AMU students' union leaders on indefinite relay hunger strike

"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.

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.
