Chancellor, dubbed Modi choice, boycotts Hyderabad Urdu varsity convention, says it's a den of corruption

Recently-appointed chancellor, Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), Hyderabad, Firoz Bakht Ahmed, on the eve of the university’s 7th Convention, in a letter to the registrar said he was boycotting the function, because MANUU has turned into “a den of corruption and unabated cases of sexual abuse of girl student.”
Stating that he would never wish to be clubbed with the “desecrators and destroyers of the sacred institution”, Ahmed, who is grand nephew of Maulana Azad, said: “I, Firoz Bakht Ahmed, Chancellor, Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), have boycotted the Convention 2018 on account of umpteen unresolved cases/ controversies of heinous and horrendous injustice.”
The letter cited instances of sexual abuse of girl students, irregularities in appointments, embezzlement of funds in all sorts of expenditures, as some of the reasons for the boycott.
According to Ahmed, there exists an “ambience of fear psychosis and fascism, making people phobic” and “annihilation of all norms and traditions by prohibiting the entry of the chancellor to be in the campus for reforms, besides threats of non-cooperation in all walks of the university life.”
The letter continues, “The university has become a fiefdom of the V-C and his cronies. These people are eating into the entrails of this institution of pristine glory in the name of Bharat Ratna, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, India’s first Minister of Education.” 
Notably, Ahmed has been dubbed an "RSS  and Modi choice" by his opponents.
