Chandigarh: The controversial Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Haryana sports cum health minister Anil Vij who is famous for his vilifying statements on Wednesday said that those who are supporting Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur for her stand against the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarathi Parishad (ABVP) a student wing of the BJP, were pro-Pakistan and should be thrown out of the country.
“Those who are supporting Gurmehar Kaur are all pro-Pakistan. Such people have no right to live in India and they should be thrown out of the country,” the minister, supposedly, told the media.
The Lady Shri Ram College student launched a social media campaign against the repressive and violent measures unleashed by the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), student body of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s (RSS), in the aftermath of the February 22 violence at the Ramjas College on the Delhi University campus.
The ABVP activists have been accused of assaulting students and teachers.
Facing death and rape threats, and criticism from several quarters including union ministers, Gurmehar Kaur, daughter of a slain Army officer, on Tuesday announced withdrawing the campaign.
