Varun Awasthi, an educator in the Bangaluru based start up, UnAcademy, has been found provoking students to pick up AK-47s in one of his videos. After the video went viral, educator Awasthi removed the said video from his Facebook profile.
“Mahatma Gandhi said that India’s soul lives in villages, till we do not ensure the rural areas’ progress, we cannot progress as a nation. Similarly, if you do not want the nation to bend its knees, Modi Ji ensure you walk shoulder-to-shoulder with the young generation. Otherwise, just like Jammu and Kashmir, the youngsters of India will pick up AK-47s”, said the educator.
