The JNU administration today ordered removal of a “controversial” poster which sprang up on its campus demanding “freedom for Kashmir and Palestine”.

The poster with “Freedom for Kashmir! Free Palestine! Right to Self Determination Long Live! DSU” written on it was pasted on the wall by the Left-leaning Democratic Students Union (DSU).

DSU’s former members Umar Khalid, Anirban Bhattacharya and others had organized the controversial event last year against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru at the JNU during which anti-national slogans were allegedly raised.

Khalid, Bhattacharya and former student union president Kanhaiya Kumar are out on bail in a sedition case over the event.
