According to a report, scores of student protesters of the university along with 13 police officials were injured in a clash between the victims and the Hindu groups who were protesting outside the university premises on May 2, 2018.

Jinnah's picture was in the campus since 1938. The Vice Chancellor also visited the area where students were protesting and assured them of his "solidarity".

"It had come to the administration's notice that some anti-social elements could vitiate communal harmony by spreading rumours through videos, using internet services", the orders said.

Jaswant Singh, who held the External Affairs and Finance portfolios in the Vajpayee government, was another senior BJP leader who praised Jinnah in a book he wrote in 2009 titled "Jinnah: India-Partition-Independence".

As the tension escalated, the authorities suspended internet service in Aligarh district and imposed Section 144 to tackle the situation.
