Protests and arrests at Jawaharlal Nehru University

Colleagues at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi have written with news about recent events unfolding at the university which question freedom of expression, which is a legal right, and should be part and parcel of the inquiry which takes place during the learning process.

We hope the situation is resolved amicably, without resort to violence, despite the presence of police on the campus. To find out more about arrests at the JNU campus, please visit:
