Aditya Roy Kapur added, “There’s no place for that kind of violence in our country. The perpetrators have to be brought to task.”
Why do you need to cover your face? Because you know you are doing something wrong, illegal & punishable. There is no honour in this-Its horrific to see the visuals of students & teachers brutally attacked by masked goons inside JNU-Such violence cannot & should not be tolerated

Actor Richa Chadha said: “A few months ago JNU gave the world a Nobel laureate. Now JNU teachers and students are being beaten up for protesting a fee hike. World watches.”
How long will this be allowed to continue? How long will you turn a blind eye? How long will the defenceless be attacked in the name of politics or religion? Enough is enough. @DelhiPolice

such is the condition inside what we consider to be a place where our future is shaped. It’s getting scarred for ever. Irreversible damage. What kind of shaping up is happening here, it’s there for us to see…. saddening https://t.co/Qt2q7HRhLG

अब बारी भाजपा की है निंदा करने की । वो बोलेंगे कि ये जिन्होंने किया ग़लत था , लेकिन सच यह है की जो हुआ भाजपा और ABVP ने किया और @narendramodi और @AmitShah की निगरानी और छत्र्छाया में किया । @DelhiPolice के साथ मिल के किया । यही एकमात्र सच है ।

Taapsee said it was saddening to see an educational institution “getting scarred forever”.
If tonight we as a country cannot grow a conscience then there is no hope. The writing is on the wall. Think carefully about which side of history you want to be on. Each person who speaks up counts. There has to be a greater number of people who value and treasure humanity.

Chhapaak actress Deepika Padukone visited the university on Tuesday. she was very angery at the situation. The actor said in an interview: “I am very angry at what is happening but it is worse that no action is being taken.” she adds: “What I wanted to say I said it two years ago when Padmaavat was released. What I am seeing today, it pains me. I hope it doesn’t become the new normal. That anyone can say anything and they can get away with it. I fear and I’m sad. This is not the foundation of our country.”
This is a saddening situation for the nation.
