On Sunday, December 5, masked men armed with sticks and stones stormed into Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), leaving at least 28 people injured in their wake.

Soon, accusations were flying, with the left unions blaming the ABVP, while the latter counter-accused the Left.

Now, on Tuesday, a fringe right-wing organisation called Hindu Raksha Dal claimed responsibility for the violence.

The self proclaimed chief of the outfit Bhupendra Tomar alias Pinky Chaudhary released a video to claim that the outfit's workers barged into the JNU campus to stop 'anti-national and anti-Hindu activities'.

"JNU is a hub of communists and we won't tolerate such hubs. They abuse our religion and our country. Their attitude towards our religion is anti-national. In future, too, we will take the same action in other universities if someone tries to indulge in anti-national activities," Tomar said in the video.

The video soon went viral on social media. Twitter especially had a lot to say. Take a look:
