Students of Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) Protesting: How Do They Have So Much Time for Protests?

Why are the students of Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) protesting? Valid question. I will not attempt a political commentary that mainstream media is already immersed into. A more critical question is to explore this – why do students get so much time & energy to protest on matters that do not impact them in any way ?
