AMU- was it a conspiracy?
By Obaid Nasir, Lucknow

Aligarh Muslim University has always been an eyesore in the eyes of communal and divisive forces of the country. Immediately after Partition a conspiracy was hatched to hand it over to Sikhs in lieu of Khalsa College Lahore. It was foiled by Maulana Azad and Dr. Zakir Husain with the support of Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru. This was followed by attempts to do away with its minority character and remove the word 'Muslim' from its name and to bring it at par with Osmania University, Hyderabad. Its hostel accommodating more than 27000 students were always considered dens of anti-national activity, irrespective of the fact that the Aligs have always played an important role in nation building .

The recent controversy over the arrest of an alleged ISI agent Abdul Mubeen and the subsequent developments are the pointer towards a well-thought-out strategy by communal forces to malign the university and the entire Muslim community. The entire operation was performed in such a blatant and absurd manner that even a fool will refuse to take the Tamasha seriously but unfortunately our brothers in media and administration are dancing at the tune of Bhagwa Brigade. 

On 3 September Abdul Mubeen a student of BUMS final residing in Habeeb Hall of the university was overpowered by plaincloth policemen in the university campus and bundled in a numberless Tata Sumo jeep which sped to an unknown destination. The VCs frantic phone calls to Delhi and Lucknow brought the news next day that the boy was arrested by Agra Police in connection with a bomb blast and is being produced before the chief judicial magistrate.

The second phase of the story is much more interesting and revealing. On 6 September Asstt. Central investigation officer Rajan Sharma is intercepted by the students of Habib hostel in mysterious circumstances. An alarm is raised, students gather and start shouting slogans and Rajan Sharma is allegedly beaten up. Message is sent to distt. and university administration. SP Aligarh contacts the VC who reaches the hostel immediately and controls the students. In the meantime students obtains from him a statement in which he makes certain startling revelations, which are as under:-

(1)That he was assigned the secret mission by the intelligence branch of UP Police. 
(2) Mubeen is an innocent, sincere and respectable person. His arrest is part of the conspiracy hatched by AGRA Police distt. Administration to malign the AMU 
(3) At the time of arrest/abduction Mubeen was unarmed and the RDX was later planted in his possession by Shashi Kant Sharma SHO Etmaduddaula Police station, Agra, ASI RP Singh constable Ainuddin and circle officer Civil Lines Aligarh Jagdish Sharma. 
These policemen were latter awarded by the U P government for their good work whereas SP Aligarh was transferred for not raiding the university campus to get Rajan Sharma released.
(4) He also revealed that SP (IB) Ram Narayan often asks him to enquire about certain Muslim boys but when we report that the boys are gentle and law-abiding he often loses his balance and uses filthy language against us. 

It may be said that Rajan Sharma gave the statement under duress. Any statement given to a police officer has no value in the eyes of law but any statement given before a magistrate has legal importance and is accepted as true and authentic. Rajan Sharma stood by his statement during a press conference in the presence of Distt. Magistrate, superintendent of Police and Vice Chancellor, himself a senior bureaucrat. However, UP administration refused to be realistic and just and continued with its arbitrary action against the students including confsicating their properties under sections 82 and 83 . UP administration was more interested in closing down the university sine die but Vice Chancellor Hamid Ansari bravely refused to oblige the administration. After a very long time the students, VC and teaching and non teaching staff displays a rare unity in foiling the nefarious designs of the administration.
