New Delhi, March 6: A 15-year-old girl, who was honoured during Republic Day for her commitment to Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, has challenged the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) President Kanhaiya Kumar for an open debate over Freedom of Expression.
She additionally advised Kanhaiya Kumar to think before making any statement and to avoid using abusive language against the Prime Minister who was chosen by the citizens of India.
Jahnvi Behal is a student of DAV Public School, Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar, Ludhiana. She is also an active member of an NGO Raksha Jyoti Foundation.
According to a report in Hindustan Times, she said that the flexibility provided by the Constitution over Freedom of Expression doesn't imply that limits of confinement be crossed and further be misused for any political increment.
She further added, "What has happened in JNU campus in the name freedom of expression is not acceptable for any Indian. The students were raising anti-India slogans, when army men were sacrificing their lives battling against Pakistan supported terrorists”.
“The student leaders for their political gain have been indulging in mud-sledging and using abusing language against the Prime Minister, who is elected by citizens of India. Their act will malign the image of India in the whole world,” she said.
The girl has been accredited with unfolding several issues in the interest of common public. Recently, she recorded a writ in Punjab and Haryana High Court against adult films and porn content on social networking sites.
She also appeared in the court in her school uniform. The High Court had professed judgment in her favour. Likewise, she had taken the matter of road blockage of various organisations to court.
