Summery: Addressing a gathering of students on nationalism programme, a JNU professor Nivedita Menon, who teaches at the Centre for Comparative Politics and Political Theory at the International Studies school, said, “We believe that democracy (Rashtraraj) is a very strong thing, but if it was so strong then why few students, who raised such (anti-India) slogans were arrested.” She went on to say that, “If such incidents happen then the democracy is not so strong as we claim because tanks and guns are used to keep the democracy intact and strong.”
 Professor Menon also made some remarks on Kashmir.
”After Independence, the accession of Kashmir was done following the India-Pakistan war on the pretext that a plebiscite will be conducted when the situation gets back to normal and since then it (janmat sangrah) has not happened,” she reportedly said in her speech.
“We all know that the world today believes that India is illegally occupying Kashmir,”  as reported by news Channels.
