Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt slams JNU through poetry

first_imgReacting to the JNU controversy, ace wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt has written a patriotic poem in Hindi that has gone viral on the internet. The poem criticises the alleged anti-national activities on the varsity’s campus. It was uploaded on Dutt’s official Facebook page on February 13 and has received tens of thousands of likes and hundreds of comments since then.In his poem, the London Olympics bronze medal winner has compared ‘anti-national elements’ to Mahmud of Ghazni and even questioned their Right to Expression when they choose to demean the country. The Padma Shri recipient also accused the students and their supporters of dishonouring the sacrifice of Indian soldiers, including Lance Naik Hanamanthappa – one of 10 soldiers who died in an avalanche in Siachen earlier this month.Here’s a translation of dutt’s poem:”Those who are singing praises of Afzal Guru have the blood of Mahmud Ghazni in them. They consider themselves as enemies of the country in which they are born. What sort of freedom of speech is this that permits one to abuse Mother India. What sort of freedom of expression allows one to violate the honour of my country? If Afzal is martyr then who is Hanamanthappa?”Also readGerman student writes an ode on JNU rowlast_img read more
