Aligarh Muslim University Students’ Union strongly condemns police lathicharge on Benaras Hindu University students peaceful agitation

By Abdul Rouf

Aligarh: The Aligarh Muslim University Students’ Union (AMUSU) has strongly condemned the brutal Police lathicharge on the peaceful agitation of students of the Benaras Hindu University (BHU). The President of AMUSU, Abdullah Azzam, said that the denial of students union to the BHU students is an infringement of Political Rights of the students. The AMUSU President strongly advocated the restoration of the elected students Union at BHU.

As of now, BHU students are represented by adhoc students’ council. However, the Lyngdoh recommendations clearly state that the elections of the students union must be held between 6 to 8 weeks from the date of commencement of the academic session. Moreover, it categorically negates the creation of any other arbitrary bodies’ in lieu of students union. As the representative of students at Aliagrh Muslim University, I stand for the democratic rights of students at BHU.

BHU Students Protest1“The BHU administration should stop the attempts to stifle the peaceful students’ movement and grant them their due rights,” said AMUSU President.

“It is also surprising to see the violations of democratic rights in the Lok Sabha constituency of the Prime Minister. The failure of restoring democratic rights in the constituency from where PM himself was elected is an alarming sign for the entire nation. The Prime minister should break the silence and uphold constitutional rights of every citizen in the country,” stated Mr. Azzam.

  1. Aligarh University Union ‘s president rightly supported the Banaras Hindu University students democratic rights of Association. Disbanding the Student Union should be treated as a crime and infringement of the constitutional rights of the students as Citizens of the largest democracy in the world. We take great Pride in being the largest democracy of the world.

    Taking away the right of association exposes us in a negative way in the global village. We condemn such practices, and applaud the AMUSU stand. The government and the Parliament should act to end this undemocratic action of the BHU administration.
