Music festival in Hyderabad Urdu varsity an "insult" to memory of CRPF jawans: Chancellor

Firoz Bakht Ahmed, chancellor, Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), Hyderabad, has sharply criticized the university authorities for bothering little about the sacrifice of 44 CRPF jawans in near Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir but going ahead with celebrating a gala musical evening on February 16 involving 2000 MANUU students, teachers and journalists.
Ahmed, who was appointed MANUU chancellor last year but holds little authority, says in a statement, "Nothing more insensitive and anti-national", adding, this was being in order to appease students to obtain a "positive" report from the UGC Fact Finding Committee. It is probing into allegations of mismanagement and misappropriation in the university.
