South Asia Solidarity Group Deplores Hindutva Attack on Aligarh Muslim University (AMU)

AMU Issue: Internet Services suspended in Aligarh, Section 144 imposed in Town

The controversy surrounding Jinnah's poster was triggered this week after BJP MP from Aligarh Satish Gautam wrote to Aligarh Muslim University Vice-Chancellor Tariq Mansoor, seeking explanation for Jnnah's portrait finding a place in students' union office.

Interestingly it is not just the much-derided "Left-Liberal" intellectuals who consider Jinnah a tall leader in India's independence movement before he espoused the cause of Pakistan.

Talking to ANI, Trivedi castigated sympathizers of Jinnah, who was responsible for country's partition.

Kashmir University Teachers Association (KUTA) has strongly condemned the recent incident of violence and brutal assault of Hindu Yuva Vahini members upon the students of Aligarh Muslim University followed by cane-charging of student union leaders by U.P. police. Soon after his request, members of the Hindu Jagran Manch arrived at the university campus demanding the removal of the portrait. The students explained that they do not mind the poster being removed, but have an issue with people gatecrashing the campus and disturbing the environment.

President Trump to address NRA meeting in Dallas
Parkland student David Hogg started a petition asking Pence to drop out of his speaking slot at the NRA convention 2018. Trump will also attend the convention on Friday, a senior White House aide said but did not give a time.

He also reminded the AMU students that their university has the reputation of being one of leading academic institutions in the country and they should be aware of the hopes and expectations that the nation holds for them. "For the next fortnight, Jinnah will be brought back from the grave and real issues will be sidelined", he said.

The internet services in Aligarh will remain suspended till 12:00 am (06 May 2018).

On Thursday, 28 students and 13 cops were injured in a clash which broke out between AMU students and the police. Section 144 of the CrPC (armed unlawful assembly) is in force in Aligarh. The protesting students have been joined by representatives from a number of other prominent institutions from across northern India.

The Delhi police then had to barricade the Uttar Pradesh Bhawan and asked the protestors to leave, reported India Today.
