Notably, the BJP-led NDA government had taken a stand in the Supreme Court last month that Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) could not be categorized as a 'minority' institution.
Reacting on Centre's submission in the Supreme Court that the university was not a minority institution, Mulayam Singh Yadav said AMU should be continue as a minority institution. Calling it an injustice with the AMU and its students, Yadav said he will take the matter up in the Parliament. "AMU deserves minority character and I will take the issue before the parliament," Yadav added.
Dr Mohd.Alamgeer president of AMUSTA appeal minority character is our right so we have cleared all the misconceptions then Mr.Yadav assured us for all possible help and raising the voice in Parliament.
Yadav also expressed disappointment over the stance of the Centre in the Supreme Court. Yadav, while addressing the delegation, condemn the move of Centre on the issue. "It is injustice with the institution and its students. We will not be silent on it and fight for the students right thorough parliament platform," he added.
Samajwadi party MLC Ashu Malik, who led the delegation, said AMU Act was enacted in 1920 dissolving and incorporating Mohammadan Anglo-Oriental (MAO) College. "It concerns the education and advancement of the socially, economically-backward section of the Indian society, Muslims. The government has retracted from its earlier stand. We will ensure all possible support with the students and the institution to get justice," Malik said.
"AMU has a long history of minority status. Since its inception in 1875 as Mohammadan Anglo Oriental College, the university holds its unique characters that speak of its claim to be a minority institution. The great visionary Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, the founder of this university had established MAO College to serve the minorities and marginalized sections of the society," Malik added.
In January, attorney general Mukul Rohatgi had told a bench of Supreme Court that it is the stand of the Union of India that AMU is not a minority university. "As the executive government at the Centre, we can't be seen as setting up a minority institution in a secular state," he had said.
Following the meeting, Mohd. Perwez Siddiqui, president of Sir Syed minority foundation of India in AMU, said that the delegation appealed Mulayam Singh Yadav to built pressure on the Centre to file affidavit in favour of AMU as minority institution.
"Since 2006, when the UPA, in its second term, filed an appeal against the Allahabad High Court judgment, the law has not changed. How can the government now retract from that stand?," he added.
In 2006, a division bench of the Allahabad High Court struck down the provision of the AMU Amendment Act, 1981 scrapping AMU's minority status. In doing so, the Allahabad High Court upheld its earlier judgment that considered the minority status accorded to the university as "unconstitutional". The Central government then stood for the AMU's demand for minority status.
"The institution had been established of Central Legislature, which provides for a teaching and residential Muslim University at Aligarh. The Union government in 1981 passed the AMU (Amendment) Act, saying that it was established by the Muslims of India. The Act also revived the University Court, giving it full powers. The 1981 AMU Amendment Act Section 2 (l) has defined the university as "the educational institution of their choice established by the Minority of India, which originated as the MAO College, Aligarh and which was subsequently incorporated as the AMU," said Amir Choudhary, secretary, Sir Syed minority foundation of India in AMU.
