Lady Sri Ram College student Gurmehar Kaur, posted her message and a profile picture holding a handwritten placard that read, “I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me. #StudentsAgainstABVP.”
In her post, she called the brutal attack on innocent students by ABVP very disturbing. “It is an attack on ideals, morals, freedom and rights of every person born to this nation,” the 20-year-old literature undergraduate said on Facebook.
The voices of support started pouring in soon enough. Thousands shared her post and many joined the campaign by replacing their profile picture with a photograph holding a placard similar to hers.
However, there were abuses as well. One said she hadn’t understood what her father had died for. Someone else called her an anti-national too. Regardless of the criticism, the campaign continues to grow from strength to strength.
