Jawaharlal Nehru University Student Union (JNUSU) president Kanhaiya Kumar has been called a lot of names following his arrest on sedition charges in February. 'Anti-national', 'terrorist', 'separatist', 'rabble-rouser'...and now a doctor.

A fairly obscure and little-known right wing Hindu organisation Veer Sena has now taken it upon themselves to stop Kanhaiya, who according to them is training to be a doctor, from addressing a crowd in Mumbai on April 23.

The organisation is very worried about the “treatment that will be meted out to his patients” once Kanhaiya completes his doctorate.

“We know that he (Kanhaiya Kumar) is pursuing his PhD from JNU and he is threatening to break the nation to pieces," Niranjan Pal of the Veer Sena told The Hindu.

Pal has an important question: "How can a person like him serve the patients who will approach him after he becomes a doctor?”

In a press conference organised by the Hindu Janjagruti Samitee, the ‘patriotic and devout Hindu organisation’ said that Dr Kanhaiya will “spoil the city’s atmosphere” if he is allowed to address in Mumbai.

Vaibhav Raut of Hindu Govansh Raksha Samiti is of the opinion that doctor Kanhaiya shouldn't be allowed to live in India.

When the leader was told that Kanhaiya is doing his PhD in African Studies and a doctorate doesn't mean he will become a medical practitioner, Pal was not convinced. “So? He will become a doctor anyway and patients will approach him," he said.
