On 22nd February, the students of Ramjas College, protested and forced the College in DU to withdraw its invitation to Umar Khalid who has been accused of shouting anti-national slogans at JNU last February. Also to cement his supposed anti-national credentials, after the death of terrorist Burhan Wani; Khalid had put out a Facebook post openly supporting him.
This invitation episode though wasn’t without incident and violence seemed to have erupted between the leftist AISA (All India student’s association) and RSS affiliated ABVP. While the AISA version is now public, here is the ABVP’s version of the events. The media though almost predictably was quick to paint the ABVP as the main barbaric aggressor and the Left as the unfortunate victims.
But now thanks to Social Media, details have started to emerge of how the media conveniently ignored the various acts of violence the Left committed. BJP leader Nupur Sharma claimed to have received images from a DU professor which supposedly depicted atrocities committed by the Leftists on ABVP members.

A leftist twitter user was posting moving accounts of how ABVP heaped atrocities on them and in one tweet also claimed they (Left) took a moral high ground and chose not to retaliate. Maybe taking a break from playing the victim card the user then gleefully replied to a murderous troll about how an ABVP activist was thrice beaten by the leftist students and claimed that they (Leftists) outnumbered the ABVP guys by a whopping 10:1 ratio. This was reported in this tweet.
Also to make matters worse, The Hindu decided to continue its legacy of publishing fake news and depicted the SFI activist in the above picture who was assaulting students as a ABVP member.

And here’s another proof that he is an SFI activist.
And if the media could completely disregard the violence perpetrated by the Left they could certainly disregard the opportunity used by these students to shout anti-national slogans:
Just received this video clip of ultra left protest inside Ramjas College. Slogan is: ‘Hum Kya Chahte Azadi, Kashmir Maange Azadi’. Tragic. pic.twitter.com/9KF0eDqNxX
