Earlier today, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju came under heavy criticism after the minister tweeted, suggesting that someone was ‘polluting’ the mind of the Delhi University student who has been campaigning on social media against the ABVP.
Who’s polluting this young girl’s mind? A strong Arm Force prevents a war. India never attacked anyone but a weak India was always invaded. https://t.co/gXHkAGi9sh

Gurmehar Kaur, a student of Lady Shri Ram College and daughter of an army officer killed in the Kargil war, has launched a social media campaign against the ABVP after the violence in Ramjas College.
Clashes took place at Delhi University’s Ramjas College on February 22 after ABVP members forced the cancellation of a seminar and then disrupted a march.
