“Kashmir Mange Azadi” and “Assam Mange Azaadi” slogans were raised at Victorial Memorial in Kolkata during Anti-CAA protest. The protesting students were opposing a discussion based on the topic ‘Bharat Mata Ka Jagaran’.
These students carried a big banner with slogans like “Hindu Rashtra is Rapist”. These students were opposing BJP MP Swapn das Gupta and Viswabharati University VC Vidyut Chakravati.
Slogans like “Bharat Mata se Azadi” and “Kashmir se Azadi” were also raised by protesting students in Kolkata, reported Zee News.
Senior Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi (Rajyasabha MP from West Bengal) has expressed unhappiness over the separatist sloganeering in the protests against the CAA and said that such slogans have no place in anti-CAA protests , Because they are questioning the integrity of our nation.
Bharat mata se azadi & Kashmir se aazadi are secessionist slogans that have no place in a protest against CAA as they are questioning the integrity of our nation as weakening the strong movement against the discriminatory CAA.— Abhishek Singhvi (@DrAMSinghvi) January 23, 2020
