Some 450 (and counting) students and faculty members from law schools around the country, as well as practising lawyers, have signed onto a list to express their solidarity with the persecuted students of Jawaharlal Nehru University as well as their condemnation of the visual media’s one-sided take on the events that’ve been playing out at the premises of the institution for over a week now. The signatories, a full list of whom is pasted below, condemn “the police clampdown on the JNU premises” and express “solidarity with the students and faculty at JNU amongst members of the legal fraternity”. The later expression is of particular significance – at the Patiala House Court on February 15, some lawyers were seen assaulting JNU faculty and students, provoking wide outrage.


We, the undersigned, as current students, alumni and professors of law universities, stand in strong opposition to the recent events which have unfolded at JNU, especially those involving the arrest of the JNUSU President, among other disproportionate measures. We strongly disapprove of the free reign given to the police to question, detain and arrest any student or faculty member for voicing their opinions.  

We believe that university spaces are forums to discuss, question and debate fundamental political issues from different perspectives. University campuses are, and should be, spaces where people can peacefully voice their opinions, raise questions and disagree with each other on issues which concern us all as a part of the polity. The only way to uphold the ethics and values of safe spaces on university campuses, is to counter through dialogue and debate, not state backed violence. What a university campus cannot be is a site for stifling dissent and opinions with the threat of violence and a state backed misuse of the Indian Penal Code especially that of provisions such as sedition which were earlier used against many of our freedom fighters, those we eulogise as defenders of our “national” identity.

We are concerned about the recent spate of incidents (including those that led to Rohith Vemula’s death at the University of Hyderabad) wherein students affiliated to certain political organisations, have repeatedly violated the safe spaces of universities, targeting those who voice opinions and stake claims that do not find favour with the ruling dispensation. We strongly urge that such actions be denounced and we are once again allowed to reclaim university spaces where counter-narratives that challenge the mainstream are respected, dialogue is nurtured and future leaders are born.

As law people, we also strongly condemn the action of certain lawyers who manhandled the students and faculty members of JNU present at the Patiala House Court premises on February 15, 2016. We regret to see that the very courts of justice, to whom people look up to for upholding the rights of the ordinary citizen and acting as a fair arbitrator, have become battlegrounds for participants of the legal system to violently express their bias and prejudices.

We demand that the JNU campus be restored to normalcy and the police be withdrawn from all parts of the campus. We demand that the JNUSU President, Kanhaiya Kumar be released immediately and all charges be dropped against him.

  • Vinay Tandon

    How does one know that the so called ‘lawyers’ who beat up students and journos at the Courts are / were not hired goons? The names and details of those caught on camera should be made public through FB. Of course one doesn’t expect the GoI police to do that. I suppose they are busy trying to hide Shri Shri OP Sharma?

  • Aditya Bondyopadhyay

    Hi I am a lawyer and I was not aware of this petition. Now it is closed. I unequivocally support the condemnation of the acts perpetrated by rogues from my profession who have brought disgrace to the gown. I also think the arrest of JNUSU president is an act of fascist vendetta and a ploy by the fascist establishment to browbeat all universities into submission to their ideological straitjacket. This needs to be opposed at all costs.
