Gurmehar Kaur withdraws from campaign, says won't take part in AISA march

Gurmehar Kaur, whose father Captain Mandeep Singh was martyred in a terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir in 1999, said she will not be taking part in the protest march today but urged students to support the campaign.

Gurmehar Kaur, the Delhi University student at the centre of controversy surrounding the premier educationalinstitution, has decided to distance herself from the patriot war playing out at the Ramjas College.

On Tuesday, Kaur posted a series of tweets, saying she will not be participating in the AISA march. "I'm withdrawing from the campaign. Congratulations everyone. I request to be left alone. I said what I had to say", Gurmehar Kaur said.

"Ihave 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, Kaur, whose father Captain Mandeep Singh was martyred in a terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir in 1999, said.

"Toanyone questioning my courage and bravery...I've shown more than enough. One thing is for sure, next time we will think twice before resorting to violence or threats and that's all this was about," she added.
