Bollywood actress Swara Bhaskar has condemned the Ramjas College incident, saying no amount of explanation can justify violence.
Last week, Delhi University's Ramjas College turned into a battleground as students of Left-affiliated AISA and the RSS-backed ABVP, armed with hockey sticks, rained blows on each other, causing injuries to many.
The genesis of the clash was an invite to JNU students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid to address a seminar on 'Culture of Protests' which was withdrawn by the college authorities following opposition by the ABVP.
Swara said instead of resorting to violence, people should start conversing to resolve issues.
"As a student of Delhi university and JNU, I want to say that violence cannot be justified in any context. You can call it 'rashtravaad' (nationalism) or give it any other term later but violence is wrong. If there is an argument, it should be sorted out through conversations," said Swara.
Lady Shri Ram College student Gurmehar Kaur, daughter of Kargil martyr Captain Mandeep Singh, had launched a viral social media campaign against Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) stating, 'I am not afraid of ABVP'. Kaur, 20, today withdrew from her social media campaign after allegedly receiving threats from the members of the RSS-backed outfit and getting trolled online. The 'Nil Battey Sannata' actress said citizen of the country including film stars, have become vulnerable to this.
