In this regard, Professor Mohammad Ismail, Chairman of the Department of Islamic Studies, wrote a letter to the Vice Chancellor.

In this, the lessons of Sanatan Dharma will also be taught to the students of the university.

Umar Peerzada, head of public relations at Aligarh Muslim University, said that for the past 50 years, all classes of religions have been taught at UMA’s theology department. Now taking the same link, postgraduate students will be taught Sanatan Dharma at the Islamic Studies Department of Aligarh Muslim University.
