Guwahati,30 September: On the second day of Pragjyotishpur Literary Festival 2023, a fascinating program was organized on the topic of several discussions on literature, book launches etc. as well as conversations with the authors. Dr. Anshu Joshi, Professor, School of International, Jawaharlal Nehru University, while participating in an interaction with the author conducted by eminent author-researcher Dr. Namrata Pathak, made strong remarks against fake secularism and love jihad. In this discussion on the much-read novel titled “JNU Mein Ek Ladki Rehti Thi”, Dr. Anshu Joshi, in response to the curious question of Dr. Namrata Pathak, the author exposed the hypocrisy in the name of Marxism, socialism at Jawaharlal Nehru University.
Noting that the background and characters of the novel have been brought from the campus of Jawaharlal Nehru University, the author made a significant comment using the environment of one of the leading educational institutions of the country. It is because of the thoughts of leftist students and teachers who have been languishing in JNU for a long time that the university has seen a moral turpitude. Dr Joshi’s appeal to the younger generation – “learn to judge what is wrong, what is right”. JNU is the ‘average’ form of fake secular and love jihadi. “There should be a discussion in the society on fake secularism,” said Dr. Anshu Joshi. Calling upon the new generation of writers and authors to be responsible towards the society, Dr. Joshi advised them to write for the cause of the welfare of the society. Through literature, the new generation should participate in nation building – Dr. Anshu Joshi appeals.
