Simha posted an image of Gurmehar holding a placard that read 'Pakistan did not kill my dad, war killed him', along with a photo of Dawood holding a placard that read 'I did not kill people in 1993, bombs killed them.'

Kaur, who studies at the DU, had posted a message against the ABVP following the violence at Ramjas College on February 15 Kaur claimed that she has been receiving rape threats after her social media post went viral.
"I have been getting a lot of threats on social media. I think it is very scary when people threaten you with violence or with rape," Kaur, whose father Captain Mandeep Singh was martyred in the 1999 Kargil War, said.
Kaur on Monday filed a complaint with the Delhi Commission for Woman for receiving rape threats.
Kaur had on Sunday faced backlash on social media for initiating an online campaign #IamnotafraidofABVP, holding a placard which read, "I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me. #StudentsAgainstABVP".
Attacking ABVP for taking law and order into their own hands, Kaur asserted her patriotism. “I love my country. I also love my fellow students, and I support their right to freedom of speech,” she said.
