AMU Student Suspended For Raising Religious Slogans During Republic Day Celebrations

Aligarh: A video from Thursday’s Republic Day showed several students in National Cadet Corps (NCC) uniforms chanting “Allah hu Akbar” in front of a flagpole flying the Tricolor.

Due to the event, the university administration was mandated by the Aligarh Superintendent of Police to take stern action against the students who started the sloganeering.

A day after a video of some students chanting religious chants during a Republic Day event outside the university went viral on social media, the Aligarh Muslim University’s administration is yet to identify the student who started the sloganeering.

In the footage, only one student, according to the university administration, appeared to be waving slogans outside the varsity campus.

The student’s phone was off when the university attempted to reach him. The student has since been suspended, and a three-person committee has been assembled by the university administration to look into the situation.

AMU’s Proctor, Professor Wasim Ali, said, “We have registered the incident in our records. We definitely do not support incidents of this nature, thus we have taken decisive action and suspended the student awaiting an investigation. A three-member group has been assembled to conduct additional inquiry. This is the first such event, so we urge students to refrain from engaging in actions that harm the university’s reputation.”

“All national festivals are celebrated with great pomp in the university,” Wasim Ali said.
