Mani Shankar Aiyar

Clashes with Hindu and Muslim students were reported from many parts of the campus forcing the government to suspend internet services last Friday and imposition of Section 144 to maintain peace in the town.

On the ongoing controversy of Mohammad Ali Jinnah's portrait, the Dargah Aala Hazrat in Bareilly has issued a fatwa against the portrait and has urged the Muslims to not support the portrait.

The students are asking for a judicial probe into the "police inaction" and the manner in which a row erupted after a BJP MP objected to the portrait of Pakistan founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah, hanging at the AMU student union office.

University authorities were in constant touch with district authorities and holding regular talks with protesting students to "chalk out a roadmap for complete normalcy", he said.

When asked to comment on the AMU row's impact on Karnataka elections, he said, "Indian Muslims, in general, are patriot". The police said two youths were arrested later. Terming the AMU Students Union as Pakistani agent, they demanded NSA against the people involved in putting Jinnah's portrait in AMU.

The exams, postponed because of the unrest on the campus, are now set to begin on May 12.

Aligarh: The students of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), who are protesting since May 2 against the brutal police action in the university campus, on Sunday recieved the supports from civil society members, lawyers and students' organisations of other universities.

AMU officials have said that Mr Jinnah was a founder member of the university's court and was granted life membership of the student union.
