Friday 10 February
Claiming that her complaints against alleged harassment for wearing jeans and T-shirt fell on deaf ears at the Aligarh Muslim University, a girl student of the university has approached the National Human Rights Commission for justice. Farah Aziz Khanum, who was allegedly harassed by students of the university, met the Commission joint registrar with a plea for personal security and a directive to the University to take proper measures to prevent such incidents in the future. She claimed that on February 2, two motor-cycle borne students had reportedly taken off a shawl she was wearing as a dupatta and sped away and the University Vice-Chancellor Naseem Ahmad had ignored her compliant and a demand for a grievance redressal cell at the varsity.

Wednesday 4 January
In a major blow to YSR government's promise to give 5 percent reservations to Muslims in government jobs, the Supreme Court declined to stay the Andhra Pradesh High Court judgement quashing an ordinance providing the jobs reservations and ordered a status quo while referring the issue to a Constitution Bench. A day later, the Allahabad High Court also rejected the union government's plea for restoring the minority status of the Aligarh Muslim University and scrapping 50 per cent reservation for Muslim students. Upholding the single Bench judgement of 4th October 2005 declaring that AMU was not a minority institution and 50 reservation for Muslims was illegal, a two-member bench ruled that according the university the status of a minority institution was "ultra vires to the Constitution". The court also said that admissions for the academic session of 2006-2007 "will be free to all" but clarified that those students, who have been given admission earlier under the quota system and are studying in the university, will continue to do so.
