After JNU & HCU, BJP's next target seems to be Aligarh Muslim University. Here's why

Political parties are seeking to reap dividends from the recent Jawaharlal Nehru University row. The BJP and RSS in particular are working overtime to take the nationalism debate to other parts of the country.

RSS and its affiliates are circulating the footage of "anti-India" slogans being chanted in JNU, even though the authenticity of the videos are under dispute.

The wrangling over the 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' slogan is also part of the same strategy. Now, right-wing forces are searching for new battlegrounds to wage this ideological fight and poll-bound Uttar Pradesh appears to be their next chosen front.

If sources within the Sangh and the BJP are to be believed, their next target is Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).

"The law and the Constitution are being flouted in some academic campuses because of the politics of appeasement. There is nothing wrong in raising this issue. AMU is not a minority institution on paper. A false impression has been created to this effect," says one RSS leader on the condition of anonymity, disclosing that the organisation will be raising the AMU issue soon.

"The university has been forcibly made a bastion of the minorities. As a result, Dalits and other backward communities are being denied reservation in jobs and admissions," he adds.

Clearly, this seems to be an attempt to drive a wedge between Muslims on one hand and backward communities on the other.
