ALIGARH: Atleast 15-20 Right Wing activists marched into the Campus of Aligarh Muslim University in a bid to attack Ex Vice President, Shri Hamid Ansari, who was on his visit to the University and to pull down the portrait of Pakistan founder and freedom fighter Muhammad Ali Jinnah, which was placed in the office of AMU Students Union.
The Right Wing Activists as usual, resorted to violence over a frivolous motive which is said to have been instigated by Aligarh MP, Satish Gautam. Students were badly injured, the Rapid Action Force released tear gas bombs creating a very serious and harmful environment in the campus.
On Monday, Satish Gautam, the BJP lawmaker from Aligarh, wrote to university vice-chancellor Tariq Mansoor, asking why the portrait was allowed. AMU spokesman Shafey Kidwai responded that Jinnah was a founder of the university and was granted life membership of the student union.
