Bollywood actors Swara Bhasker, Shabana Azmi, Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub, and Taapsee Pannu, and producers Aparna Sen and Hansal Mehta on Sunday censured the viciousness at the Jawaharlal Nehru University and asked Delhi Police to mediate.
Viciousness broke out at JNU on Sunday night after conceal men outfitted with sticks assaulted students and professors and harmed property on the grounds, provoking the organization to call in the police.
At any rate 18 individuals were harmed and admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). JNU students’ union president Aishe Ghosh endured head damage.
The Left-controlled JNUSU and the RSS-affiliated ABVP accused each other of the brutality that proceeded for almost two hours. A few upsetting recordings that show covered individuals conveying sticks and bats have circulated around the web via web-based networking media.
Swara, whose mother Ira Bhaskar is a professor at the JNU, took to Twitter to engage the individuals via web-based networking media to arrive at the grounds “to pressure the government and Delhi Police” to control the brutality.
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 pic.twitter.com/IXgvvazoSn

Mr. Anand Mahindra too tweeted:
It doesn’t matter what your politics are. It doesn’t matter what your ideology is. It doesn’t matter what your faith is. If you’re an Indian, you cannot tolerate armed, lawless goons. Those who invaded JNU tonight must be traced & hunted down swiftly & given no quarter…

JNU students being beaten up by ABVP goons. Live on TV! How much longer are you going to look the other way? Or r u spineless? Yes I AM a liberal! Yes, I AM secular! And proud to be so if THIS is the alternative. Shame! Shame on ABVP & the police who are aiding & abetting them!

Nirmala Sitharaman also tweeted:
Horrifying images from JNU — the place I know & remember was one for fierce debates & opinions but never violence. I unequivocally condemn the events of today. This govt, regardless of what has been said the past few weeks, wants universities to be safe spaces for all students.
