No decision on removal of Jinnah's portrait yet: AMU
The information was shared by Satya Pal Singh, Minister of State for HRD, in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha
The Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) is yet to take a decision on removing a portrait of Muhammad Ali Jinnah from the office of its students' union, an issue that had triggered a controversy in May, Parliament was informed today.
The information was shared by Satya Pal Singh, Minister of State for HRD, in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha.
BJP MP from Aligarh Satish Gautam had objected to the portrait of the founder of Pakistan on the walls of the AMU students' union office and written to the vice-chancellor of the university, seeking its removal.
A function to grant life membership of the students' union to former vice-president Hamid Ansari, scheduled on the same day, was called off and Ansari had to return to Delhi.
