Gurmehar Kaur and her Words:
Gurmehar Kaur said in her video “If there was no war between us, my father would still be here,” Gurmehar asked Indian and Pakistani governments to “stop pretending” and “solve the problem”. She also said, “I am questioning the caliber of leadership of both nations; we cannot dream of becoming a first world country with third world leadership.”
Why is Gurmehar Kaur in the news now?
Kaur is part of the ‘Save DU campaign’, after the conflicts in Ramjas College a week ago where activists of the AVBP supposedly conflicted with the students, where JNU students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid were welcomed for seminar. While Khalid and Rashid did not turn up for the occasion, ABVP students still proceeded with their brutal challenge, stoning the course hall. The Save DU campaign supports the right to freedom of students. Her poster protest image, shared on Facebook, reads, “I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me. #StudentsAgainstABVP”. The viral post incited reactions from the ruling establishment as well as from politicians cutting across party lines.
Top Statements on This Issue:
Kaur’s campaign has taken a political turn, after various leaders commented on her campaign. Key among those is Union Minister of State for Home Affairs of India Kiren Rijiju who quipped: “Who’s polluting this young girl’s mind?” He also said “freedom of expression is not a license to shout anti-national slogans in campuses. Criticise the government but don’t abuse the motherland” and that “Kargil war must not be exploited.”
Today Rijiju said “souls of martyr’s must be crying following students being misguided”. BJP MP Pratap Simha also stoked controversy after comparing Kaur to fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. He posted a picture collage on Twitter with Kaur on one side and Ibrahim on the other side.
“Against the tyranny of fear we stand with our students. For every voice raised in anger, intolerance and ignorance there will be a Gurmehar Kaur”.
Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu raised questions against the opposition on Monday for inciting violence on campuses, adding that freedom of speech doesn’t mean the right to offend.
Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari hit out at Rijiju for making controversial remarks against Gurmehar Kaur. “You may not like what the person thinks but trolling, mindless threats… trolling emanating from people whom the Prime Minister follows. This is the worst form of state intimidation and this is not how democracies and democratic countries function.
Meanwhile, cricketer Virender Sehwag and actor Randeep Hooda also waded into the controversy. While Hooda said Kaur is being used as a pawn, Sehwag appeared to take a potshot at an earlier video of her. In the video, Kaur had held up a placard saying ‘Pakistan did not kill my dad, war did’. Sehwag posted a picture with a placard saying ‘I didn’t score two triple centuries, my bat did’.
