In a move that could easily be termed controversial and bold, activists of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) have written a letter to Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) vice chancellor Tariq Mansoor seeking permission to allow to organise ‘shakha’ (camps) inside the varsity campus.
The letter has been written by the RSS activist Mohammad Ameer Rashid and it states that there is a misconception among the students of the minority community about the right-wing outfit.
“There is a dire need for the students to know the truth about the RSS. Many students are giving baseless statements against the organisation and spreading misinformation,” Rashid said in the letter.
He said that RSS is dedicated towards the cause of the nation and said that it doesn’t discriminate among people on the basis of religious beliefs.
Rashid said that hence this is all the more crucial that students get apprised about the real ideology of the RSS.
Rashid adds that this can be easily done with camps being organized within the university premises.
However, the AMU Students Union President Mashkoor Ahmed has opposed the idea and said that they will not allow the AMU to be converted into a political hub.
