'AMU National Centres aimed at providing dignified existence to minorities'

Malegaon: A Division Bench of the Kerala High Court on Monday directed the Aligarh Muslim University not to open its special centre in Malappuram and admit students to any course without putting in place sufficient infrastructure and complying with the norms of the university.

The Bench comprising Justice C.N. Ramachandran Nair and Justice P.S. Gopinathan passed the interim order on a writ petition filed by High Court lawyer K. Janardhanan, reports The Hindu.

The interim order would remain in force for 10 days.


According to The Hindu, the court also directed the Centre and the State government to express their views on the proposal to set up the centre at Malappuram.


According to the petitioner, the university's proposal to set up the centre is against the Aligarh University Act and Rules. As per the university law, a centre can be set up only within a 25-km radius of the mosque of the university.

The university was taking steps to set up the centre without making any amendment to the university law.


Besides, he contended that the centre was going to be set up in a building constructed long back for housing a hospital.

In fact, the building did not have sufficient infrastructure. He sought to restrain the university from starting the centres at Malappuram.


Interestingly, Kerala Education Minister MA Baby after visiting the building recently had said that the interim centre selected near Perinthalmanna in Kerala for beginning the AMU off-campus centre’s classes this year is satisfactory.


The interim centre for the Aligarh Regional campus in Kerala is arranged at the two-storey building in an 80-cent land near Perinthalmanna in Malappuram. The representatives of the AMU also had expressed their agreement to the interim centre.
