‘I am safe only as long as I am in JNU,’ former JNU ABVP leader on threats to his life


A former ABVP office-bearer in Jawaharlal University has alleged that the members of the RSS-affiliated students’ bdy were threatening his safety because of his decision to quit last week.

Pradeep Narwal, who quit last week, told Indian Express, “ABVP members from Delhi University, where the outfit is stronger, threatened me that I am safe only as long as I am in JNU. But the moment I get out into the world, I will be harmed.”

Narwal also told the paper that there was pressure on ‘us from the ABVP’ to rejoin the students’ body.

He said, “The day I announced my resignation, several senior ABVP members met me and tried to convince me to take back my statement. I kept getting many calls as well. But my decision is final and I am not going back on it.”

Three key office-bearers of the JNU unit of ABVP had quit from the students’ body in protest against the central government’s handling of the JNU crisis and how it was perceived to be hell-bent to crush an ideology, different to that of the Sangh.

In a joint statement, the three leaders said that there was a difference between “interrogation and crushing ideology and branding entire Left as anti-national.”



  1. Pradeep showed moral fiber when he tried to dissociate from the huge fire that was inadvertently caused by him complaining and the VC taking the step of calling in the BJP police, something that was in the already in dirty works department of BJP. It looks like RSS is behaving like Mafia in this case with him – once again casting in stone the RSS fanaticism. Pradeep – stand by the doing the right thing and such things will pass.
