AMU Students Urge President Ram Nath Kovind To Intervene To End Jinnah Row

Students alleged that no satisfactory action has been taken by the Uttar Pradesh government yet

Aligarh (UP):  The Aligarh Muslim University Students Union has written to President Ram Nath Kovind, seeking his intervention to end the controversy over Muhammad Ali Jinnah's portrait on the varsity campus.

In their letter to President Kovind, the students alleged that no satisfactory action has been taken by the Uttar Pradesh government yet. They also said that the Aligarh district administration was yet to act against those who trespassed into the campus and indulged in acts of violence on May 2.

The protest by the students against the trespass and violence entered its 11th day Saturday. AMUSU leaders warned they would intensify their stir and start a relay hunger strike if their demands are not met.

They are also demanding action against the police officers responsible for lathi charge on students on May 2.

AMUSU leaders, including its president Mashkoor Ahmad Usmani, sought an appointment with President Kovind over the issue.

"We have high regard for the president and we hope his prompt intervention will ensure justice and fair play on this critical issue which we are presently facing," Mr Usmani said.
