JNU Students’ Union cries ‘Hindi imposition’ for introduction of Hindi in BA and B.Tech courses

The controversial student body JNUSU on Monday opposed a discussion on making Hindi compulsory for B.A. and B.Tech students, listed on the agenda for the 151st Academic Council meeting.

On Monday, the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU), dominated by ultra-left wing groups came up with a new controversy by protesting against the introduction of Hindi by as a compulsory subject at the undergraduate BA and BTech courses.

According to the reports, the controversial student body JNUSU on Monday opposed a discussion on making Hindi compulsory for B.A. and B.Tech students, listed on the agenda for the 151st Academic Council meeting.

According to the JNUSU, the agenda item was in response to an earlier letter received in 2018 October from the Ministry of Human Resource Development, “in which it has been requested that along with making Hindi a compulsory subject in all the schools and universities of India, appropriate and necessary action should be taken to encourage the usage of Hindi in the government offices as well”.

“In a letter issued by MHRD in 2018 to all universities, Hindi is mentioned as the national language! Furthermore, it issues directives to implement Hindi as a compulsory course in all bachelor level programs. It must be reiterated that India does not have a national language. Rather the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution lists 22 official languages in accordance with the diverse and plural nature of our country,” the statement said.

Last year in February, the JNUSU had hit the streets after the university had made 75% attendance compulsory for students of all courses and had also asked teachers to mark attendance with the signature of students on a sheet that is to be submitted to the central office every day.
