#Fascists will try to delegitimize universities. They will create violence and spread lawlessness. They will then call for the shut down of centers of learning till they can take them over. They fear opinions and intellects. This is how the #Nazis did it too. Wake up! #JNUattack

None of us can claim to be a citizen of a Democracy any more. That is clearly a lie.

When is this madness going to end… what’s the price one can put on an innocent life. Frightening to see images of students and faculty members being attacked and hurt. This level of violence is unacceptable… #JNU

Why do you need to cover your face? Because you know you are doing something wrong, illegal & punishable. There is no honour in this-Its horrific to see the visuals of students & teachers brutally attacked by masked goons inside JNU-Such violence cannot & should not be tolerated

How long will this be allowed to continue? How long will you turn a blind eye? How long will the defenceless be attacked in the name of politics or religion? Enough is enough. @DelhiPolice

Students being used by political parties and their agendas is something this nation needs to address immediately. It’s heartbreaking to see kids being brutalised by power hungry politicians. #JNUViolence

On Sunday, masked goons force entered the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus with sticks and sledgehammers in their hands. The attackers, who have been identified as members of ABVP party, began attacking the innocent students and university professors on Sunday night. The three-hour rampagehas caused irrepairabel damage to student health and campus property.
A blood-covered face of the president of JNU student’s body, Aishe Ghosh has been surfacing the internet that has further outraged the students across the country. The students from various universities like FTII, AMU, Pondicherry University, Bengaluru University and Univerity of Hyderabad. Certain protests were also observed in prestigious universities of Columbia and Oxford.
While the JNU staff called the Delhi Police for immediate help, it was only two hours later that a team arrived at the site of the attack. Upon arrival, the Delhi Police conducted a flag march but couldn’t help much in arresting the masked culprits. Delhi Police is being accused of supporting the attackers as their inactivity and failure in arresting the students appears crystal clear.
