The liberal ecosystem erupted as an edited video of the violence at Jamia showed Delhi Police beating ‘students’ in a library. The likes of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Rana Ayyub and the ilk erupted as they yet again tried to hit out at the ‘fascist’ Modi government. Unfortunately for the liberals, their agenda was busted in no time as Delhi Police released the full video where it can be clearly seen ‘students’ with stones in hands after torching a motorcycle, running to the library for a safe refuge from the Delhi Police. Expectedly, when their agenda was busted, there was a pin drop silence among the liberal ecosystem.
The Jamia Coordination Committee (JCC) recently released a video supposedly from December 15, when Anti CAA violence had gripped the Jamia Milia Islamia University campus and several other parts of Delhi. The video shows some police personnel can be seen caning people, whom the left-liberal ecosystem claims to be innocent students who were just studying inside Jamia library. The JCC and the entire left-liberal gang has now started to bash Delhi Police over this incident, alleging that the police personnel seen in the video are beating up innocent students. However, this is not the full story. When one sees the entire video, one can clearly see that those who were being passed off as “innocent students” can be seen hurrying into the purported library. On seeing the police, these so-called students, including a masked ‘student’ suddenly settle down and pretend to be studying.
As soon as the edited video was released, huge outrage was manufactured against the Delhi Police by the liberal ecosystem with the usual suspects sharing the edited clip widely.
I do not remember the last time I was so disappointed and disgusted with my country. The visuals of the cops attacking helpless students at Jamia while they run for cover, in a space that was meant to be sacred. I do not recognise India anymore, we are beyond redemption. pic.twitter.com/5eWl9OHhn0

देखिए कैसे दिल्ली पुलिस पढ़ने वाले छात्रों को अंधाधुंध पीट रही है। एक लड़का किताब दिखा रहा है लेकिन पुलिस वाला लाठियां चलाए जा रहा है।
गृह मंत्री और दिल्ली पुलिस के अधिकारियों ने झूठ बोला कि उन्होंने लाइब्रेरी में घुस कर किसी को नहीं पीटा।..1/2 pic.twitter.com/vusHAGyWLh

A thuggish, obscurantist, religious-fundamentalist government at war with students, with education, with modernity… https://t.co/4Ox3WFBNib

The outrage wouldn’t have been complete without RJ Sayema who has recently started professing her love for Sonia Gandhi on Twitter.
They came and said ‘With you, For you, Always’ and left. They showered roses on the students of @jamiamillia_ (as u can see) on the evening of 15th Dec 2019.

The Delhi Police Crime Branch’s Special Investigation Team (SIT) responding to the edited clip, released the CCTV footage, of the 15 December Jamia violence, in which people can be seen in a balcony with stones in their hands. Delhi Police spokesperson MS Randhawa too said that the 44-second video appears to be edited. He said that the library may have had some innocent students, but “it’s also clear that many who entered the library were armed protesters”.
Speaking to News18, the Delhi Police additionally said that on 15 December when the “students were firing petrol bombs from inside the campus, the police went inside and charged with sticks. Watching the video carefully gives a clear picture. The students are studying with their faces covered. This is a clear picture, why will the students sit with their face covered?” Questioning the authenticity of the video, the police further asked how students were peacefully reading inside a library when there was chaos outside — petrol bombs being hurled and tear gas being deployed.
When things became clearer, the tide quickly turned with even India Today criticising the students for spreading violence and later blaming Delhi Police. The university too clarified that the first video was not released by it. “It has come to our notice that some video with regard to police brutality in Dr Zakir Husain Library of the Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) is in circulation. This is to clarify that the video has not been released by the university,” the institute’s public relations officer Ahmad Azeem said.

The Left ecosystem shed tears at the sight of the first video released by that shady account, but there was absolutely pin drop silence amidst the cabal when the subsequent unedited and longer videos were put out by Delhi Police.
These young men, be it students or outsiders from Jamia Nagar involved in the riots, lost all moral grounds when they were seen with rocks in their hands clearly engaging in vandalism.
More than how the police dealt with them, it is appalling that students of the prestigious university in cahoots with outsiders engaged in such violence, arson and vandalism against police authorities in the name of protests.
