Gurmehar Kaur Launched A Social Media Campaign #StudentsAgainstABVP

Daughter of a Kargil war martyr, Gurmehar Kaur launched a campaign against the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) after they had a violent clash with students at Ramjas College. The campaign initiative launched via a Facebook post got Kaur immense support and popularity along with trolling and rape threats, later becoming politicised. In a recent tweet, Kaur has withdrawn from the campaign.

ABVP students had protested the attendance of two JNU students in an event at Delhi University’s Ramjas College, claiming that as the students had allegedly been involved in seditious activities they should not be invited to an event at DU.

In her viral Facebook status launching the social media initiative against ABVP Gurmehar said “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”.
