Campus magazine casts aspersions on Modi

Campus magazine casts aspersions on Modi

Close on the heels of the arrest of the principal of a college and six students in Kerala for defaming Prime Minister Narendra Modi in its campus magazine, journal of a nearby college is also found to have cast aspersions on Modi prompting the police to swing into action.

Police on Friday registered a case against the principal and 11 students of the Sree Krishnan College at Guruvayur after its campus magazine was found to have used “objectionable and unsavoury” language against Modi, garbed in the guise of a cross-word puzzle.

The Guruvyaur Sree Krishna temple managing committee, which runs the college, had sought an explanation from the principal in connection with the case, temple administration sources said. The BJP and its youth wing workers took out a protest march demanding action against the principal.

The principal and a few students of the government polytechnic at Kunnamkulam are facing legal action for featuring Modi’s photograph in the college magazine under a list of “negative faces” with Adolf Hitler, George W Bush, Osama bin Laden and a few others.
