After Delhi and Kolkata, protests against ‘anti-nationalism’ in Jawaharlal Nehru University spilled over into Gwalior on Sunday. Activists from the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), the youth wing of the BJP, created chaos at a seminar organised by Amdedkar Vichar Manch (AVM). 

But the BJYM members had a clear target and attacked a guest at the seminar, JNU professor Vivek Kumar, reported the Hindustan Times. 

Kumar was the main speaker at the event and the activists were upset over the organisers hosting a professor from JNU.

The professor was speaking on ‘Baba Saheb Ke Sapno Ka Bhartiya Samaj’ (Indian Society as envisaged by Babasaheb Ambedkar) when BJYM activists barged into the venue and beat up the organisers with sticks and allegedly fired gunshots, as reported by Indian Express.

Immediately afterwards, a clash ensued between AVM and BJYM activists. The professor,  however, was safely evacuated from the venue, reports NDTV

The police initially refused to file an FIR against the BJYM activists, but after much outrage an FIR was eventually filed, reported the Indian Express.

Here’s how twitter reacted to the incident.
