Opinion: Should a tank be kept in the campus of JNU?Since 1970, the students of National Defence Academy (NDA), Khadakvasla, have been getting their Graduation degree from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). Till now, more than 40,000 NDA students have received their Graduation degree from JNU. Many of them later sacrificed their life to safeguard the safety and secutiry of the country and countrymen. JNU must be genuinely proud of these great alumni.
Instead JNU is nowadays known for the slogan "Bharat tere tukde honge". JNU is infamous for distribution of sweets after killing of armed forces personnel by the Naxalites. JNU comes to limelight due to various anti-Indian 'intellectual' activities in the campus.
Under the circumstances mentioned above, the present Vice-Chancellor of JNU has proposed to keep a tank in the campus of JNU to instill a sense of patriotism in the mind of students of the University. The tank would also be a symbol of respect to the alumni who have dedicated themselves for the service of the country.
I fully support the proposal. What about other Members of ISC? What do they think about the proposal of keeping a tank in the campus of JNU? (In this connection, we must remember that there is a replica of Mig fighter aircraft in the campus of Jamia Millia Islamia, another Central University in Delhi.)
