JNU students’ union president Aishe Ghosh’s mother Sarmishtha Ghosh on Tuesday pointed to the “filth in the minds” of RSS men and advised them to make up their mind on which twisted version of the university attack must they stick to.
Sarmishtha, who led a march in hometown Durgapur to protest Sunday’s attack on students and teachers at JNU, was reacting to comments of Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh.
He suggested examination of the blood seen on students and teachers during the attack by the ABVP to see if it was “red paint”. Ghosh also said the attack was a “payback, as scores are being settled” for the Left’s alleged violent politics on campuses.
“Such filth in the minds of these RSS men — not that one is to expect anything better from them — but also such contradiction,” Sarmishtha said.
“The likes of him should first figure out which of their versions they want to persist with: whether our children were attacked because of their Left-leaning ideology and that is why they deserve it; whether the victims were actually the attackers and those being blamed were the actual victims; or whether it was all a staged incident, with red paint and fake bandages,” she added.
Sarmishtha alleged that JNU vice-chancellor M. Jagadesh Kumar was trying to help the RSS penetrate the university.
