Aligarh: The administration of Aligarh Muslim University identified the student who started chanting religious slogans a day after a video went viral on social media.
In the footage that surfaced on social media, according to the university administration, only one student appeared to be waving slogans outside the varsity campus.
Wahiduzzma, a West Bengali first-year BA student, has been recognised for chanting slogans.
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 formed by the university administration to look into the matter.
AMU’s proctor, Professor Wasim Ali, said, “We have recorded the matter in our records.” We absolutely do not support incidents of this nature, and thus we have taken strong action and suspended the student pending an inquiry. A three-member committee has been formed to conduct additional inquiries. “This is the first such event, so we urge the students not to indulge in such activities that can dent the university’s image.”
A video from Thursday’s Republic Day showed several students in National Cadet Corps (NCC) uniforms screaming “Allah hu Akbar” in front of a flagpole with the Tricolour.
The Aligarh Superintendent of Police issued a directive to the university administration to take stern action against students in response to the incident.
