Former Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union (JNUSU) President Kanhaiya Kumar has sparked off yet another controversy today by comparing the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) with terrorist organisation Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Times Now reported. Replying to a question on whether Jawaharlal Nehru Univesity (JNU) has become a ‘punching bag’ for extremist forces, Kanhaiya said that any kind of extremism, whether it comes from the RSS or ISIS, is unacceptable and henceforth dangerous for the nation.

Recently, Kanhaiya Kumar had said people will be called anti-nationals for not using Patanjali products, PTI had reported. Speaking on the issue of arrest of 68 Rajasthan University students under sedition charges, Kanhaiya slammed the state government, stating that many sections of society are living in “an environment of fear”.

“Such is the environment of fear in the country now, that if you do not use Patanjali face wash, then you will be called anti-national,” Kumar said. Kanhaiya had made the comments while addressing a gathering at the launch of ‘Bihar Te Tihar’, the Marathi version of his Hindi book, on the eve of the birth anniversary of Dalit icon Dr B R Ambedkar.

“Babasaheb Ambedkar had framed Constitution in such a manner that it has provided freedom to every member of society in many ways. But this freedom enshrined in the Constitution has not been delivered to a large section of society,” Kumar said.

Kanhaiya, commenting on the preset social and political scenario, said that various sections of society, “including the poor, Dalits, women, tribals, backward classes, minorities, and even intellectuals live in fear.”

“The present scenario in the country is such that if you demand reduction in fee, you will be labelled anti-national,” he added.

    Only organization comparable to ISIS in terms of murders are the communists. Why can this great intellectual person not get himself to mention his own party? Either stupidity or hypocrisy.

        kanhaiya should read the cons ution in letters and spirit to comment on fundamental right to freedom before speaking on freedom of speech. as far his comparison RSS with ISIS, the contribution of each RSS member to nation building is far more than kanhaiya who survives only on subsidy in every respect..

          @Saravanan Periyasamy, do you have any evidences to support your allocations against Kanhiya? But there are many evidences of BJP IT cell guys involved in spying for Pak... There were 9 such Gaddars arrested in MP, will you accept bjp is Pak agent??? There are established evidences but you are bhakt you will not accept it. He is a brave and fearless Indian, better than a bhakt.

                    I think media is giving much importance to an immature student with half baked thinking.

                            This is why we should not take 30 year old students of African history seriously. The difference is: Hindu extremism versus Islamic terrorism. ISIS aren't extremists, they are terrorists. They committed genocide of Yazidis and made all women and girls slaves. Comparison of ISIS and RSS just shows your lack of education, in the real sense. While I know you won't due to your new found star status in your University and some tail parties, you should apologize for shamelessly misleading your audience.

                              Since when has this clown graduated from "Bharat Ki Barbadi" gang to looking for things " dangerous to the nation". He himself and the other animals of the left-lib-sick zoo are the biggest threats to INDIAN NATION with or without Patanjali Face pack.

                                  This is the height of immaturity, this mentality of the Chaina loved communists leading to eradication of their ideology from the world. Common Mr. Kumar, at least try now to learn what are the similarities between your ideology and isis ideology, Both ideologies eliminates the opponents or non believers in respective ideologies.

                                      Till date we have seen extremism only from ISIS, taliban and other muslim terrorist organizations. Lets give RSS a try and see the difference.

                                        It is very unfortunate that a dirty soul like kanhaiya kumar took birth in India.
