Around 100 students gathered at Duck Point on the Aligarh Muslim University campus for the march. They proceeded to march to AMU’s Bab Said Gate, chanting slogans in support of the Palestinians and condemning Israel’s “occupation and atrocities against civilians”.

Proctor of Aligarh Muslim University Prof Muhammad Waseem Ali acknowledged the protest march but stressed that it took place without necessary permission for such activities on the university campus.

“No prior permission was taken or given from the students. We came to know about the gathering of 100 students at Bath Point. A team from the Proctoral Department was dispatched to control the students,” Professor Muhammad Wasim Ali said on Monday. But by then they had moved on.

“We are still assessing how many of them were AMU students and how many were outsiders who joined them. The university administration is addressing the issue, and discussing the relevant aspects. Discussions are being held,” Prof Ali added, confirming that all four students named in the police case were AMU students.

Meanwhile, the Aligarh police on Monday swung into action after receiving a report from the in-charge of the police station and assigned a circle officer to investigate the matter. A case was then registered against four AMU students.

Aligarh’s Civil Lines police received information about a protest march by students at the Aligarh Muslim University campus. Aligarh city police superintendent Mrigank Shekhar Pathak explained that the students were not allowed to organize such a protest march, which focused on an international issue and included the use of provocative and objectionable slogans. .

“Consequently, an inquiry was initiated by a police officer at the level of Circle Officer, and based on a report submitted by Sub-Inspector Azhar Hassan, in-charge of Police Outpost at Aligarh Civil Lines police station. Case registered, Pathak continued.

Two-time BJP Member of Parliament in Aligarh Satish Gautam strongly criticized the protest march and accused the AMU students of ignoring law and order.

“It appears that the students of Aligarh Muslim University have a tendency to indulge in activities that promote negativity in the country. Gautam said that our Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s anti-terror policy has received worldwide recognition. However, it seems that AMU is still stuck in the era when its students became terrorists and were dealt with by the armed forces.

“Israel is defending its sovereignty, and I stand by it,” he added, stressing his support for the state of Israel.
