Dil aur dimaag ki race mein sirf 6 minute ka difference hai. Dil agar pehle kaam karna bandh karta hai toh uske rukne ke baad dimag ke paas bhi sirf 6 hi minute hai, khatam toh woh bhi hoga. hum shayad is waqt us madhayantar mein hai.

Urban naxals, tukde-tukde gang, anti-nationals, mughalon ki aulaad, desh ke gaddaron ko goli maaro saalon ko..where have you heard these terms and slogans before? It’s no rocket science to figure who these “miscreants” inside and outside #JNU are. Stop making excuses now. Enough.

RED ALERT!! Major attack by hundreds of masked goons on #JNU students within the campus..how can hundreds of people come in 80-100 cars, put out the street lights and enter a campus without police knowledge n control ??Delhi junta needs to come out n support these students NOW!!

Hai Dastoor ki subah hone se pehle
Raaton ka gehra ho jaana laazim hai
Zulm badhaao abhee tumhare zulmon ka
Had se baahar bhee ho jaana laazim hai
It’s shameful and enraging to see what’s happening in #JNUViolence

I was very upset and angry. Violence has no place in this world we live in and especially with and students.. and those that attack women need to be dealt with savagely. https://t.co/P04Ym4MX3r
