The JNU student community is coming together. India would follow.

      What is the message being conveyed by burning a book in an educational institution ? What about verses in Bible and Quran. And you talk hypocritically about freedom of speech and lack of tolerance. If few lines of “Manu smriti” that never had much authority over Hindus are against women, then of course you can condemn it. What about the progressive aspects that speak for the welfare of women, old, widows, poor etc.

    I think it is a great step. ABVP units across the country should do this to show that the critics of BJP/RSS/ABVP are wrong when they accuse these organizations of being pro-caste system. Even PM Modiji should organize a public burning of this book (just like the way he has been leading the Swatch Bharat Abhiyan) to show that BJP stands for a clean casteless united India. All those who support caste should be booked as anti-national.
