Since #JNUtapes show that the Left was involved in shutting down the internet server on Jan 4, it did not delve into the violence at ABVP members indulged in over the internet that day.

Here's Aditya Chaudhary (ABVP) attacking other students with a rod. BA 1st year, German.
Here's what kept ABVP's Vikram Singh Rajput (stick in hand) busy on Jan 4. JNU ABVP president Durgesh can be seen walking by (blue shirt).

From the comedy pages of History today in the Habsburg-Ottoman War - The battle of Karensabes (I am not sure about the spelling)

Codename - 'Bas Naam Rahega Allah Ka' (1/n)
Habsburg-Ottoman War went on from 16th-18th Century but this particular battle was in the late 18th century. Austrian Army was a strong 100,000 men army but consisted of soldiers from every ethnicity from the empire, including Czechia, Austria, Germany, Slovakia, etc (2/n)
So language was a problem... Anyway, a troop was doing some patrolling near Karensabas (again, not sure about the spelling) but it's in modern-day Romania. The army decided to camp near a river and the Vanguard continued their scout for Ottomans and crossed the river (3/n)

BJP representative Amitabh Sinha refuses to say that he opposes Hitler, Mussolini and Godse while the ABVP terrorists in the front rows start chanting "Godse Zindabad".

Now there is no need for the Hindutva terrorists to hide their extremism.

Later he threatens to get Kanhaiya killed in encounter. When @sardesairajdeep asks whether he is openly threatening Kanhaiya, Amitabh goes Savarkar mode and says that "thokna" means punish according to law.
#JNUUnderAttack #JNUViolence
Kanhaiya - He studied in JNU at cheap fees, got rich and sends his kids to private institutions, and now he wants the poor to pay high fees in JNU.

Amitabh - Don't sell poverty here.

Kanhaiya - Don't insult our Prime Minister who keeps on selling poverty.

THREAD: One of the few reporters to manage to enter #JNU last night around 9:00 pm-there till 1:00 pm.
Saw first hand how streetlights in parts of JNU, away from the main gate, were working brilliantly. But as one got closer to the main gate/various exit gates, they didn't work.
Around 9:00| On the 3 km walk towards Sabarmati, met students who were scared of policemen or were stepping out only to drop their families to a relatives place to ensure safety. One told me, "I am going to drop my 3-year-old child and wife to my friend's place in Tughlaqabad."
Around 9:30| Met many many students who were hiding in the forests after the violence they ran away from around 6:30 pm. They had taken temporary refuge in the dark forests in JNU as they were scared of being picked up/detained/arrested.

A detailed report on #JNUViolence by @sighyush and @veenanmnair14 who were on the spot till about 3 am.…
@sighyush @veenanmnair14 “I was returning from Munirka with groceries at around 8.15 pm when the police refused to allow me to enter the campus from the main gate,” said Jyoti, a student.
@sighyush @veenanmnair14 “So I walked ahead to the Saraswatipuram gate. There, men shouting ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ slogans were allowed to enter by the police. But when I tried to enter on my scooter, I was let in only after furnishing identification.”

In the next few days, you will be told few things by those who want to discredit the impact of #SOSJNU
1) The left wing students did it, it's their agenda: simply ask why will they sabotage their protest against free hike by unleashing violence? They don't benefit from it (1/7)
2) You will be told this is a paid propaganda by other parties. Tell them that other parties can't even make a good opposition. Do not give them undue credit for organised terorrism on university campuses. (2/7)
3) Photos of women being hurt from the other side will come out. The oppressor knows how to use the body of the woman for its convenience. Corroborate this with sources. These ppl have got Thai women to pose as north Eastern people. Their ingeniousness knows no bounds.(3/7)

Don't know who began this violence, who gains from it; all I know is that we spent the last three harrowing hours getting two terrified girl students out from the lab they had locked themselves in because goons were roaming outside with acid, safe back home.

She said that people in the mob were carrying rods and lathis and all had their faces covered. The scholar could not identify who they were and said that the mob was not of people from #JNU.

@DelhiPolice Isn't this proof of an organised terrorist attack?
Also some of you liberals on the group, don't be stupid. When you get in the group and bash them, they get suspicious and remove you. We lose access to information.

If you're confused about the possible identity of the masked attacked in #JNUviolence, a question to ask:
Has there been a single tweet yet from @narendramodi @AmitShah or HRD minister @DrRPNishank? What about @CPDelhi @DelhiPolice? Ans: none
@narendramodi @AmitShah @DrRPNishank @CPDelhi @DelhiPolice (2) I received word about #JNUViolence at 18.15 – three and a half hours ago. Since then the Home Minister has tweeted four times; the HRD minister eight times – none of them about JNU.
BJP Delhi MP @M_Lekhi tweeted 18 mins ago – about inaugurating a pedestrian bridge.
@narendramodi @AmitShah @DrRPNishank @CPDelhi @DelhiPolice @M_Lekhi (3) The only tweets from Union ministers are from #JNU alumni, Finance Minister @nsitharaman and Minister of External Affairs @DrSJaishankar. These two tweets speak volumes.
