Ten emeritus professors of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Tuesday wrote to Vice-Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar saying they were disturbed by the curbs on freedom of speech on the campus.

The letter said the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus had always been a space where free speech was allowed and speakers from outside the university were also invited.

“As emeritus professors we are disturbed by the turn of events at the campus. The university has always been a space where we allowed free discussion of issues raised by students and faculty,” the letter read.

“In the course of such discussion whether in seminars or at other informal gatherings, speakers from both within and from outside the university were invited to participate.”
