‘King had donated land for university’


Amid a row over Pakistan founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s portrait on Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) campus, Haryana Finance Minister Captain Abhimanyu on Sunday demanded the university be named after ‘Jat king Mahendra Pratap Singh’.
“I demand AMU should be named after Raja Mahendra Pratap Singh,” the Minister said while addressing a gathering at the ground-breaking ceremony of a Jat dharamsala in Rewari.
He claimed the king had “donated” the land for the university. “His contribution in the field of education cannot be forgotten,” the Minister said.
Slams Jinnah
“Jinnah was responsible for destroying the integrity of the nation. His portrait is displayed in the varsity but till today no picture of Raja Mahendra Pratap has been installed there,” Capt. Abhimanyu added.
