The tradition of not serving meals during Ramazan has been in place since 1920. The university only provided meals called “Shehari” and “Iftaar” to students during Ramazan.

During the holy month, Muslims eat meals at dawn and dusk, skipping water and food during the day. Hence, Hindu and non-Muslim students were also not provided lunch.



Several students protested against this on social media and wrote to Human Rights Commission. Following the instruction from the commission, the university decided to serve lunch during Ramazan as well.

Mohammed Aamir, President of Muslim Youth Association, had also complained to several authorities. According to Aamir, AMU is not a minority-run institution but has been long functioning as one. The university has also agreed to provide the lunch that students choose and not the traditional food that is served during Ramazan.
