Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the centenary celebrations of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) today via video-conferencing. He said the nation is on a path where "no one should be left behind because of religion", adding that ideological differences are secondary when it comes to matters of the nation. PM Modi also released a postal stamp during the event. Last week, the media statement from the university had said that the Vice Chancellor, Professor Tariq Mansoor, has "appealed to all concerned to keep the Centenary Programme above politics". The premier university has had a thorny relation with the BJP, whose leaders have repeatedly criticised the university students and even suggested that the name of the institution be changed.
