My name is Umar Khalid and I’m not a terrorist : Umar Khalid, JNUSU member

After a lookout order of the six members of JNUSU, Umar Khalid, one of the six students accused of raising anti-national slogans at the JNU on February 9, has released a new video and confessed that running away and hiding was a wrong decision.

Late on Sunday Umar Khalid and his associates returned back to the JNU campus, after getting the news Delhi police tried to arrest him but they were not allowed to enter the campus, Delhi police was also more keen to handle the case more carefully after the Kanhaiya arrest episode. They await the chancellor’s permission to access the premises.

“My name is Umar Khalid and I’m not a terrorist,” Khalid, who fled the campus after the matter became serious, said, condemning the media trial that branded him a terrorist.

“The attack is not because of the program which was organised on Feburary 9, but because the government needs an excuse to attack us,” Khalid said, addressing students in front of the admin bloc at the campus.

Khalid, along with four other accused, Anant Prakash Narayan, Ashutosh Kumar, Rama Naga, Anirban Bhattacharya, returned back to the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus late on Sunday.

“The media, all this while, presented a lot of things about me. The media trial, this propaganda… I know what my family is going through,” he said. He also refuted the media reports that he made 800 calls to ‘Gulf or Kashmir’ a few days before the program was organised.
