ABVP seeks sedition case against AMU’s Kashmiri students

Agency News

Aligarh, 07 Sep 2019: The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has sought the lodging of a sedition case against a few Kashmiri students who allegedly held a protest march at the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) campus on Thursday evening against the nullification of Article 370.

ABVP activists burnt an effigy of the AMU Vice-Chancellor for permitting Kashmiri students to hold a demonstration inside campus on Thursday evening.

“Holding a protest against the abrogation of Article 370 is an anti-national act and the HRD Ministry should order a probe in the entire incident,” ABVP office bearer Situ Chaudhary said.

“A show cause notice has been issued to the organisers of this protest keeping in view the fact that we have made it mandatory for permission to be obtained before holding any protest inside the campus,” AMU Registrar Abdul Hamid said. The protest on Thursday was held without prior permission, he said.

There is zero tolerance for unlawful or anti-national activity on the campus, he said.
