Give us AMU centre: Malegaon girls demand

Malegaon: On the occasion of the International Women’s Day, hundreds of girl students in Malegaon, in response to a survey done by, said, they want the government to give them an Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) offcampus in their Muslim-dominated textile town struggling since years to come out of the trauma it underwent due to the series of communal conflicts and two deadly terrorists attacks.

“On this occasion, we urge the government to grant us the permission to establish Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) off campus centre in Malegaon. This will perhaps compensate the loss we have incurred due to several riots and terrorist attacks that were staged in the city to keep us marginalized”, responded more than 95% of the girl students, who took part in the survey.
