New Delhi: Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal’s inquiry order against Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) Vice Chancellor is receiving flak from the top Indian Muslim community leaders and heads of leading socio-religious organizations. Terming the move as uncalled for in a statement released yesterday the leaders demanded its immediate revocation.

 

“The allegations made against the VC are from some vested interest groups who feel their interests were not safe under his leadership”, said the Muslim leaders putting their weight behind Aligarh Muslim University  (AMU) VC Prof P. K. Abdul Aziz.

 

“It is shocking that the HRD Minister has seen it fit to order an inquiry against Prof. P.K. Abdul Aziz, the Vice Chancellor of the Aligarh Muslim University in respect of certain allegations leveled by some vested interest groups who have their self interest and self aggrandisement agenda. They have been using the University as their private fiefdom deriving great financial benefit from the building construction and uniform contracts etc. If any VC comes in their way, they oppose him as they earlier opposed the former VC M. N. Farooqui and forced Nasim Ahmad, the then VC, to flee from the University”, the community leaders noted in a joint statement.

 

The statement signed by All India Milli Council Secretary General Dr M Manzoor Alam, Delhi State Minorities Commission Chairman Kamal Farooqi, All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat (AIMM) President Dr Zafarul Islam Khan and others further said, “Nobody interested in the affairs and the welfare of the AMU, including the Vice Chancellor, should be scared of an inquiry as nothing cognizable is to be found against the Vice Chancellor, but an inquiry at this crucial juncture at the behest of some vested interests who are out to pressurize and blackmail the Vice Chancellor for their ulterior motives, will prove detrimental to the AMU which has been put on the right track and a very congenial academic atmosphere is prevailing on the campus. The examinations are being conducted on time, sessions are going on as per schedule, for the first time in the history of the university, 75 per cent attendance of the students has been ensured and the students are busy in their studies with a complete sense of security etc. Such an inquiry, if carried forward, may embolden this vested interest group and demoralise this and future VCs, apart from disturbing the peaceful atmosphere at the campus.”

 

They said the inquiry into the allegations of financial irregularities against the VC is uncalled for as the Uttar Pradesh (UP) audit body has cleared him of any such charges.

 

“The allegations of financial irregularities against the VC lose their significance altogether in view of the report of the Principal Accountant General (Civil Audit, UP) on behalf of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India which had categorically reported that there were no financial irregularities committed by the AMU,” they said.

 

The leaders have demanded the ministry to revoke the inquiry order as it will hamper the university’s expansion plan. If not revoked, they have decided to meet PM and UPA Chairperson.

 

“If the present unproductive and uncalled for inquiry, which will do a great harm to the AMU particularly at a time when its branch is being opened in Murshidabad (West Bengal) and Malappuram (Kerala) is not stopped, the community leaders have decided to meet the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and the UPA Chairperson Mrs. Sonia Gandhi to apprise them of their reservation against the move.
