After JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya were released on bail yesterday, the university reprised the celebrations that followed JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar's release.
Hundreds of students, former students and well wishers gathered in the campus to welcome the duo back. Khalid and Anirban both delivered speeches to rousing applause and were also joined by Kanhaiya Kumar.
However, the person who stole the show was a 12-year-old girl - Khalid's sister.
She was urged by the students to tell the people gathered there what she feels about the entire issue. He short speech packs a fiery punch and is sure to leave those alleging 'anti-national' activities in JNU a little red-faced about their own immaturity.
She begins with saying, "It is moment of great happiness that my brother and Anirban bhai is back, that also together."
And as her voice nearly drowns in applause, she raises her hand and says, "Aur ek baat batana chahoongi (want to say one more thing)."
She then continues, "Our fight doesn't get over with Umar and Ban's (Anirban's) release. Unless every one is this country gets justice, we won't rest easy."
She then goes on to chant 'laal salaam' her brother's peers join her.
