Aligarh: A magisterial inquiry has been ordered in connection with the violence over Mohammad Ali Jinnah's portrait that hung in Aligarh Muslim University campus, officials said.

KUTA calls for all necessary measures to prevent such attacks on minority institutions in future and also demands an immediate cessation of undue interference of few rogue politicians in the functioning of higher education institutions. And the row is now snowballing with the national head of All-India Muslim Mahasangh announcing a Rs 1 lakh reward to anyone who tears down Jinnah's posters and photos across the country.

As the tension escalated, the authorities suspended internet service in Aligarh district and imposed Section 144 to tackle the situation.

Twenty-eight students were injured in a lathi charge by the police. They also highlighted the recent news that Hindu students at AMU protected their Muslim co-students while the latter were doing namaz underlining the secular approach of the students which the fascist RSS seeks to undermine.

The Jinnah row started after BJP's Aligarh MP Satish Gautam wrote to AMU raising objections to the portrait.

Addressing AMU students, he said it is one of the leading universities in the country and they (the students) should be aware of the expectations the country has from them. We have assembled here to expose this politics and how right-wing people entered the campus with an intention to disturb the peaceful environment. The BJP is stoking Hindu -Muslim discord only for narrow political gains and Samajwadi Party will never allow the nefarious designs to take shape, "said he".
