Normally soft-spoken and not one to court controversy, Olympic medallist wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt has taken to poetry to voice his opinion on the JNU crackdown.
A student was picked up last week on sedition charges after allegedly raising anti-India slogans at a cultural evening organised by 10 students. The students made their opinion clear on the execution of Afzal Guru – the man convicted for the 2001 Parliament attack.
Yogeshwar, who won a bronze at the Olympics in 2012, wrote a 19-line poem conveying one simple message: “If Afzal Guru was a martyr, then who was Lance Naik Hanumanthappa?”
The 33-year-old tweeted the poem:
