Amidst the Gurmehar Kaur ‘freedom of speech’ row, the member of Lok Sabha, Shatrughan Sinha on Tuesday said that the whatever is happening in Ramjas College is certainly not likely and violence is the no way to solve the issues. Sinha was quoted as saying, “Democracy h, jo humare khilaf hain,wo dushman nhi hain; Sabko apni rai rakhne ka adhikar h; Agar aap sehmat nhi h,violence tareeka nhi h. (Its democracy. The one who is against us, is not our enemy. Everyone has right to express their views. If you not agree, violence is not the way.)”
The BJP MP further added, “Kuch tanavpurn stithi bani hui hai, ye loktantra aur yuva peedhi ke liye sahi nahi hai (There are some tentions, this is not right for the democracy and the young generation.)” Does that indicates the that Sinha is backing Gurmehar Kaur indirectly?
Meanwhile, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) after violence in the Ramjas College on Monday claimed that the violence among the students were intrigued by left wing parties. Further claiming that the speech of JNU student Umar Khalid was actively opposed by the DU students, the ABVP members stated that they won’t tolerate anti-national slogans in their campus and will protest and fight against it. Addressing the media, Ankit Sangwan, an ABVP member alleged the Left of vandalism and spreading anti-national propaganda in the Delhi University campus.

On the other hand, the protest march by students from various DU colleges as well as those from JNU in North Campus which began this noon is still underway. Today’s protest comes a day after the ABVP-backed Delhi University Students’ Union held a ‘Tiranga March’ from Ramjas College to Arts Faculty. In the afternoon even the student icon and former JNU president, Kanaihya Kumar reached the scene. He stoked the student sentiment by saying who gave the ABVP a right to beat people. The real issue is getting lost in the political din. Our legislators who are supposed to govern the country are indulging in an issue worthy of no attention. Meanwhile, Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur, who was part of the Save DU campaign, announced that she’s withdrawing from it but urged students to attend in large numbers.
