In protest against the portrait of at (AMU), a group of (BHU) students associated with burnt Jinnah's effigy at the BHU main gate on Friday. "It is unfortunate that certain people are standing by the side of a person who was responsible for the division of this country".

Venezuela Iran issues led to highest rise in oil prices since 2014
Iran also doesn't support higher oil prices, with its oil ministers saying they wanted reasonable oil prices, well below $70. Not coincidentally, oil production from the "OPEC 14" is down by approximately 750,000 barrels per day over this period.

The controversy over the portrait of Mohammed Ali Jinnah in AMU took a violent turn on May 2 as Hindu Yuva Vahini supporters staged a protest at the varsity campus.

Pradip Ratnam, PWD superintending engineer in Khair, said the state government had ordered that pictures of Modi and chief minister Yogi Adityanath be hung in the guesthouse while seeking an explanation why Sir Syed's portrait had been removed. It resulted into retaliation from the AMU students. The police reportedly had to lob tear gas shells to disperse the agitators.

According to the police, after the AMU campus violence, the duo had allegedly posted objectionable material on social media which had led to temporary suspension of internet service in the city.

A university spokesperson said the examinations of the 2017-18 session will now commence from May 12, with no further postponements.

The alumni of the north India-based prestigious Aligarh Muslim University have expressed their deep anguish over recent developments in the premises of their premier institution of higher learning.
