New Delhi, Feb 28: Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra has come out in support of Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur after the latter took a stand against ABVP activists on campus.
Vadra praised Kaur for her courage and in a post on Facebook said, "Way to go Gurmehar Kaur, for taking on fascists bravely. I am with you and all those people who stand for their rights and freedom of speech. The nation is proud of you for standing your ground and fighting fascist forces."
Vadra said that it was shameful for people to troll Kaur for her remarks on politics.
Kaur, who faced flak for her opinion on the ABVP, said on Monday that she had received murder and rape threats after she stood up against ABVP. However, on Tuesday she took to Twitter and said that she had withdrawn from the 'Save DU Campaign'.
Kaur said that she had withdrawn from the protest and the campaign. She tweeted, "I'm withdrawing from the campaign. Congratulations everyone. I request to be left alone. I said what I had to say. I have been through a lot and this is all my 20 year self could take.
The campaign is about students and not about me. Please go to the March in huge numbers. Best of luck."
