Rahman is quoted to have said:

We are not allowed raise questions. Students who raised their voice have been removed, banned from campus. A fear psychosis has been created on campus. In democratic India, an undemocratic Jamia is being created. Our legal fundamental human rights are being suppressed. That is when I decided I should go to court to restore students union on campus.
