KOCHI: Following the stay on Islamic bank in Kerala , Highcourt here on Monday stayed the functioning of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) in Kerala. The court has stayed the admission procedures as well until further notice.

The petition was filed by K Janardhanan, Neethi, Perandoor Road, Kaloor, alleging that the move to establish the campuses was in violation of the provisions of the Aligarh Muslim University Act.

“According to the provisions of the AMU Act, a campus could be established only within 25 kilometres of the university. To change this provision, the Act should be amended. The new campuses across the country are going to be established without amending the Act,” the petitioner said. The court also issued notices to the Central and State governments and AMU.

The respondents have sought time for submitting their explanation in the case. Jihadi pressure group who are pushing for their dream agenda of having this notorious university in Kerala is looking to overcome this legal hurdle by amending the AMU act itself.
