Aligarh: The Aligarh Muslim University Vice Chancellor, Prof. P. K. Abdul Azis while addressing a press conference expressed happiness as it is a moment of exultation for the entire AMU community as the Visitor of Aligarh Muslim University has approved the amendments /additions in the statutes of the University for the establishment and maintenance of centres at Murshidabad (West Bengal) and Malappuram (Kerala) as Institutions of the University.

Prof. Azis said that the Aligarh Muslim University is adding a glorious chapter in its long history of serving the national cause. The permission received from the Hon’ble President of India in her capacity as the Visitor of the University has further unlocked the potential of AMU. It is the greatest tribute our nation is paying to the legendary contributions made by Sir Syed Ahmad Khan for the promotion of education and scientific temper among the people of India.

The Vice Chancellor said that the commencement of Aligarh Muslim University Centres in Murshidabad (in West Bengal) and Malappuram (in Kerala), indicating the birth of two Universities. These centres will be under the absolute authority and control of AMU Executive Council and Court. By 2020, when AMU will be celebrating its Centenary as a Central University, these centres will be full-fledged campuses with potential to become universities.

“On the occasion of 193rd Birth Anniversary of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, I dedicate the two centres as a fitting tribute to the founder of Aligarh Muslim University”, Prof. P. K. Abdul Azis declared.

He called upon the students, teachers and other staff to display the vision and dynamism needed to achieve the goals. He urged the AMU fraternity to come forward and support the establishment of these two centres as world class centres for higher education, research and training. He said that nation building was a mission that everyone in AMU should carry forward.

Prof. Azis exhorted the AMU community to reaffirm its unflinching commitment to the great ideals of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan.

He said that AMU got overwhelming response from the West Bengal and Kerala governments as they provided land free of cost to the Aligarh Muslim University for establishing these centres. He said that several state governments including Assam, Haryana and Rajasthan are also approaching the University to establish centres.

The Visitor of the University has approved the amendments/additions to the Statutes 6A, 6B, 8A, 14(1), 16(1), 17(2), 18(1), 27(1), 29(2), 35 and 36. The new amendment provides for the Directors of the Centres be declared as the officers of the University. Provision has been made for the appointment of Coordinators of the Units of the Centres. These Coordinators will also represent the University Court. The Directors of the Centres would be eligible to represent on the Executive Council and Academic Council. Further, the Executive Council has been empowered to appoint the Controller of Examinations and Directors of the Centres.

Directors of the Centres would be the members on the Selections committee for the appointment of teachers of the respective centres.

The amendments also provide for disciplinary jurisdiction of the Directors of the Centres and the Coordinators of Units of the Centres on the students of respective centres and units.

Sir Syed Day celebrations could not be planned because of the threatening speeches made by some of the students associated with Dharna.

The Vice Chancellor also held a consultative meeting with post holders and senior students of various halls and all the students have urged that Sir Syed Day be observed in a befitting manner. Provosts have been given permission to organize the function either in Dining Hall or in their central lawns taking care that the resident members and the attached boarders all get food during the dinner. Other categories of guests are not allowed.

Vice Chancellor felt happy that the students have promised proper conduct of this historic celebration of Founder’s Day.

Considering the uneasiness in the context of Dharna, a meeting of the Deans, Principals and Statutory Officers decided to drop the public meeting and reception at Athletics Ground and Sir Syed House. However, it was decided to hold a commemoration meeting at Kennedy Hall. It was also resolved that the students should stay at their respective Halls of residence after Sir Syed Dinner without going out on the roads.

Last year many groups of students and outsiders were indulged in activities contrary to the great traditions of AMU.

Quran Khwani, laying of Chadar and Sir Syed Exhibition will be organized as usual.

AMU Vice Chancellor appealed to all staff, students and well wishers of the University to maintain peace and law and order befitting to the memory of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan.

In the light of on-going dharna in front of Vice Chancellor’s lodge, Vice Chancellor expressed firm commitment that AMU students Union will be restored and urged the students sitting on Dharna and fast unto death to withdraw their agitation so that the University academic and administrative environment is not vitiated.
