Indian-origin writer says he is not allowed to enter Bengaluru and is deported to the UK

Nitasha Kaul is a novelist, writer and poet.


An Indian-origin teacher in the United Kingdom has claimed that she was denied entry when she landed at the Bengaluru airport to attend an event to which she had been invited by the Karnataka government.

Professor Nitasha Kaul, a London-based Kashmiri Pandit scholar, in a series of posts on

“I was denied entry to India for speaking about democratic and constitutional values. I was invited to a conference as an esteemed delegate of the Government of Karnataka (a Congress-ruled state), but the Center denied me entry. All my documents were valid and valid (UK passport and OIC),” he said, sharing photographs of the invitation extended to him by the Karnataka government and other communications related to the conference.

Claiming that the immigration officials did not give her any reason except “we can't do anything, orders from Delhi”, Ms Kaul said: “My trip and logistics were organized by Karnataka and I had the official letter with me. I did not receive any notification or information in advance from Delhi that I would not be allowed to enter.

The writer said authorities unofficially indicated that she was denied entry to India because she had criticized the RSS in the past.

Reacting to the development, the Karnataka BJP was quick to label the professor as an “anti-India element” and part of what it called a “Break India Brigade”. The BJP alleged that the Congress government was “threatening the unity and integrity of India” by extending an invitation to Ms Kaul.

He said Nitasha Kaul was a “Pakistani sympathizer” and published titles of a couple of her writings on X.

The party alleged that the Congress is “now using Karnataka as its laboratory to pave the way for its divisive agendas”. “Thanks to our security agencies, one such anti-India element was caught suspiciously entering India and detained at the airport,” the BJP said.
