Internet Services Blocked On Protest Against Portrait Removal

Web Desk(May 05, 2018): The internet service has been blocked in the city after the protest erupted against removal of Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s Portrait.

The blockage of internet services was ordered by the local magistrate Chandra Bhushan Singh which will be implemented from 2 pm to late night.

The controversy began when Satish Gautam, a ruling party lawmaker, wrote to AMU vice-chancellor Tariq Mansoor seeking a justification for Jinnah’s portrait, which has been hanging at the university since 1938. Mashkoor Ahmad Usmani, a student leader, said the portrait would not be removed saying it came up as part of a protocol that the AMU students’ union accorded to all great leaders of the then undivided India who had visited the campus.
