JNU to ‘research’ on ‘Salafi-Jihadist threats’ in Indian sub-continent

-

- Advertisment -

Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) is about to work on a research project titled ”Salafi-Jihadist Threats in the Indian Sub-Continent: Current and Future Challenges in India’s Policy Making”. The project is funded by Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR), a body headed by the government of India.

The University has sought applications for the post of Research Assistant, who will be required to work on the aforementioned project. The selected candidate will be given a salary of Rs 20,000, according to a notification published on the JNU website.

According to Muslim Mirror, there has been a rise in right-wing influence in JNU since the appointment of M. Jagadesh Kumar as the vice-chancellor of the varsity. Kumar is known for being close to Hindutva elements and suppressing dissent on the campus.
