The Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) on Wednesday appealed to the institution’s fraternity, including students, to keep its centenary programme “above politics” as it announced that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had accepted an invitation to address the centenary celebrations on December 22. The event will be held online.
In a letter to the “staff, students and other members of the AMU fraternity”, Vice-Chancellor Tariq Mansoor appealed to “all concerned to keep centenary programme above politics, just as we keep Republic Day, Independence Day, Milad un Nabi, Gandhi Jayanti above differences”.
