The JNU campus yesterday witnessed ugly scenes of violence as a group of masked goons ran riot in the University campus. The JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh was rendered injured with a bloodied head while many others from the left camp as well as AVBP sustained injuries. Almost as soon as the reports of violence started coming in, the entire left-liberal cabal went hammer and tongs against the ABVP, blaming it for violence. However, an objective analysis of what transpired on the University campus yesterday reveals that there are clear markings of leftist violence on the campus of the Central University, followed by an attempt to shift the blame on the ABVP.
Three broad factors conclusively prove how it was the excessively dominant left in JNU that orchestrated violence and how there was an active campaign set in place to wrongly frame ABVP in this unprecedented violence.
1. Registration boycott: the starting point of violence
While the leftist cabal and some eminent journalists are claiming that a group of masked goons belonging to the BJP suddenly resorted to violence, an official press note from the JNU administration has set the record straight. According to this note, “Around 4.30 PM, a group of students who are against the registration process moved aggressively from the front of the admin block and reached the hostels.” The note adds that students who came for the registration were beaten up by a group of students opposed to registration. Post the fee-hike protests, this registration boycott had been initiated by the left ruled JNUSU and had been going on for over a week. On January 3, a group of students in masks forcibly entered the office of the Center for Information System, switched off the power supply, forcibly evicted all technical staff & made servers dysfunctional with the intent to not allow online registrations to take place. Yesterday was supposedly the last day for registration, and many students had flocked in despite facing hostilities by left goons allegedly from SFI, AISA led by JNUSU itself.

The administration’s version also seems reliable and consistent because the left-wingers at the university had resorted to disruptive activities on January 3 and January 4 when those opposed to registration had stopped the wifi service in the JNU campus. The administration’s version is thus well corroborated.
Violence at the University was a result of the leftist diktat against registration. But when hundreds of students defied that diktat, the anti-registration lobby resorted to violence. This version is also corroborated by Raj Shekhar Jha from TOI.
Above all this, the JNUSU president who herself was injured, was earlier seen with a bunch of masked men in a video that surfaced today and was shared by a Republic TV journalist.

This is how it started in JNU.
Hundreds of students have taken registration even after the boycot by JNUSU led by Leftwingers.

My JNU sources say that whole fight started over registration. Leftists didn’t want any one to register but around 2,000 students defied their diktat. ~300 leftists (some say from outside – Jamia etc) came in night to attack ABVP folks in hostels. The clashes continued today.

JNU: The administration contacted the Police to come and maintain law & order on the campus today. By the time police came, students who came for the registration were beaten up by a group of agitating students opposting the registration.

2. Injuries sustained by ABVP activists
Testimonies of injured students and ABVP activists reveal how the masked goons selectively targeted ABVP activists. One of the injured students has revealed how the leftist goons went berserk beating up students and ABVP activists with sticks, stones and even iron rods. One of the girl students had revealed that the leftist goons went berserk and even hurled expletives at her. She revealed how a mob of 100-200 leftist goons went berserk at Periyar Hostel in JNU. They barged into the hostel rooms, where they started beating up students. In the ensuing violence, she sustained injuries, including a fracture in her hand. The JNU guards on duty have also revealed how the dominant leftist cabal in the University had resorted to violence against them. Such was the intensity of violence against the ABVP that 25 if its members got seriously injured, while 11 are missing.
“Around four to five hundred members of the left wing gathered around the Periyar hostel, vandalised the hostel and forcibly entered the hostel to thrash the ABVP activists inside,” ABVP’s JNU unit Pres Durgesh told IANS before news of more violence broke out.

Statement of Durgesh Kumar (President, ABVP JNU) on the attack. ABVP rightly blames the Left.
If you notice, the ABVP narrative on what led to the violence on campus is consistent, where as what you see on the other side is a lot of rhetoric and theatrics.pic.twitter.com/zoLrUBT6ax

Another account but absolutely consistent with what others have said so far… Communists are targeting students with differing political affiliations and obstructing registration process… Compare this with theatrics of Left leaders who have queued up at JNU! #LeftAttacksJNU pic.twitter.com/5ydc6lvZvo

3. Fake screenshots and false allegations against ABVP
As soon as the reports of violence come in, the rumour mills started working in full flow with wild, imaginative and “unverified” allegations such as acid attack by ABVP activists doing the rounds. Later on, eminent journalists including Barkha Dutt shared WhatsApp screenshots in a bid to conclusively indict the ABVP of perpetrating violence. This is where the leftists have got exposed in an unprecedented and shameful manner.
First Fake News- Student killed in Jamia
Second Fake News- Police cutting off hands in AMU
Third Fake News- Police raping minors in UP.
Hopefully this fourth one clicks, fingers crossed. pic.twitter.com/PWOTi8b37Y

There are screenshots of two main groups- ‘Unity against Left’ and ‘Left Terror down down’. Interestingly, a provocative message that Barkha Dutt has shared from the ‘Unity against Left’ group, however, the number which texted this provocative message belongs INC crowdfunding. The other group, that is, “Left terror down down” is an even more naíve and shoddy attempt to wrongly frame the ABVP. A screenshot of the group chat reveals that the name of the group has been renamed several times. The original name of the group was “Sanghi goons moordabad”. It was renamed as “ABVP chee chee” and finally the desperate leftists made a shoddy attempt with an entirely new name to frame the ABVP.

It is thus amply clear that JNU violence last night is in line with the leftist modus operandi of first indulging in rampant violence and then resorting to a deep sense of victimhood to shift blame for the violence.
