New Delhi: Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union president and a young leftist Kanhaiya Kumar who had come under heavy criticism for his statement advocating differentiation between 1984 and 2002 massacres (read related news below), has offered a clarification maintaining that he was “misinterpreted” once again.
Kanhaiya Kumar wrote on social networking website Facebook: “I have been misinterpreted and misrepresented yet again. There isn’t an iota of doubt that Emergency represents one of the darkest periods of Indian democracy. My organization AISF strongly opposed and fought against the state repression during Emergency. Both 1984 and 2002 were indeed state led pogroms for which justice is still awaited. The current central government is relentlessly carrying forward its fascist agenda using state power, as visible in the recent authoritarian actions against students and all voices of dissent across the country. What we now witness is unprecedented – a form of undeclared emergency“.
