Amid a major clash between the students of Ramjas College and Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) on February 22nd, Delhi University student, Gurmehar Kaur, stood against violence showcasing her support to the students of Ramjas college.

Kaur recently started a campaign against Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), alleged to have attacked the students of Ramjas during a planned march from the college on February 22nd to demand action vandalism by the RSS-backed group a day earlier. Kaur took her outrage on Facebook where she uploaded a picture of her holding a placard that 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 over 3K shares and over 5K likes and was spread across and students soon started following a trend set up by Kaur, using the hashtag to regroup and reorganise against violence.

As a result, Kaur alleged that she was threatened with rape after her social media campaign against the ABVP or Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad went viral.

An year ago, in an attempt to build peace between India and Pakistan Kaur appeared in a video. The video is being shared again after her DU tweet.

In the video, Kaur is also seen holding up a sign that reads ‘Pakistan did not kill my dad, war did’. Kaur’s father, Captain Mandeep Singh, was killed in the 1999 Kargil war.

Kaur’s Pakistan sign had a complete opposite effect online by well acclaimed personalities of the nation including Cricketer Virender Sehwag and actor Randeep Hooda.
