Babri demolition anniversary: JNU cancels Subramanian Swamy's talk on Ram Temple

The seminar titled "Why Ram Temple in Ayodhya" was organised by Vivekananda Vichar Manch, a right-leaning group comprising of students from university, and BJP leader Subramanian Swamy was invited to speak at the event. While the JNU administration cancelled Subramanian Swamy's lecture, a talk by Communist Party of India (Marxist) former general secretary Prakash Karat will take place today at Sabarmati Mess at 9:30 pm. They, however, added that academic discussion on various themes are always permitted that contribute to enhancement of knowledge and social order.

Swamy was supposed to deliver a talk on "Why Ram Mandir in Ayodhya" at Koyna Hostel. According to the organisers, they wanted to "salute the legendary fighter and martyrs" of the Ram Janmabhoomi movement.

Reports on Wednesday said that a talk by Swamy, which was scheduled at the university, was cancelled. "My arguments on Ram Mandir are so powerful that they won't be able to stand it".

The Karat talk is being organised by the JNU Students' Union (JNUSU) and also features Jayati Ghosh and Kavita Krishnan. It was later called off after the administration faced charges of being "biased".

The Supreme Court on Tuesday chose to continue the final hearing of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case on February 8 next year, brushing aside the plea of the Sunni Wakf Board to postpone it till after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections over concerns that the final verdict would have political and electoral repercussions.

A high-voltage drama marked Tuesday's hearing with lawyers representing the Sunni Waqf Board and the Babri Masjid Action Committee, virtually threatening to walk out of the proceedings as the bench asked senior advocate CS Vaidyanathan, representing the deity Ram Lalla Virajman, to commence his submissions in the case. JNU rector III Rana P Singh also did not respond to calls and text messages.

The dean of students Umesh Ashok Kadam could not be reached despite multiple attempts to contact him.
