Gurmehar Kaur, daughter of Captain Mandeep Singh said that she received a number of threats, one of which includes threat of rape when she came up against Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad or ABVP, a student union which is linked to the ruling BJP. ABVP is currently under controversy followed by violence in Delhi’s Ramjas College.
She stated that she has been called anti-nationalist and is now receiving threats of violence and rape. A person named Rahul has given a detailed explanation on how he would like to rape her, according to her statement.
Against Ms Kaur’s remarks, ABVP’s national spokesperson Mr Saket Bahugana said that ABVP will protest if integrity of the country will be at stake.
After the ABVP expressed objection against an invitation for a seminar to JNU student Amar Khalid, clashes erupted outside the campus of Ramjas College. Umar Khalid had been accused of agitation over an event last year anti-nationalist slogans were raised.
On a Facebook post, the Lady Shree Ram College held the placard which 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".The post got viral within some hours and was shared nearly 3000 times and even received more than 1000 comments in four days.
