AMU revokes suspension order against faculty member


Aligarh, Jan 18 (PTI) Aligarh Muslim University vice-chancellor P K Abdul Aziz today "revoked the suspension order pending finalisation of proceedings" against senior faculty member and RTI activist Tariq Islam, an official notification here said.

Islam, a reader in the department of philosophy was placed under suspension in August last year on charges of "tampering his academic record" while applying for the job at the varsity nearly 25 years ago.

The suspension had led to a furore in the varsity campus with AMU teachers association launching an agitation against the step. The association alleged that Islam had been "suspended primarily because of his role as an RTI activist at the campus".

The vice chancellor had ordered an enquiry into the matter in November and the enquiry committee had submitted its report on December 21 last year.
