JNU registrar Pramod Nayar asked Thapar to submit her in a letter last month so a “committee appointed by the university could evaluate” her credentials.
“This is purely politically motivated action. Prof. Thapar is a strong critic of policies of privatisation of education, erosion of autonomy of institutions and crushing of dissent by institutions, including JNU,” one of JNU professors was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.
Thapar is an eminent historian and her books are among essential reads for students of India history. She has been awarded numerous accolades from global institutions, including the Kluge Prize of the US Library of Congress, and honorary doctorates from a slew of renowned institutions that include Brown University, University of Oxford, and SOAS University of London among others.
Interestingly, Thapar’s CV is available on the JNU website.
