JNU Teachers' Association's statement on today's attack inside campus
JNU Teachers' Association releases statement on today's attack inside campus:

"The JNUTA condemns the orgy of violence that was unleashed in JNU today with the connivance of the JNU Administration with the police standing by as mute spectators. Mobs not only went around hostels attacking several students, severely injuring many of them. A JNUTA meeting called to appeal for peace on campus was also attacked by a mob of masked people with stones and sticks. A teacher suffered head injuries and had to be hospitalized. The cars of several teachers were also smashed.

The JNUTA holds the JNU Administration singularly responsible for this grave situation. It is a product of its desperation in the light of it's failure to resolve the crisis created by its high handed imposition of a fee hike. Students have been on an agitation for over 70 days and the VC's obstinacy has prevented any resolution."

IIT-Bombay issues statement in supoort of JNU students who were attacked today evening
IIT-Bombay issues statement in supoort of JNU students who were attacked today evening by masked goons inside the campus:

We, IIT Bombay for Justice would like to extend full support and solidarity with faculty and students of JNU who have been subjected to unprecedented violence and terror in the evening of 5th January 2020 at the hands of hooded-armed mobs. The attack on innocent students and the teachers engaged in the movement against fee hike and CAA and NRC is unprecedented in history and horrifying in its barbarity. Such act of terror has no place in any civilized world least of all in the sphere of learning. We at IIT Bombay feel this terror more keenly as we have also been part of similar movement against fee hikes in IITs and unconstitutional and communal CAA and NRC. The thought that we could very easily have been in their place haunts our minds. We condemn this dastardly act on the most severe terms possible.
Recently, we have seen university campuses been turned into sites for violence. In JNU the attacking ABVP members were totally protected by Delhi police, who stated that they cannot enter inside the campus without 'permission'. However, the same police did not wait for permission when they assaulted students inside Jamia Milia Islamia campus. The police have burnt down students' hostels in Aligarh Muslim University, following their protest against CAA and NRC. University campuses have turned into war zones.
In this situation, we strongly condemn these acts of hooliganism inside university campuses. We should never forget the purpose of our education which is not to spread hatred or violence but to propagate acts of love and sympathy that would let us strive for humanity.

We condemn all acts of violence inside university campus.

We stand with JNU, JMI and AMU.
