RTI Crusader Dr Tariq Islam Writes to AMU VC Prof P K Abdul Azis

August 26, 2009
The Vice Chancellor
Aligarh Muslim University

Through Proper Channel

Subject: No communication by the Registrar’s Office with regard to any misconduct by me prior to serving of the notice of suspension

Dear Sir,
Everyone is shocked and dismayed with regard to the suspension order served on me vide No. D/DE/865/0270 dated August 26, 2009, alleging gross misconduct on my part. I have been a teacher in this University for nearly 22 years and have been an elected member of the Executive Council and an active member of the AMU Teachers Association. In my entire career I have never been accused of any misconduct and am known to be a polite and courteous person. The shock is even greater since there is no communication from the Registrar’s Office prior to the said notice of suspension with regard to any misconduct on my part.

I have filed 350 applications under Right to Information Act, 2005, since October 2005 seeking information on financial and administrative irregularities. It is a general feeling on the campus that the suspension notice can only be construed as malafides and with intention to harass in retaliation to the discomfiture felt by the University administration due to the applications under Right to Information Act, 2005. It is therefore also felt that since no communication has been made by the Registrar’s Office prior to serving the suspension notice there might be an effort to fabricate a case against me, which would be highly illegal and violative of human rights.

In view of the above it is requested that directives may be issued to immediately withdraw the said suspension notice being baseless and not in accordance with law and established procedure.

With regards,

Yours sincerely

Dr Tariq Islam
Department of Philosophy
Aligarh Muslim University
