New Delhi, Feb 15: Controversial Hindutva leader Sadhvi Prachi today visited JNU to express solidarity with ABVP members who are protesting against an event on campus in support of Afzal Guru, where she attacked Rahul Gandhi for his solidarity with the students on this issue.
"Rahul's mother needs to answer the nation what the definition of nationalism is. They live on India's money and praise Pakistan. All those who are supporting these anti-nationals should also be punished," she told reporters outside JNU.
While Sadhvi claimed that she was not allowed to go inside the campus, the varsity authorities maintained that neither the administration nor the security was approached for her entry into the campus.
"Freedom of expression does not mean you can say anything against the country...Rahul's membership of the Lok Sabha be terminated for supporting anti-national elements. D Raja's daughter, who was also part of the protest, should be arrested," Sadhvi said.
The ABVP members staged parallel protests on campus shouting slogans against the left-leaning students who are supporting JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar, who is in police custody in a sedition case over an event held on campus against hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.
Rahul Gandhi had joined the left-wing leaders Sitaram Yechury and D Raja on JNU campus on Saturday where he compared the Modi government's rule to that of Hitler's regime and asked the students to be not "bullied" by the government.
