I am not happy for that too, off course we all got “freedom to express” but it’s our responsibility to not use any words that can hurt emotional side of other people. And for the same reason the right ‘freedom of speech’ has got its own limitations, and because of those rules Kanhaiya Kumar and few other people are got arrested. If law is broken, proper action with no mercy should be taken against the culprit.
