Class 12 Student Booked for Alleged Derogatory Remarks Against Prophet Muhammad

 Aligarh: A class 12 student of an AMU-run college here was booked for allegedly making derogatory remarks against Prophet Muhammad, officials said on Thursday, December 14.

The action was taken after a classmate of the accused lodged a complaint against him with the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) authorities on Tuesday, a senior varsity official said, adding both the students were Muslims.

The complainant was having a discussion with some students in his hostel room when the accused joined them and allegedly started insulting the Prophet. He turned aggressive when asked to stop, according to officials.

AMU Proctor Mohammad Waseem told PTI that a case under sections 295 A (outrage religious feelings), 504 (provoke breach of peace), and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code was registered against the accused at the Civil Lines Police Station.
