Aligarh Muslims Umiversity Students are not happy with the President Ram Nath Kovind. Kovind is to attend the 65th annual convocation ceremony but Student Union secretary clearly said that the presence of any member of the RSS at the event will not be tolerated. Speaking to a news agency,student union Secretary Mohammad Fahad said that they are not against the presence of President Kovind, but simply oppose ‘sanghi’ mindset.
He recalled the remark made by the President in 2010 against the Muslims and Christians living in the country and said that it still stings the students of the university. Fahad said,”We are not opposing the visit of the President; we oppose the ‘sanghi’ mindset”. Fahad said,”Our President gave a statement about Muslims and Christians in 2010, saying ‘Muslims and Christians are alien to this nation’. The statement sill stings the students of AMU, but we respect him as the President and welcome him, but at the same time no ‘sanghi’ person accompanying him would be allowed inside the university premises. Those coming as per protocol can come.”
Fahad also wrote to the administration regarding the issue and had warned that “no ‘sanghi’ politician would be allowed to enter the university premises and added the students would stage a protest” if it happens.
