The Aligarh Muslim University has issued show-cause notices to several students for organising a Tiranga Yatra in the University Campus on Tuesday. One of the students is Ajay Singh, the grandson of BJP MLA Dalveer Singh. According to the University administration, the students did not take permission before organising the bike rally.
The notice states that the students not only organised the rally without prior permission but also disturbed the ongoing classes. It further reads that the rally has created ‘fear among the bonafide students’ some anti-social elements and outsiders were allegedly invited in the rally.
The students have to submit their response by Wednesday failing which action would be taken against them. Professor Mohsin Khan, the proctor of the University said that the notice was issued to the students as they had organised the rally during teaching hours which caused a disturbance in the campus.
On the contrary, the students have questioned the intention of the University administration for denying the permission to organise the Tiranga Yatra. Ajay Singh said that he had applied for the permission on January 19 but the administration did not respond.
“The proctor office has no objections when students protest and raise slogans in the campus against the killing of a terrorist in J&K, or burn papers after implementation of 10% reservation for economically backward. But they have a problem when we take out a Tiranga rally with slogans of Bharat Mata Ki Jai?” Singh was quoted by Times of India.
Reports stated that the yatra was organised to raise awareness about donating for the families of martyred soldiers through the mobile app.
