After a masked mob attacked the students and teachers of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), students across various universities in India have been protesting against this violence that injured more than 30. The injured students and those of the opposition party have been blaming the Sunday night’s violence on ABVP, a student organization linked to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party. The opposition has blamed BJP for targeting the leftwing supporters of JNU and encouraging the rightwing gangs to enter campuses and attack students.

The Congress party has called this attack “state sponsored terrorism” and the BJP has blamed Congress for using this incident to encourage rioting and anarchy. Rahul Gandhi has appreciated the JNU students a “brave” who stand against the “fascists in control of our nation”. In this political battle, the students have been injured and the University stands in disarray. The Sabarmati hostel was attacked and students locked themselves up in hostel rooms to save themselves. There have been reports of students jumping off the hostel balconies to escape the masked mob. Some bystanders have stated having witnessed the mob attacking the ambulance that had arrived at JNU to carry off the injured

The attack at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) comes after students lead a campaign against the citizenship law seen as targeting the Muslims, introduced by Prime Minister Modi the last month. Critics view the citizenship law as a clear discrimination on the basis of religion with a Hindu-first agenda that undermines the secular democratic foundations of India. The citizenship law is inclusive of the minorities from six religious groups in neighboring countries, but excludes the Muslims.
