Sonia assures AMU on autonomy

Congress president Sonia Gandhi said she would do her best to ensure that Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) retains autonomy, touching upon the legal wrangle over its minority status. 
    “I know that issue of minority status of AMU is pending in Supreme Court. I want to assure you that I would do my best to ensure autonomy and historical character of this eminent university,” Sonia Gandhi said via audio conferencing after she had to call off her visit to AMU’s 60th convocation function because of inclement weather on Saturday. 
    The statement is seen as important in view of the legal tussle that has often led to
comments about Congress’s stance on the sensitive issue of AMU’s status. 
    Sonia said AMU has established its identity through secular and nationalist education and followed the vision of its founders by staying on the path of modern education. The Congress chief noted that Indian ethos were deeply entwined, adding that Islam has become an inseparable part of India.
