Another dark day in Indian history

Dear Madam,
This refers to the editorial, “Culture of Silence” (NP, January 9, 2020). There is no wonder that those who can kill Mahatma Gandhi can also kill our students. It is a shame that students who have been peacefully protesting against the fee hike are not safe within their University campuses!
The incidents happened starting from Jamia Milia University to Jawaharlal Nehru University make me wonder where our country is heading to! Why the police who were deployed on the campus of JNU did nothing to stop stick wielding masked goons to brutally injure students and teachers?
We condemn the barbaric act of terrorism against the students and teachers of JNU. Like 30th January 1948, 5th January 2020 will be remembered as another dark day in Indian history.
