Speaking to ANI, Farhat Ali Khan said that no organisation in Pakistan must be having photos of Indian leaders who fought for independence, and the vice versa should be followed in India.

On the ongoing Jinnah portrait row, Olympic bronze medallist wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt had said that it is embarrassing to fight for someone who is responsible for dividing the country.

"Students were on an indefinite protest at the Bab-e-Syed gate of the university, and were raising the slogan - Bhagwa Rang aur Aatank se Azadi".

Violence broke out at the university yesterday after the right-wing protestors barged into the varsity demandingthe removal of Jinnah's portrait displayed on the University campus. "For the next fortnight, Jinnah will be brought back from the grave and real issues will be sidelined", he said.

The local district magistrate ordered the suspension of internet services in Aligarh from 2 PM on May 4.

"We the Alumni of Bahrain once again demand stern action against the perpetrators/conspirators who are hell bent on vitiating the atmosphere of peace and harmony that otherwise normally prevails in the AMU campus", he said. Tariq Mansoor visited the students, who were injured after police restored lathi charge on Wednesday.

He also reminded the AMU students that their university has the reputation of being one of leading academic institutions in the country and they should be aware of the hopes and expectations that the nation holds for them. Due to these clashes, Section 144 has been imposed in Aligarh and internet services have also been suspended in the north Indian city.

Meanwhile, the row seems to have spread to other places as well, with students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and the Delhi University (DU) also gathering outside the Uttar Pradesh Bhawan in Delhi in protest.
