While one JNU Professor has claimed that there was nothing wrong in the calls for ‘azadi’ made during the JNU event on 9 Feb, another professor smells a conspiracy behind some of the indefensible sloganeering which occurred that day. These statements lend further credence to the view that the virulently anti-national event at JNU on 9 Feb had the backing of significant sections of JNU faculty and some leading Lutyens ‘intellectuals’.
Jayati Ghosh, a professor of economics has claimed that as per ‘plausible sources’ 3 masked IB men were actually behind the anti-national slogans shouted during the JNU event on 9 Feb. “It was a constructed conspiracy to defame the university and it was planned at a higher level. Among those present at the event, three masked men who raised those ‘anti-national’ slogans were apparently from IB. This is what we suspect. We are more important than we think… we are really a target. This is why we have to defend ourselves,” Ghosh said while addressing the students during a lecture on “anti-national policies of NDA”. The lecture was part of the “nationalism teaching” series which are being conducted at JNU’.
Nivedita Menon, professor at the Centre for Comparative Politics & Political Theory, speaking during the same “nationalism teaching” series, said that the world accepts that Bharat is illegally occupying Kashmir, hence the slogans raised for ‘azadi’ (freedom) were legitimate.

Deep rooted hatred of Hindus drives these ‘teachers’
A video has emerged on social media which reveals Prof. Menon ‘teaching’ her class that Hindu society is the most violent in the world. Her absolute contempt for Hindu civilization is apparent and one shudders to think what impact such bigotry would have on impressionable young minds.

With teachers like these, no wonder that JNU is mass-producing brain-washed students like Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya who think that Bharat should be broken into pieces as it is ruled by an elite Brahminical class that is ‘oppressing’ minorities, tribals, women and backward castes.
The conspiracy theory to tarnish IB (Intelligence Bureau) should also be seen as part of a wider attempt to discredit the agency as the decade old Ishrat Jahan case unravels.
Jayati Ghosh of JNU casting aspersions on IB is cunningly calculated to raise question mark over IB integrity as Irshad conspiracy unravels.

Yesterday Yakub, today Kanhaiya?
Not surprisingly, dig a little deep and the facts come tumbling out. It is not surprising that the Professor Ghosh was also part of the eco-system that went into overdrive last year to prevent the hanging of convicted terrorist Yakub Memon, responsible for the serial bombing of Mumbai in 1993.
Deep ‘Breaking India’ Eco-System
But what is most disturbing is the money trail unearthed by @sighbaboo which reveals the web of foreign funding received by NGOs involving Prof. Ghosh. This is a pattern observed in most prominent ‘intellectuals’ who are often found siding with Breaking India forces. It is pertinent to note that the Union Government implemented a new Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) from 1 May 2011 to replace the FCRA of 1976 – as it was found that many foreign funded NGOs had indulged in conversions directly or indirectly, created communal tension, supported sedition or diverted funds for purposes other than for which funds had been received.
- Professors Jayati Ghosh & CP Chandrasekhar started the Delhi branch of International Development Economics Associates (IDEA) funded by the controversial Ford Foundation. As per this report, IDEA’s Headquarters is in London.
- In 2006, it sent money via FCRA to Economic Research Foundation (ERF), JNU. ERF is an FCRA-NGO (DL/231660569) with Prof. Ghosh as a Trustee. In 2007, ERF got ~41 lakh from Interact Worldwide-UK. In 2008, ERF got ~1.5 Crore from Ford Foundation, IDEA etc and similar amounts in other years.
- She is also Executive Committee Member of CWDS (Centre for Women’s Development Studies), Delhi. This is also an FCRA NGO (DL/231650186),which got 5 lakhs from Ford Foundation in 2009, but is a primary franchisee of IDRC-Canada & PLAN-UK.
- Prof. Jayati Ghosh is also in the Board of Trustees of CBGA, Delhi. CBGA=Centre for Budget & Governance Accountability, another FCRA NGO (DL/231661020) which advocates and campaigns for the disastrous RTE that is forcing private Hindu run schools to shut down.
The money trail is well summed up by this tweet-

‘Intellectuals’, Media Lap Up The Conspiracy Theories, Stay Silent On Venom Spewed
Sadly, leading ‘intellectuals’ like SC lawyer Prashant Bhushan & TOI columnist Sagarika Ghose lapped up the conspiracy theory postulated by Prof. Ghosh which will only erode public confidence in our intelligence agencies who are working day & night to guard the country. But the same individuals maintain a studied silence on the anti-Hindu bigotry spewed by likes of Prof. Menon.
The conspiracy to ‘shut down’ JNU was hatched by govt & channels before Afzal event. Were sloganeers brought by IB!?https://t.co/CC3TJv45Xo

The intent behind this article is not to personally target anyone, but to expose the influential forces at work to undermine Bharat from within, who aim to systematically demonize and eradicate its Hindu identity. The challenge before all rational citizens is clear, and we have to fight this battle democratically, constitutionally and with perseverance. Nothing less than the future of this nation, Hindu civilization and our future generations is at stake.
