Indian Muslim org Welcomes New Admission Policy of the Aligarh Muslim University AMU

Policy Affirms both Minority and National Character 

Policy is in Full Accord with Law

AMU Remains Open to Candidates of All Religions, Castes, Class and Races

AIMMM Cautions Secular Forces against Campaign by Vested Interests

New Delhi, 11 May, 2005: Shri Syed Shahabuddin, President of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), has issued the following Statement:

"The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) welcomes the decision of the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) to institute a new admission policy by reserving 25% for candidates selected exclusively on merit, 50% for Muslims selected by merit from amongst Muslim candidates from all over the country, 20% for internal candidates also selected on the basis of merit, leaving 5% for nomination by the V.C., with merit to be determined by common all India test conducted by the University.

This policy affirms the character of the AMU as a minority institution as well as its national character without restricting admission to Muslims only or disregarding the claim of internal students and takes the revolutionary step of reducing nomination to 5%.

The admission policy is fully in accord with the recognition of the AMU by the Union Government as a minority institution and the principles and procedures for admission to such institutions elaborated by the Supreme Court.

The AIMMM is convinced that this will help the AMU to fulfill its statutory mandate under Section 5(2)(c) of the AMU Act, to promote the educational advancement of the Muslim community.

The AIMMM considers the criticism of the admission policy on the ground that it violates Section 8 of the Act as misconceived, as the AMU shall continue to admit students of all creeds, castes, classes and races.

However, the AIMMM is apprehensive of a mischievous campaign by vested interests against the admission policy and calls upon the secular forces to counter this propaganda and support the new policy in the interest of national integration and secular order."
