Aligarh: In the aftermath of the deadly Pulwama terror attack, the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) has issued an advisory to its Kashmiri students cautioning them against moving out of the campus as a precautionary measure. The advisory comes after protests broke out in several parts of this city after the attack.
“The university authorities are maintaining constant vigil on law and order situation on the campus, especially in the wake of highly inflammatory social media posts emanating from the city. We are very clear that there is going to be zero tolerance on our part towards any act of lawlessness, especially one which smacks of anti-national activity even remotely,” AMU Proctor Professor Mohsin Khan said while speaking to PTI.
Earlier, the University had suspended a Kashmiri student Basim Hilal, after he allegedly hailed the Pulwama attack. Hilal on his tweet had showered praise on the Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) which had claimed responsibility for the attack. “High on JAISH (e Mohammad),” the student had tweeted, soon after the deadly incident.
“Kashmir-origin undergraduate student Basim Hilal, suspended from the university after an objectionable tweet following the Pulwama outrage, is no longer at the campus. An FIR was lodged at the Civil Lines police station against Hilal on Friday after the post went viral on social media,” Khan said.
On Thursday, 40 CRPF personnel were killed and five injured in one of the deadliest terror attacks in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir when a suicide bomber rammed a vehicle carrying over 100 kg of explosives into their bus.
More than 2,500 Central Reserve Police Force personnel, many of them returning from leave to rejoin duty in the Valley, were travelling in the convoy of 78 vehicles when they were ambushed on the Srinagar-Jammu highway at Latoomode in Awantipora in south Kashmir.
