Posters inside AMU campus slamming VC Tariq Mansoor for condoling former UP CM Kalyan Singh's death.

AMU posters against VC: Posters deriding Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) Vice-Chancellor Tariq Mansoor for condoling the death of former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh have cropped up inside the university campus. Mansoor, in a statement, had expressed grief over the death of Kalyan Singh, who was the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh when the Babri masjid was demolished in 1992. 

The poster apparently put up by 'Students of Aligarh Muslim University' described Mansoor's act as an 'unforgiving crime'.

"The condolent words of the Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University on the demise of ex-chieg minister of Uttar Pradesh Kalyan Singh is not only a matter of shame but also hurting religious sentiments of our community since it  is against the ethos, culture and tradition of AMU. Kalyan Singh is not only a main culprit in the demolition of Babri Masjid but also an offender of disdain with regard to the Supreme Court order," the poster stated. 

Reacting sharply, state minister Mohsin Raza said the VC acted as per "our culture" and putting up such posters was an attempt to vitiate the atmosphere.

"If some persons of Talibani 'soch' are there, we will also treat them accordingly," he said.

The minister said the matter will be probed and strict action will be taken so that it will set an example for others.

"This is a university of Hindustan. Taliban (Afghanistan's militia group) is not here. This is an attempt to vitiate the atmosphere," said Raza, who is the minister of state for minority welfare, Muslim Waqf and Haj.

AMU's response 

AMU Proctor Professor Wasim Ali described the incident as the work of some miscreants. He said that the university campus is empty and none of the students are currently residing inside. We received information about such posters at two-three places inside the university and they were subsequently removed. The VC has given orders for an investigation in the matter, Ali added.
