Many actors have taken to social media to condemn the attack on students and faculties at Jawaharlal Nehru University.

More than 35 students were injured on Sunday when a masked mob went on the rampage, attacking students and professors and vandalizing property. The JNUSU has accused the RSS-affiliated ABVP volunteers of attacking the students.

Malayalam actor Tovino Thomas said, "When the students of a premier university get attacked by cowards without faces and the system fails to stand firm against this, something is seriously and gravely wrong in this country!".

"Whatever be your political affiliation, if you are still believing that everything is normal here, you are terribly mistaken! Unless and until those cowards are caught and punished for what they did to our students, this nation is not going to sleep!"

Actor Murali Gopy described the attack on students as "Black Shirts' terror @ JNU!" History suggests that this is yet another ominous portent of a democracy's steady decline into a fascist Black Hole, he wrote on his Facebook page.

Actor-turned Director Geetu Mohandas said, "What the hell is going on! What next? A war against children?”

She also shared a picture of bleeding Aishe Ghosh, President of JNUSU.
