AMU suspends Kashmiri students for trying to hold prayer meeting for Hizbul commander
There was a heated exchange between the AMU Students' Union leaders and the Kashmiri students but they finally moved out of the area, Kidwai said, adding three Kashmiri students were suspended for trying to hold an unlawful gathering.
He said the university has made it clear that there was zero tolerance for any act which would even remotely be described as anti-national.
AMUSU president Faizul Hasan told that he had always championed the cause of freedom of speech but any act of treason or terror was unacceptable to the union.
He said they will not allow the university to be defamed by any person who indulges in such unlawful activity.
Meanwhile, BJP lawmaker from Aligarh Satish Gautam said those trying to hold a prayer meeting for Wani at the AMU campus should be expelled.
The 27-year-old Wani, who quit PhD studies in Allied Geology and joined the militant ranks in January this year, was killed at Shatgund village in Handwara area of Jammu and Kashmir's Kupwara district during the encounter on Thursday.
