AMU not responsible for Partition
Aligarh: Mohammad Azam Khan, UP’s Urban Development Minister, said that Indian Muslims are not responsible for the country’s partition. Congress’s refusal to accept the Cabinet Mission Plan led to such an unfortunate event, he said. Khan was speaking at the annual function of AMU Law Society on 18 August. "Religions cannot be blamed for the partition of any country. The
creation of Bangladesh is the proof of this fact," said Azam Khan. He also solicited the support of AMU in the establishment of another university at Rampur which he said was one of the cherished dreams of Sir Syed. The minister announced the grant of 20 million rupees for the development of roads and other civic amenities in Aligarh. Half of this amount will be spent on the development of the new campus of AMU.
