Jamia University supporting terror?

The Jamia Millia Islamia University would provide legal aid to two suspended students who have been arrested by Delhi Police for being allegedly involved in the serial blasts in the capital.

Varsity spokesperson Rakshanda Jaleel "Legal aid would be provided till they are not found guilty,"

The executive committee of Jamia teacher’s association (JTA) also announced their commitment to provide financial support to the two students of the university, who were arrested for their alleged involvement in terror activities. The JTA praised the university’s move to provide legal assistance to the two students. They further demanded from the university that no disciplinary action should be initiated against the students unless they are proven guilty by the court of law.

For accused who cannot afford, Legal aid is provided in our country. The university need not interfere. With this act, the university which runs on government funds have basically shown lack of faith in the government. HR Minister by suppiorting this move is working against his own government and also advocating mistrust of his own government.
