Aligarh: The AMU has issued an advisory to its Kashmiri students asking them “not to move out of the campus” as a precautionary measure after protests broke out in this city in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack, varsity authorities said.

In the deadliest attack on security forces in Kashmir last Thursday that left 40 CRPF personnel dead, the “fidayeen” (suicide attacker) was identified as Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist Adil Ahmad from Kakapora in Pulwama.

Several parts of this city witnessed protests after the attack, prompting the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) authorities to issue an advisory to its Kashmiri students cautioning them against moving out of the campus.

AMU Proctor Professor Mohsin Khan told PTI, “The university authorities are maintaining constant vigil on law and order situation on the campus, especially in the wake of highly inflammatory social media posts emanating from the city.”

Khan added, “We are very clear that there is going to be zero tolerance on our part towards any act of lawlessness, especially one which smacks of anti-national activity even remotely.”

The AMU proctor said it suspended a Kashmiri student for his alleged objectionable tweet in connection with the Pulwama attack.

“Kashmir-origin undergraduate student Basim Hilal, suspended from the university after an objectionable tweet following the Pulwama outrage, is no longer at the campus. An FIR was lodged at the Civil Lines police station against Hilal on Friday after the post went viral on social media,” Khan said. -PTI

  1. Proactivity which is shown by the AMU authorities is highly commendable. Any anti national activity cannot be tolerated. Even I would suggest authorities to book people who are celebrating this despicable gory of violence under IPC 124A{sedition}, 153 A{causing enmity between communities}
    295A{hurting the religious feelings}. The religious fundamentalism is what our society is infested, we require stern, decisive action coupled with undaunting fidelity towards nationalism. Nation is what its people make it, at time of grief it should be our resolve to make sure we must fight continuously and with courage against people who want to wither away this great nation. And as a citizen we must look that are we worthy enough for a soldier to die protecting us.
