Students at Aligarh Muslim University held a protest demanding the arrest of religious leader Narsinghanand Saraswati on Sunday. The students allege that his remarks against the Prophet were wrong and he should be arrested.
The demonstrators marching at the university gate are demanding immediate arrest of Narsinghanand. Not only this, students handed over a memorandum to the local authorities alleging a bid to promote disharmony between different religious groups and thereby endangering the peace of the land. The memorandum distributed stated that the Prophet had strongly prohibited Muslims from hurting the religious sentiments of others.
The notice addressed to President Ram Nath Kovind also demanded a special stringent law to punish those trying to promote ill-will and hatred among religious groups. The students appeal for peace and harmony among all but such statements and remarks made by profound religious leaders can lead to worse conditions. Later, student leader Farhan Zubairi urged the Centre to take punitive action against Narsinghanand.
