Leftist groups violently disrupt screening of film on ‘Love Jihad’, attack security guard on JNU campus

Students belonging to the JNUSU (JNU Students’ Union) and Leftist organisations protested against screening of a documentary film based on how love marriages were being used as tool by Islamists in Kerala on the JNU campus yesterday. According to reports, the JNUSU students tried to disrupt the screening, and when opposed, started violent attacks on other students and security personnel.

In the scuffle that ensued, many students have been reported injured and a security person is said to be in critical condition.

The title of the documentary was ‘In The Name of Love’ and it is made by National Award winning director Sudipta Sen.

The screening was organised by Global Indian Foundation. Though many media outlets have reported the clashes as the fight between JNUSU and ABVP members, many in social media are insisting that the violence and disruption in screening were led by left backed JNUSU students and leaders. There are sources claiming that the left backed students, even after repeated requests by the organisers of the screening and the director of the documentary, did not let the screening continue and started violent attacks.

In the videos of the clash, JNUSU members were seen disrupting the screening and creating a ruckus. It is also ironic that left organisations, which are always so vocal about the freedom of expression, are protesting the screening of a film that is reportedly based on case studies and real-life incidents.

Ex JNUSU President Mohit Pandey reportedly ran his car over a security guard who is said to be critical. A student has also been severely injured in the violence. Though many media outlets and portals have even started blaming the ABVP for the violence, the images, videos and social media posts suggest otherwise.

Given how many media outlets had tried to portray a leftist goon as ABVP member earlier, such claims by people on the social media about violence being perpetrated exclusively the the leftists cannot be rejected.

The documentary movie focuses on the issue of love jihad going on in Kerala where Hindu girls are trapped to get married and then forcefully converted to Islam. Love jihad has been a real concern in Kerala where many such girls have been converted and some even sent to ISIS to serve as sex slaves. The NIA is currently investigating the cases in the state as many radical groups behind love jihad are believed to be in contact with ISIS.

This is not for the first time that Leftists at JNU have indulged in stifling freedom of expression. In December 2015, they tried to ban Baba Ramdev’s entry on the campus. Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri too had to face protests when he tried to showcase his movie Buddha In A Traffic Jam at JNU. The leftist goons in January 2017 had forced the university to cancel a speaker’s invite due to ‘BJP connection’. In April that year, goons pelted the cars of a professor with stones because he paid tributes to CRPF martyrs fighting Naxals.
