JNU students protest after administration censors internet

Students at the JNU have complained that the university's administration is censoring content over the campus Wi-Fi, particularly content that is critical or outright against the central government or people associated with it.

The inital tweet was shared by N Sai Balaji, who mocked Narendra Modi's flagship 'Dgital India' programme, asking if the government is afraid of students or questions.





He then proceeded to upload a video showing the censoring of YouTube, which disallowed content emenating from channels known to satirise or criticise the government.




Another student, Om Prasad, claimed that the university is blocking all tweets by left-leaning student organisations and allowing tweets by ABVP and those associated with it.







However, the university has denied all claims of internet censorship, with Rana Pratap, a professor at the university, saying that there has been no change in the URL filtering policy in place.
