After the new turn of events, DMC has issued a further notice to the Registrar of Jamia reducing the time given for reply to 25 October. 

In its earlier notice to Jamia, DMC had told it: “Apparently JMI authorities are unaware about the international BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement in which many universities in the East and West are boycotting Israel which is occupying Palestinian lands and is subjecting Palestinians in the occupied territories to worst inhuman treatment.
