JNU should be renamed to Modi National University (MNU), says North-West Delhi MP Hans Raj Hans

This is not the first time that the proposal to rename JNU has come up in the public debate. In 2016, BJP Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy had proposed to rename the university in the name of Freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose.

Popular singer and North-West Delhi MP Hans Raj Hans on Saturday suggested the renaming of Jawaharlal Nehru University after Prime Minister Narendra Modi post the success of abrogation of Article 370, reports ANI.

Speaking on the government’s decision to abrogate Article 370 and bifurcate Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories, the legendary Punjabi singer during his visit to the university, said that the JNU should be renamed as MNU.


“Dua karo sab aman se rahein, bomb na chale…Hamare buzurgon ne galatiyan ki hain hum bhugat rahe hain…Main kehta hoon iska naam MNU kar do, Modi ji ke naam pe bhi to kuch hona chahiye…(Pray that everyone remains peaceful and there are no explosions. We are paying for the mistakes of our ancestors. I suggest we name it (JNU) MNU (Modi National University). There should be something under Modi’s name too),” he said.

This is not the first time that the proposal to rename JNU has come up in the public debate. In 2016, BJP Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy had proposed to rename the university in the name of Freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose.

The Jawaharlal Nehru University, named after India’s first Prime Minister Nehru was founded in 1969. The controversial university is known for its radical, ultra-left wing ideology, which is also the hot-bed for various anti-national movements. The JNU is also the ideological cradle for various Naxal and Maoist leaders since the Naxal movement began in India.
