Delhi University’s Ramjas college became nothing less than a battle ground a few days ago, when the ABVP started a violent protest against students who invited Umar Khalid, a Ph.D student leader from Jawahar Lal Nehru university for a seminar. While the incident brought to light the unlawful restrictions on freedom of expression and assembling in free spaces, it also brought students from different colleges and universities unite and vow solidarity against ‘fascist forces’. Through the powerful medium of social media, the students kept updating the rest of the world about the police’s inaction and ABVP’s hooliganism through Facebook Live videos and live updates. Now they have started a hashtag #StudentsAgainstABVP and are changing their profile pictures holding a placard with a strong message, in support for true democracy.

Reportedly, a student of Lady Shri Ram college, Gurmehar Kaur, started the hashtag, calling others to join the protest and show support. Most of the placards say thus — “I AM A STUDENT OF ___ UNIVERSITY. I AM NOT AFRAID OF ABVP. I AM NOT ALONE. EVERY STUDENT OF INDIA IS WITH ME. #FIGHTBACKDU #STUDENTSAGAINSTABVP”

Even former students of the universities have joined the protests, speaking up against how impoverished the minds of the people who pelted stones on the students are. “This is our fight for democratization of our campus spaces! Reject Hooliganism,” wrote one of the protesting students on Facebook, who also saw their teachers being attacked during the violence.

    In fact the pictures of the scuffle show the leftists hitting pupil of DU. What a foul journalism. There are many such campaigns against JNU, Shehla, Khalid, Kanhaya in FB, youtube. Why choose oneside blatant lies?

      LEt us know why the same antinational brigade didn't forcibly conduct a seminar / meeting when AMU gave them a threat? Why not there? They would have known the true replies had they forcibly held a meeting at AMU.

        She is just supporting the killers of her father and is cheating on the existing soldiers. She is fooling herself and the nation. This is one more campaign by 'Intolerance' and liberal brigade against the nation. So, the antinational likes Umar, Shehla, Kanhaya should be allowed in to the insutions to scold the nation and the government. Wah, what a proposal!

            Well the left and their affiliated goons live on blood and antinational activities. You can't teach the orals on that. They ruined many educational insutions ever since India got its independence. They are continuing the same story here. Thy will be oppposed tooth and nail. If it is China or Pak, they would have seen one more Tianmen Square. You don't have a patent IQ. We know the IQs of these butchers. Where were you when these buthers are butchering the innocents in Kerala and Bengal even recently? Why did these morons oppose Baba Ramdev in JNU? You should be sick of teaching morals.
