Does Jammu University Vice-Chancellor know?
'Seditionists' Enjoying Official Position

early times report
Jammu, June 20: The University of Jammu was a great centre of learning not so-long-ago. Things deteriorated when the BJP-led NDA Government planted the well-known supporter of Kashmiri autonomists and Pakistan Amitabh Mattoo in this great institution of learning. He promoted some of the dubious characters on the campus. He won over a few disgruntled academicians by arranging for them foreign tours so that they could make common cause with him and tell the international community that the Kashmiri struggle against India was secular and that it was basically New Delhi that was responsible for the "alienation" of the people of the state. At least three Jammu University teachers attended the anti-India seminars organized at different countries, including Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Nepal, by PUGWASH. Mattoo arranged everything for them and his objective was very clear. His objective was to create on the university campus a strong anti-India group so that he could play dubious games at the behest of Islamabad, Kashmiri separatists and other anti-India forces all in the name of peace. Mattoo was responsible for the holding of several controversial seminars on the University campus itself.
Mattoo did leave the University of Jammu some three year and six months ago but only after polluting the campus and producing a few mercenaries who have been hobnobbing with anti-India elements ever since then and putting forth highly divisive solutions. They have been speaking the language of Pakistan and Kashmiri separatists. One of them is Jammu University's Professor of Political Science, whose ancestors migrated to Jammu from POJK in 1947 in the wake of the communal
partition of India to save their life, dignity and honour. This Professor, who participated in the two-day anti-India seminar on "Jammu and Kashmir and the Federal Models of Shared Sovereignty" spoke against the Indian Constitution and in favour of Pakistan and those seeking greater autonomy and self-rule for Kashmir. The seminar was held in the University of Kashmir on June 17 and 18.
Everyone was impressed with her formulations. That she impressed all other participants, including some anti-India commentators, could be seen from the fact that one of the leading Kashmir-based daily commended her editorially. The editorial (June 19) was titled "Towards Resolution".
It would be appropriate to quote the relevant portion from that editorial to put things in perspective. The relevant portion read like this: "Many new viewpoints were put forth, but the central idea was more inclined to National Conference's idea of autonomy and opposition party People's Democratic Party's Self Rule. Rekha Chowdhary, who teaches political science at Jammu University argued that federalism and more autonomy to the region is a way forward where India and Pakistan will have a say on Kashmir region, but the new scheme of things won't affect their sovereignty. What she argued basically was an amalgamation of autonomy with that of self rule adjoined by more CBMs".
It is hardly necessary to catalogue here the implications of what this Jammu University Professor said. Suffice it to say that the said Professor sided with those who have been working overtime to wreck the Indian state by de-linking not only Kashmir but also Jammu and Ladakh from India, thus outraging the sensitivities of the people of Jammu and Ladakh, nay the entire Indian nation.
The Jammu University authorities just can't allow any of its teachers to indulge in break-India activities or to speak against the Indian Constitution. They have to isolate and rid the University of Jammu of all undesirable elements. The authorities need to bring these dubious characters to justice so that a right message goes that they would not tolerate anything non-sense and that those found guilty of preaching sedition would be dealt with sternly as per the law of the land. It is indeed disturbing that the seditionists are roaming about freely on the university campus and polluting its environment. Action against them is also in the interest of the student community.
