Two students of the Aligarh Muslim University have been booked for an allegedly objectionable post against former Union Home Minister Lal Krishna Advani. The Police said that further investigation is underway and if necessary, action will be taken against the students Talha Manna and Sharjeel Usmani.

Circle Officer, Civil Lines, Anil Samania told reporters, “Anil Chauhan, district spokesperson of BJP Yuva Morcha, along with five-six other people have registered a complaint at Civil Lines Police Station and an FIR against two persons have been lodged due to the “objectionable post” by them on social media, under IT Act and Section 153 A.”

As per some reports, the name of the District Spokesperon of BJP Yuva Morcha is Prateek Chauhan. Chauhan, in his complaint, said the students had shared a post on Facebook that called for a protest at the Kennedy House lawns in the University to mark the anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition. As per Chauhan, the post stated “Punish those guilty of Babri Demolition” and had a picture of senior BJP leader L K Advani. He accused the students of “disturb the peace of the city by holding protest against Babri mosque demolition and undermining the Supreme Court’s recent judgment” in the Ayodhya case.

Usmani believes that the Police were trying to intimidate him by filing the case. “They don’t want us to remember Babri Masjid. But we will never forget and never forgive the people, who were involved in the destruction of Babri Masjid,” he told Outlook. “There were five speakers, including myself and Talha Mannan, all university students, who addressed the gathering. The meeting ended peacefully and we all went back to our respective hostels,” Usmani said. He also said that such a meeting has been organized every year to mark the anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition.
