AMU student suspended for criticising order


as reported by Staff Reporter, Published in HINDU


NEW DELHI: An Aligarh Muslim University student, Md. Adil Hossain, has alleged that he has been placed under suspension for speaking out against the university' stand on the issue of homosexuality and for using the RTI Act to seek information against what he alleged “financial bungling at AMU”.


A student of M.A. (Previous) Mass Communication, Adil has alleged that he has been penalised for criticising the suspension of Dr. Siras for his alleged homosexual orientation and his subsequent death. The student has alleged that the university has punished him for speaking about Dr. Siras's suspension in the media and on his blog.


“Probably I am the first student in the entire country to face suspension from any educational institution for criticising the present administration on account of financial bungling as proved in the Principal Accountant General's Report on the Internet as mentioned in the suspension order,” Adil alleged.


“I am also being victimised by the AMU administration as I openly lashed out against them during the controversy surrounding Dr. Siras. I am also the only student who spoke out against the Local Intelligence Unit, the official spy agency of AMU, which snoops on its students and teachers …I have filed numerous RTI application on the LIU and financial bungling at AMU and I think I am also being targeted for that,” Adil has alleged in his letter.


However, AMU spokesperson Rahat Abrar said Adil has been suspended for various incidents of indiscipline including blocking the road and protesting against a power cut caused by a storm. “There was a storm and the university's power supply was disrupted.


He instigated other students to stage a protest, even though there was no electricity in the entire area because of the storm.”


‘Defamatory remarks'


The spokesperson said Adil also made defamatory remarks against the university when a student lost his life while trying to cross a railway track. University officials said a detailed inquiry will be conducted and Adil will be asked to appear before the committee conducting the inquiry.
