PUNE: National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval has criticised the "talk of India's fragmentation" by elements who have made no sacrifices for the country.         

In an indirect reference to the recent controversy about anti-national slogans raised at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi, Doval said, "some people who have made no sacrifices for the country are talking about fragmentation of India saying Bharat Ke Tukde Honge Inshalla".    

In such events, what is important is how rest of the society responds or remains a "mute spectator", he said adding that the challenge before the country was to evolve a "national will power" to discourage these tendencies.   

Doval's comments came at a 'Youth for Development' conference which he addressed at Hinjawadi IT park here last night.            

According to a recent report prepared by a high-level inquiry committee of JNU, provocative slogans including 'Bharat ko ragda do ragda'(India should be stamped out) and 'Pakistan Zindabad' were raised at a controversial event in the varsity by a group of masked outsiders.        

However, the report said video footages of the February 9 event does not show anyone raising the slogan "Bharat Ki Barbadi tak jung rahegi" (Fight will go on till India is ruined) but claimed that eyewitnesses have confirmed shouting of such slogans in their deposition.
