CONCERNS OVER UGC DRAFT GUIDELINES: A CRITICAL LOOK
Sorce: Pintrest

In the heart of Jawaharlal Nehru University, a gathering of nearly 100-150 students recently took place. Students were standing together, torches in hand, to protest against what they believe are unfair new rules laid out in the revised Chief Proctor Office (CPO) manual. It led to Jawaharlal Nehru University protest by students against the University.

Why Are They Upset?

To understand why they are upset, we need to dive into these new rules. According to them, students could face fines up to ₹20,000 if they choose to protest in specific areas deemed off-limits. Saying things considered “anti-national” could cost them ₹10,000. Now, imagine being at your school, expressing your thoughts, and suddenly you’re handed a hefty fine for doing just that. It doesn’t seem fair, does it?

Protest in Lights

Now, let’s talk about the torch march. Picture a group of students walking together at night, each holding a torch. It’s not just a march; it’s a symbol. A symbol of unity, of standing up against something that is not right. Imagine your class deciding to walk together to make everyone notice that something isn’t fair – that’s exactly what these students did.

Why Are They Doing This?

These students want everyone to know that they have a right to express their thoughts. It’s like the freedom you have to share your ideas in class without the fear of getting into trouble. They strongly believe they should be able to express their opinions without facing harsh consequences.

Staying Strong

The leaders among these students are not just voicing their concerns; they are promising to keep fighting for what they believe in. They’ve even hinted at the possibility of a hunger strike if things don’t change after the Jawaharlal Nehru University protest.

Protecting JNU’s Way

Aishe Ghosh, the president of JNUSU, talked about JNU’s “democratic ethos.” What does that mean? It means they want things to be fair for everyone, much like taking turns in a game to ensure everyone gets a chance. That’s what they want for their university – fairness and equality.

Talking It Out

Students are not about protests and marches. Students are open to dialogue. Dialogue is like having a big talk where everyone shares their thoughts. They are saying, “We want to talk, but if nothing changes, we’ll keep on working together to make sure our voices are heard.”

A Lesson in Unity and Expression

Their are certain things we can learn from this. These students are standing up for their rights, much like you would if something at your school didn’t feel fair. It’s teamwork to make things better. Even though they are addressing serious issues, they use creative ways, like torch marches, to ensure everyone knows they won’t stay silent about what they believe is right. This is how students at JNU are making their voices heard – by standing together, torches ablaze, for what they believe in.
