Continuing their demonstration against the Citizenship (Modification) Act, hundreds of students of Aligarh Muslim University got a ‘Tiranga Yatra’ on Monday to condemn the cruelties dedicated against the trainees of Jawaharlal Nehru University on Sunday night.
This was their 2nd demonstration within 24 hours.
On Sunday night, they got a candle march in solidarity with the JNU students after news of violence in the university spread.
Archaeology Look for action
In a memorandum dealt with to the President of India, the trainees required instant opening of the university and hostels. The memorandum mentioned that Jamia Millia Islamia had opened based on schedule on Monday. It likewise demanded instant action versus the perpetrators of violence in JNU.
Remarkably, in the lack of a students’ union, the demonstration was led by non-resident trainees of different faculties.
” The federal government’s fascist stand on the CAA has actually made us unify by overcoming all our ideological and regional distinctions. In this demonstration, the conservatives, the liberals, and the atheists, all are joined,” said Ansab Aamir, secretary of the Literary and Debating Club.
Sumaiyya Khan, a student of law faculty, said the protests and the federal government action showed that the trainees had actually become the face of the Opposition in the country. “The method the BJP government and its associated groups had actually targetted JMI and AMU, and now JNU reveals that they remain in fear of students. In fact, they are in worry of the ‘educated’ who could translucent their program,” stated Ms. Khan, citing the recent discourse on the poetry of Faiz.
Archaeology ‘ We’re the fourth pillar’
” Faiz’s poetry is recited not only in JMI and AMU. It is an anthem of dissent and hope across the nation. We have likewise emerged as the 4th pillar of democracy as a large section of the media had actually failed to play its function,” she included.
Mr. Aamir pointed out that spontaneous protests in 12 universities throughout the nation on Sunday night after the JNU violence showed that it had become a pan-Indian trainee movement.
Security was beefed up around the school and SSP Akash Kulhari himself pertained to the university gate to receive the memorandum.
Previously, the Aligarh Muslim University Students’ Union (2018-19) had explained the violence in JNU as an act dedicated by “the masked thugs associated to ABVP having the patronage of the Union federal government”. “This vandalism is a blot on the constitutional democracy of India. The entry of males and females holding lathis, rods and other weapons into a campus, beating students, assaulting media fraternity and yet the police functioning as silent spectators for hours raises major concerns on the intent and conduct of cops,” stated M. Salman Imtiaz, president AMUSU (2018-2019).
Mr. Imtiaz met the injured at AIIMS and joined the demonstration march in Delhi on Monday.
The AMU Educators’ Association and the Aligarh Society of History and Archaeology also condemned the “fascist attack” on JNU.
