Amid AMU Controversy, College Students In Aligarh Paste Jinnah’s Image In Toilets

The controversy over Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s portrait in Aligarh Muslim University took an ugly turn on Saturday when some students from Dev Samaj College, backed by certain right-wing outfits, pasted the Pakistan founder’s pictures in public toilets across the city. In another development, the portrait of AMU founder Sir Syed Ahmad Khan disappeared from the PWD guest house.


Aligarh district magistrate CB Singh said that he has sought a report from the SDM in both the incidents. The DM, however, said, “PWD guest house is a state property and the decision on selection of pictures is made by the government.” One of the students TOI spotted pasting the picture inside a loo, said, “The right place for people like him who divided India is a toilet and not an educational institution.”
