New Delhi: The controversy surrounding  violence at JNU continues to keep Twitter very, very busy especially after Delhi Police filed an FIR against 20 students including JNU Students Union President Aishe Ghose.

Actor Swara Bhasker is almost speechless with shock at the FIR.

Writer and lyricist Javed Akhtar is all sarcasm in his first reaction to the FIR.

Dhruv Rathee provides ‘proof’ that the ABVP was involved in the JNU campus violence from one of its own members who admitted this on Times Now.

Filmmaker and musician Vishal Bhardwaj uses poetry to seek answers for the ‘lawlessness’ in JNU.

He’s not alone in resorting to poetry: here’s ABVP’s Nidhi Tripathi blaming ‘communists’ for the JNU violence

Author Amitav Ghosh is concerned enough about the future of the traumatised JNU students to voice his thoughts.

CPI (M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury questions the Prime Minister’s silence and suggests two reasons for it. Read on…

With plans for a nationwide strike on 8 January, AICC member Aamer Javeed finds it ironic that the BJP’s ‘fanboys and troll armies’ are upset because the bandh is bad for the economy.

BJP national spokesperson, Sambit Patra trashes Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut as “Sonia Sainikis”, “Tukde Tukde gang”, and more…

General Secretary of the BJP Youth Wing, Tejasvi Surya has a message for the ‘young of India’.

So does former JNUSU president and CPI member, Kanhaiya Kumar.

And US President Donald Trump is back with this all-caps tweet.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. Students rivels are now national leaders after disobeying the national High court verdict. This is the best way to make sure that India is a great democratic country. Love your selfishness and cry for intolerance. Love for reservation and cry for jobs, CAA, NPR,NRC. Population.

  2. Today politics has taken over everything. I think there are many more aspects we should start focussing on in order to improve as a country. Politicians simply are playing with the minds of gullible public to gain votes.

  3. Why converting a student rivalry over University fee increment into left and right propaganda. Why sympathetising with violence creators. That women broke the law by locking and destroying the server room left started creating violence and later they got beaten up. How can somebody support this
