A Delhi-based lawyer on Saturday filed a police complaint against the JNU’s Centre for Women’s Development Studies and organisers of a webinar, for allegedly using the phrase “Indian Occupation in Kashmir”.

Advocate Vineet Jindal, in his complaint to Delhi Police, stated that the webinar titled ‘Gender Resistance and Fresh Challenges in Post 2019 Kashmir’ was to be organised by the Centre on October 29, at 8.30 p.m. and the details were also available on the JNU website.

“In the subject of the invitation to the seminar, it was mentioned Gendered Resistance to Indian Occupation in Kashmir’. By mentioning this phrase, the organisers of the webinar have depicted the forceful occupation of Kashmir by the Indian government and this phrase has questioned the integrity and unity of the country,” the complaint read.

It further said the phrase ‘Indian Occupation to Kashmir’ is clearly perceived to be the forceful occupation of Kashmir by the Indian government which is surely not true.

The complaint filed against JNU under section 121A,124 A,505 OF IPC AND 74 OF IT ACT 2008, also attached the screenshot of the proposed online seminar in the petition.

“The phrase also indicates the intention of the organisers that in the pretext of this webinar it was purposefully used to publicise the idea, provoke and instigate people against the Indian government,” it stated.

The webinar was cancelled after the protest by certain people as the subject of the webinar was found questionable and objectionable, which clearly proves that the organisers had mala fide intentions against the integrity of the country or some other hidden agenda.
