After Ramjas College witnessed large-scale violence over a seminar, SGTB Khalsa College has chose to postpone a street-play competition till peace and normalcy returned to North Campus of Delhi University.The move came after the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU), led by RSS' student wing ABVP, told the college principal that the security for the event "cannot be guaranteed" if the scripts had "anti-national content".

High security has been deployed outside Arts Faculty to avoid any untoward incident ahead of scheduled protest march by students and teachers of Delhi University and Jawaharlal Nehru University. The ABVP is the student wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). Delhi Police had imposed sedition charges against Umar Khalid a year ago. ABVP members protested against the participation of Khalid and Shehla due to their connections with previous seditious protests at JNU and some members allegedly attacked students supporting the seminar. I am not alone.
Gurmehar Kaur, who had gone on a social media campaign against the violence in Ramjas College, pulled out of the campaign after rigorous trolling on Facebook and Twitter.
Some of the members in the protest said that they were very disturbed with anti-India slogans raised by All India Students Association (AISA).
The DU student, Gurmehar Kaur, is now at the centre of a massive political row and has two female constables for protection after she complained about death and rape threats over her post.
Virenndra Sehwag posted a tweet in which the cricketer is seen holding a placard similar to Kaur which reads, "I didn't score two triple centuries, my bat did".
