Teachers at Indian Institute of Technology- Delhi (IIT-D) have written a letter of support to the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students to expressed solidarity with them.

The teachers, mostly from the department of humanities and from different science and core engineering courses, have sent the solidarity letter. The new vice-chancellor of JNU, M Jagadesh Kumar, was formerly a member of the faculty at IIT-D.

“We condemn the increasingly narrow definition of nationalism that are being imposed on the citizens of India and used as instruments for the closing of the Indian mind. We choose to embrace a nationalism which celebrates our plurality as a country, and which is not threatened by dissent and disagreement. We stand with all those who share this vision,” said the letter from IIT-D.
