Why has JNU become the centre of controversy?
While Jawaharlal Nehru University is among India’s prominent institutions for higher learning, it has been the news for the wrong reasons lately.
Jawaharlal Nehru University is among India’s most prominent institutions for higher learning. However, for some time now, it has been in the news for the wrong reasons. On March 25, the vice-chancellor of the university alleged that some students barged into his home and even scared his wife. He later said that he forgives the students involved in the act and would not file an official complaint. This is just one of the controversies swirling around the university.
