SP leader Azam Khan’s university in Rampur raided by police, hundreds of books and manuscripts stolen from madrasa recovered

SP Ajay Pal Sharma confirmed that around 500 books stolen from the Madrasa have been recovered so far from the Jauhar University Library. He added that many of these books are 100-150 years old.

Things have not been moving in sexist Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan’s favour these days. A day after Azam Khan sought an apology in Lok Sabha for his creepy remarks against BJP MP, Rama Devi, books stolen from a madrasa were found in his university when UP police conducted raids at his Mohammad Ali Jauhar University in Rampur on Tuesday morning.


The police conducted search operations at ‘Mumtaz Central Library’ of Mohammad Ali Jauhar University following a complaint by the principal of Madrasa Aliya, wherein he stated that 9000 books and rare manuscripts from the Madrasa have been stolen. The madrasa was established in 1774.

According to the allegations, many of these books and manuscripts have been hidden in the Mohammad Ali Jauhar University.

SP Ajay Pal Sharma confirmed that around 500 books stolen from the Madrasa have been recovered so far from the Jauhar University Library. He added that many of these books are 100-150 years old.

The SP said that four employees have been detained so far. The investigation of the case is still going on and many others may be questioned. The staff at the library has, however, not been able to provide any detail of the seized books. A large number of police forces have been deployed outside the premises.


It is pertinent to note here that Madrasa Aliya, from where the books allegedly went missing, is under the Mohammad Ali Jauhar trust. This is the same trust under which Mohammad Ali Jauhar University had also been established in the year 2006. However, as per reports, after several land grabbing cases were reported against SP leader Azam Khan, the lease deed of Madrasa Aliya was revoked last week.

Recently, as many as 34 cases of land grabbing have been registered against the Samajwadi Party’ powerful MP. Criminal cases against Khan have been lodged at the Azim Nagar police station in Rampur on the complaints of 26 farmers.

The farmers have alleged that Azam Khan had illegally detained them and pressured them to sign forged sale deeds to acquire several thousand hectares of land from them. But when they didn’t do so, the land was forcefully grabbed.

Owing to his long history of involvement in land grabbing cases, the Senior Samajwadi Party (SP) leader, who is infamous for making controversial statements, might soon be listed as a land mafia on the Anti-Bhoo Mafia (anti-land mafia) portal of the Uttar Pradesh government.
