The notice for the webinar, which was to be held at 8:30pm on Friday, read, "This talk will draw and build upon the ethnography of gendered resistance to Indian occupation in Kashmir."

JNU vice-chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar said: "This is a highly objectionable and provocative subject, which questions the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our country. JNU cannot be a platform for this kind of questionable webinars. The faculty member organising the webinar did not seek the permission of the administration before planning such an event. The matter is being inquired into."
