After ‘Nationalism’ Lectures, JNU to Have Presentations on ‘Azadi’ – The New Indian Express

Now that the month-long nationalism lecture series has concluded and three of our comrades who were in jail in a sedition case for raising their voices are also back on campus, we will begin the 2nd lecture series,” said Ajay Patnaik, President of JNU Teachers Association (JNUTA).

Following JNU Students Union president Kanhiaya Kumar’s speech on his return to campus, an “azadi anthem” demanding freedom from various ills of the society including poverty, casteism, corruption and dowry harassment, has garnered huge popularity on campus.

The earlier series on nationalism saw eminent academicians including Romila Thapar, Harbans Mukhia, Tanika Sarkar, Jayati Ghosh, Prabhat Patnaik, Amit Sengupta, Mridula Mukherjee, Makaranad Paranjpe and Apporvanand, among others, delivering lectures at the administration block, which has been the protest venue for students ever since Kanhaiya was arrested on February 12.
