The decision to boycott Mulayam’s visit was taken at an emergent meeting of the executive committee of AMUTA, Hours after the teachers made the announcement Saturday, a group of students took out a march on the campus opposing Mulayam’s visit.
AMUTA secretary Aftab Alam said the SP government failed to tackle the communal violence and “also abdicated its responsibility for relief and rehabilitation in the aftermath of the violence and due to extreme cold around hundreds of children lost their lives”.
He said Mulayam falsely claimed there were no victims left in the relief camps and those staying there were conspirators planted by Congress and BJP to sully the image of his party’s government.
“Shockingly, Mulayam also opposed the Communal Violence (Prevention, Control and Rehabilitation of Victims) Bill,” Alam claimed.
Alam said hosting Mulayam on the AMU campus will hurt the sentiments of riot victims in particular and Muslims in general.
The AMUTA has also condemned providing Kennedy Hall by the AMU administration for the seminar and demanded the Vice-Chancellor to immediately cancel the permission.
“We will stage protest at the AMU entrance dates,” Allam said.
“We will forcibly close all the four main gates of the campus on Monday and if administration will create any hurdle, we will throw shoes on Mulayam’s cavalcade and wave black flags,” said AMU student union president Syed Umar Ahmad Qadri, who is also state secretary of the UP Congress Committee,
Undeterred, the event organisers have announced to hold a welcome march on the campus on Sunday in support of Mulayam’s visit.
