On Sunday, violence broke out at Jamia University due to the Delhi Police barging into the campus when the students were protesting the Citizenship (Amendment) Act. Students were arrested and manhandled during the protest but things died down by Monday evening.
A new video has surfaced from the aftermath of the protest showing a heartwarming gesture from the students’ side. The alumni and the students of the university were reportedly seen cleaning up the roads after the protest.

This is Jamia, this is what Jamia has engrained in us, we follow the path of nonviolence, we follow the path of not letting other littering around us and if anyone does it we clean their mess as well.
