Background

The idea of having a Wall of Valour in universities was first proposed by a group of ex-servicemen.

The demand came following anti-national slogans being allegedly raised in universities.

The move came after vice chancellors of all central universities decided to install the national flag "prominently and proudly" on their campuses in 2016.
