Patriotism Is In My Blood Says Rahul Gandhi

“The RSS is trying to impose its flawed ideology on the students of the nation and we won’t let that happen”, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said on Thursday (February 18). “This nation will prosper because of our students’ imagination .. imposing an ideology on them will not benefit the nation,” the Congress VP told reporters after meeting President Pranab Mukherjee about the events at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) that have snowballed into a major controversy about free speech. Last week, a JNU student leader, Kanhaiya Kumar, was arrested on charges of sedition for alleged anti-national slogans during an event during which there were protests against the 2013 hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. “If anyone is involved in anti-national activities, he should be punished but nationalism can’t be an excuse to impose a particular ideology on students, ” Rahul said. “Nationalism is in my blood. I have seen my family making sacrifices again and again for this country.” Rahul added that recent incidents of violence are creating a bad impression about India abroad. “Recent incidents are damaging India’s image, that is why the Congress has approached the President of India,” he said.
