JNU Violence: A lot of Bollywood celebs like Rajkummar Rao, Sonam Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Anurag Kashyap, Swara Bhasker, Jim Sarbh, Dia Mirza, and others have condemned the attack on the students of JNU in Delhi last evening. Yesterday, a group of goons who had their faces covered attacked the students and faculty of JNU by barging inside the university.
A lot of students and staff are brutally injured due to the attack. As soon as the news of the attack came out, Anurag Kashyap tweeted, “अब शर्म नहीं है बोलने में @AmitShah और @narendramodi तुम और तुम्हारी भाजपा और एबीवीपी आतंकवादी है । #JNUSU”.
Rajkummar Rao tweeted, “What happened in #JNU is shameful, horrific and heartbreaking. Those who are responsible behind these attacks should be punished. #JNUViolence”.
Swara Bhasker shared a video and had appealed people in Delhi to visit the main gate of JNU to provide help. She tweeted, “Urgent appeal!!!! To all Delhiites PLS gather in large numbers outside the Main Gate of JNU campus on Baba Gangnath Marg.. to pressure the govt. & #DelhiPolice to stop the rampage by alleged ABVP masked goons on JNU campus. PLS PLS share to everyone in Delhi!🙏🏿🙏🏿 9pm on 5th. Jan”.
Sonam Kapoor quoted Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s tweet where he condemned the attack on students in JNU. She wrote, “Shocking disgusting and cowardly. Have the balls to at least show your face when you want to attack innocents.”

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

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

Absolutely disturbed to see the visuals of masked goons enter JNU and attack students & teachers – sheer brutality!! Humble appeal to the police to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice

Do you see a pattern???? They don't like students. They don't like education. Because good students don't like to be goons or servants. There is a pattern.

A few months ago JNU gave the world a Nobel laureate. Now JNU teachers and students are being beaten up for protesting a fee hike. World watches. https://t.co/zgdS79jDtT
