AMU students' union leaders on indefinite relay hunger strike

Not defending Mohammad Ali Jinnah or his portrait AMU students write to President Ram Nath Kovind

"I demand AMU should be named after Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh", Captain Abhimanyu said addressing a gathering at a ground-breaking ceremony of a Jat Dharamsala in Rewari. Now the portrait of Muhammad Ali Jinnah is displayed in the varsity but sadly no picture of illustrious Raja Mahendra Pratap never has been installed.

Questioning its presence on the campus, he said there was no justification for displaying a photo of the man who was responsible for the creation of Pakistan. The contribution of the King should not be forgotten. "It will be most befitting to name the university after such a great personality of modern India".

Earlier this month, Aligarh's BJP MP Satish Gautam asked AMU to explain why it displays a portrait of Jinnah.

NASA's next Mars rover mission to carry tiny helicopter
The Mars Helicopter's development began in 2013 at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California. But if it is successful, it will be the first step in using helicopters as aerial scouts for rovers.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath recently cleared his stand on the ongoing controversy over Muhammad Ali Jinnah and said that "A person who is responsible for country's division can not be respected".

The Aligarh Muslim University Students' Union (AMUSU) leaders began an indefinite relay hunger strike late on Saturday night.

In their letter to Kovind, the Aligarh Muslim University Students Union (AMUSU) alleged that no satisfactory action has been taken by the Uttar Pradesh government yet. They also said that the Aligarh district administration was yet to act against those who trespassed into the campus and indulged in acts of violence on May 2.

Apple's Tim Cook urges Duke graduates to think hard about data privacy
The concern for privacy is more than ever and it seems like the companies are experiencing a hard time fending off these attacks. Cook also reiterated his belief that technology will continue to illuminate and expedite the graduates' future career paths.

"Semester examinations of various graduation and post-graduation courses including BTech, BA, BSc, BCom, MA, MSc, MCom and Medicine Diplomas were today conducted peacefully at 51 different centres in the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU)", a statement by the AMU said.

Ansari, who was present inside the campus then, felt that he was a target, he would have certainly filed a complaint with the police. "He donated land for the university without any hesitation and with an objective of education to all, irrespective of religion, but there is a portrait of Jinnah who divided this country". They also sat on an indefinite dharna after a clash with the police on 2nd.

The portrait of Jinnah along with other portraits of Mohandas Gandhi, Rajendra Prasad, Jaya Prakash Narayan and Mother Teresa has been existing since 1938.

Members of the alumni association of the Jamia Millia Islamia as well as the Jawaharlal Nehru Unversity (JNU) also joined the "silent protest" against the attack on the students of the institute, allegedly by members of right-wing Hindu Yuva Vahini group.
