New Delhi, Feb 13: Upset over the anti-national activities in the campus of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi, a group of ex-army officials have threatened to return their degrees as mark of protest.
"It is difficult to be associated with the university which is turning into a hub of 'anti-national' activities," said officers of the 54th NDA Course to JNU VC, media reported.
All the cadets, who join the National Defence Academy (NDA) after 10+2, are conferred with a graduation degree of JNU after the completion of the course.
JNU hit the news after a group of students shouted anti-India and pro-Afzal Guru slogans during an event organised to mark Afzal Guru's hanging anniversary.
The JNU students had called execution of Afzal Guru's as "judicial killing". 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru was hanged on 9 February 2013.
