Hindutva forces can target Kanhaiya: JNU student's mother Meena Devi worried about his safety

Bihat (Bihar): Away from the bustle of International Women's Day celebrations, Meena Devi, mother of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union president Kanhaiya Kumar, is worried over the life threat to her son and has demanded adequate security for him.

"I am tense for my son's safety and security following death threat to him by Hinduvta forces," Meena Devi, in her early 50s, told IANS on Tuesday.

"If Kanhaiya was attacked in the court, who will guarantee us of his security when he has returned to JNU campus and will visit outside campus," Meena Devi, who works at an Anganwadi centre, said.

"My son is also son of the country, his security is concern of the government. Kanhaiya's life is under threat, I am worried," she said. "We can only ask the government to ensure his safety and security. It is for the government to decide."

Meena Devi recalled that she, her husband Jai Shankar Singh and other family members were happy after Kanhaiya was released on bail.

"Our happiness did not last long... We are afraid for his safety and security," she said.

"Hinduvta forces can target Kanhaiya for his pro-people stand and his vocal support for freedom from hunger to poverty and casteism," she added.

Kanhaiya's home village Bihat is hardly three km from Barauni town in Begusarai district, considered a stronghold of the Left politics in Bihar.
