When a mosquito bites an infected person and then bites a normal person, he gets infected with malaria. Likewise, exchange of blood from an AIDS patient to a normal person through syringes causes AIDS. Will AIDS pass to a normal person when a mosquito bites an AIDS patient and bites him?

No,  as the AIDS virus will not be able to complete its life cycle in the host body mosquito and hence when a mosquito bites an AIDS patient and then a normal person, he will not get infected.
