Speaking to ANI, Farhat Ali Khan said that no organisation in Pakistan must be having photos of Indian leaders who fought for independence, and the vice versa should be followed in India. "I announce a reward of Rs 1 lakh for the one who burns down the poster".

Meanwhile, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) Vice Chancellor, Professor Tariq Mansoor, along with his wife, Dr Hameeda Tariq, for the second time visited the injured students admitted in the university hospital and enquired about their treatment and health.

Violence broke out at the university campus when outsider barged in and demanded that the portrait of Jinnah be removed from the students' union office. "Kindly gather more details on this and give reasons behind it", Gautam wrote.

However, the move has now led to massive protests in AMU, with students asking why the portrait had become an eye-sore all of a sudden.
