Professor Nitasha Kaul Not Allowed to Enter India, Deported To London, Let’s Know Her anti-India History

The “intellectual and professor” Nitasha Kaul was sent to London after being denied entry into India. She says this is because she was invited to speak on democratic and constitutional values by the Karnataka government, which is led by Congress.

Professor Nitasha Kaul, PhD (“@NitashaKaul“) made a claim in a twitter post that she was refused entry into India for delivering a speech about constitutional and democratic values. The government of the Congress-ruled state of Karnataka invited her as an esteemed delegate to a conference, but the centre denied her entry. She attached all the documents for all the claims she made related to the incident. She said that her all documents were true and valid, current UK passport and OCI were valid true, Yet, without any reason she was denied an entry into India. She made the tweet on Feb 25, 2024, which has received an about 2.8M views, contributing to the spread of the information. She even claimed that her travel and logistics had been arranged by Karnataka and she had the official letter with her. She further received no notice that she won’t be allowed to enter, yet she was denied her entry to India. She added “I spent 12 hours in a flight from London to Bangalore, several hours at immig where they shuttled me here & there, provided no info on process, then 24 hours in a holding cell (no BA flight back until next day) under direct cctv w restricted movement, a narrow area to lie down”. She attached her pictures where she was harassed, had no access to food and water, asked for basic help from airport but didn’t get any. Then, after so much of harassment, she again travelled 12 hours from Bangalore to London.
