Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said the ‘anti-national’ protests at Jawaharlal Nehru University had the support of LeT chief Hafiz Saeed, remarks which have led the opposition to demand that the Union Minister back his statement with substantial proof.
“It’s unfortunate that the JNU incident has been backed by Lashkar Chief Hafiz Saeed. Nation must also accept the reality that incident that took place in JNU, has been supported by Hafiz Saeed. This is unfortunate,” Singh said.
Speaking at a press conference in the national capital, Singh said his government would not spare anyone who dares to raise anti-national slogans. “Have given clear instructions that strict action must be taken against anyone who’s found guilty, but innocent people must not be harassed,” Singh said, adding that “anyone who raises anti-India slogans or tries to put a question mark on national unity, will not be spared by this government.”
