Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has been in the limelight the past few days for various issues. From sedition charges to student arrests, the university is seeing a spate of activity around it.

Of course the intelligent usage of the word ‘Patriot’ went viral on Twitter. Here are some tweets praising the front page:
