Aligarh Muslim University, located in Uttar Pradesh and always surrounded by controversy, has completed 100 years. on this occasion Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed AMU through video conferencing and he said that whatever the religion. The country is always classy for everyone.
Aligarh Muslim University has been synonymous with controversy in a way. Sometimes there is a controversy over Mohammad Ali Zina’s posters in the university, and sometimes, there is a protest of students against the citizenship law.
The 100th anniversary of this JNU-like university came to an end, and on this occasion, Prime Minister Modi addressed the students as the chief guest.
Because of Corona, he made the speech via video conferencing. For the first time since 1964, and Prime Minister of the country has attended an AMU event.
In his address, Prime Minister Modi spoke of inter-religious harmony in AMU. He also talked about the government’s plan to reach out to Muslims. He made it clear that religion is anything. The development of the country is paramount for everyone.
The distance from Aligarh Muslim University to Delhi is only 120 kilometers. Yet, no Prime Minister of the country has gone to AMU after Jawaharlal Nehru and Lal Bahadur Shastri.
Prime Minister Modi’s address to the AMU is also important because the BJP government is considered anti-Muslim by some Muslim political parties.
This is also a big step for social reach out. At the same time, it is a step towards earning the trust of the youth of AMU.
His message is clear that Aligarh Muslim University is part of the country. Due to laws like CAA and NRC, there was inconsistency in the minds of many people towards the attitude of the government. This can be removed with a single step. At a time when elections are also to be held in Bengal, Tamil Nadu, etc., in the coming days, the Prime Minister’s address may also help in garnering Muslim votes there.
