“Aaja Baith Ke Baat Kartein Hain,” is what Najar said to Gopal Sharma before being shot. Now, a video of Najar dancing at lord Ram’s procession is going viral on social media. He was also a theatre artist and participated in plays in the University.
The good looking student has no intention to take revenge from Sharma, but wants to spread non-violence and love which he believes is the ideal fabric of India.

After Najar was injured in the incident, panic rose in the Jamia area. There was a heavy police presence and several media crews in place when the incident took place. The students were heading from Jamia to Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial Rajghat.
The march was stopped at the Holy Family Hospital near the university. Students squatted in the area, asking the police to go back. As they raised slogans of “Go back, go back”, police officials asked them to maintain peace and conduct their protest peacefully.
Shadab & Ram.
