Azamgarh college mulling legal action on Modi ad
Azamgarh: Taking exception to use of
photographs of its students in an advertisement released by
Narendra Modi government, the reputed Shibli College here
Saturday said it is mulling legal action in the case.
"The families of the burqa clad girls shown in the
picture used in the advertisement as well as the college
management are being consulted in order to see what legal
action we can take in this regard," the college principal,
Iftekaar Ahmed, said here.
The advertisement projecting how Muslims are better
off in Gujarat has a photograph showing girl students working
on computers "but the reality is that it belongs to the
college and has been downloaded from a website on which it had
been put in 2008," Ahmed said.
The principal said that there is "huge resentment" not
just among the families of the girls but also among college
students as "it is distortion of facts and nobody is aware as
to how the picture found its way in the advertisement".
The advertisement was published in newspapers in Patna
ahead of the BJP`s national executive meeting.
