Chulalongkorn University on Monday issued an apology on Facebook for a graduation mural in the middle of the campus that featured an image of former German dictator and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler among a host of comic book superheroes.

"On behalf of the Student Club of the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, Chulalongkorn University, we apologise for the misunderstanding caused by the mural during the graduation ceremony on July 11 and 12, 2013.

"The painting, which has now become a topic of debate, is not intended to refer to anyone particularly," said the university's statement, reported Bangkokpost. 

According to the university, the graduation mural was created by a group of students who were not fully aware of the likely consequences.

Chulalongkorn University has a policy to develop students as good, competent and ethical people, he added.

Reports said the Hitler mural was removed from the campus.
