A similar poster with words 'Free Kashmir' was flashed at a protest held at Gateway of India in Mumbai. The poster was flashed during a protest held against JNU violence. Mumbai Police filed a case against the woman who held the poster.

Karnataka Home Minister Basavraj Bommai reacted strongly on the incident and said that anti-social elements are behind the incident at Karnataka University. Bommai said that such people want to help Pakistan further its political agenda.

University students across the country have been protesting against the violence that took place on Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus on January 5. A mob comprising of masked men and women barged inside the campus and assaulted students and faculty with sticks. University property was vandalised. AISA and BJP-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) blamed each other for the violence. JNU Students Union president Aishe Ghosh was severely injured in the attack.
