New Delhi, Feb 22: I have not made 800 calls as is being alleged in the media, said Umar Khalid who according to the Delhi police is one of the organisers of the Afzal Guru event at the JNU. Khalid, along with 4 others against whom a look out circular was issued returned to the JNU campus.
"We are back as we have done no wrong, he said. I do not know why the media says that I had made 800 calls to the Gulf or Kashmir. I have not made any such calls," he said. Furthermore, he also added that not once in seven years that he has been at the JNU had he felt like a Muslim. "But in the last 10 days (since the controversy broke out) I have been made to feel like a Muslim," he said.
Khalid along with Anant Prakash, Ashutosh Kumar, Rama Naga and Anirban Bhattacharya returned to the campus.
Government needs an excuse to attack us:
He also added that he has no links with any terrorist organisations as has been alleged in the media. It is just not true.
He also added that the government needed an excuse to attack the university. "The attack on us is not because of the event that was organised on February 9. It is because the government needed an excuse to attack us. What has happened to me is a result of media trial. They have said all sorts of things about me. I am also very upset that they attacked my sister on the social media. My family is going through a lot," he said.
The charges against me are ridiculous. I have no links with any terrorist organisation. All this is part of a campaign against us and we have nothing to hide. Khalid is the most wanted accused, according to the Delhi police.
