Thank you for your rejoinder which will be placed soon under the same report you refer to. We have nothing against you in person. In fact, I never met you and I am not in contact with any person or group of Aligarh or elsewhere in this context although over the years people from AMU have consistently given bad opinion about you including some who now stand with you in photographs. I started observing you when you joined the coterie usurping Jamia Urdu, which, I think, does not consist of rightful and honest people. I was part of the group consisting of Syed Shahabuddin, Sayyid Hamid and others who spoke against the usurpation of Jamia Urdu by the said coterie. You have now left Jamia Urdu and I am not aware of, or even bothered to know, the reason. I am for transparency and cleanliness in politics and public life and this alone is the reason why we wrote about you in the past and recently. Please rest assured I have nothing against you in person.
Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan
