New Delhi: VHP on Tuesday said it would be better to shut JNU down if stern action is not taken against those who raised anti-India slogans in the university over Afzal Guru's hanging.
"The way anti-social elements have dared to raise anti-India slogans in JNU and Press Club in Delhi, the government or the police should sternly act against the accused.
"In case the JNU authorities or the police fail to take action against such anti-national elements, then we would urge the vice chancellor and the government that it would be better to shut the varsity in national interest," VHP joint general secretary Surender Jain said.
He claimed that JNU has for some time turned into a centre of terrorists, separatists and anti-Hindu elements.
The way there has been a sudden love for Afzal Guru for the last two days, such elements are testing the patience of nationalists and patriots, he said.
Marking the death anniversary of Guru, a group of students on Tuesday held an event on the campus and shouted slogans against government for hanging him.
Delhi Police today registered a case of sedition in connection with the event at JNU.
