AMU exams delayed; start on May 12

09 May 2018

Aligarh: The students of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), who are protesting since May 2 against the brutal police action in the university campus, on Sunday recieved the supports from civil society members, lawyers and students' organisations of other universities. Mansoor demanding an explanation on the portrait of Mohd. Bareilly resident Bakhtiyar Khan sent some queries to the Darul Ifta after Aligarh Muslim University was hit by a controversy over Jinnah portrait.

Prof Mansoor said the University had initiated a plan of action to return the campus to the usual.

Student union president Mashqoor Usmani told reporters that their three main demands are a judicial enquiry into the May 2 violence, booking those who trespassed into AMU campus under the National Security Act and action against police personnel responsible for the lathi-charge on them. Since then the Muslim University students are holding dharna at the gate after boycotting classes.

He also said University authorities were in constant touch with district authorities and holding regular talks with protesting students.

AMU students alleged that the protesters were from the Hindu Yuva Vahini, and were allowed to leave a police station after being initially detained.

In the varsity, Jinnah's portrait was hanging among a galaxy of luminaries like Mahatma Gandhi, Maulana Azad, Jawaharlal Nehru, CV Raman, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, VV Giri and APJ Abdul Kalam, he added.

Continuing to argue against Jinnah, Modi said that just because the Muslim leader helped set up AMU in the '30s, his crime against millions of Indians in the '40s could not be forgotten or forgiven. Reports inform that internet services were also suspended in the varsity to prevent the communal flare-up over the issue.
