Reports have appeared in sections of the media which attempt to connect the AMU to the alleged activities of a former student who has been detained by the Agra police. Such insinuation are malicious,besides being baseless. The AMU is an educational institution of international importance. It has over 25000 students drawn from all parts of the country. The University campus,like every other University campus in the country,is an open place,freely accessible to the University community as well as to the public at large.The allegation that there are ‘training camps’ within the campus is false. The insinuation that the alleged activities of one or more individual, who studied or are studying in this educational institution,reflect in any way on the University has no basis in fact and is calculated to sow seeds of distrust amongst the public.
A news item appeared in the Hindi daily Dainik Jagran, Agra on 13 September 2000 concerning the Registrar of the AMU, S.M. Afzal, IPS, is false, baseless and slanderous. The registrar who in fact rescued the IB officer held by students, was accused of complicity in the episode. The university has initiated legal proceedings against the newspaper.
The AMU Staff Association has urged the Uttar Pradesh government not to take any step which could escalate problems on the campus and destabilize the university’s functioning.
The staff Association, which held an emergency meeting here on 14 September handed over a memorandum to the district magistrate asking the union government to institute a judicial or CBI inquiry into the recent events in the campus, including the arrest of one of its students in connection with the recent bomb blasts in the state.
President of the staff association Humayun Murad told reporters later that a judicial or CBI probe would be the only way to clear the air and restore the university’s reputation.
