Early Times Report
Jammu, May 19: The authorities of Jammu University have reportedly rusticated five students who had opposed the 'disrespect of national anthem' during an Inter-University sports event.
Talking to Early Times, the aggrieved students claimed that the administration is playing foul by making a pretext of shortage of attendance.
"The fact of the matter is that the rusticated students, including four boys and a girl, were quite vocal in opposing the disrespect shown to national anthem by the students of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agriculture, Science and Technology (SKUAST) Kashmir," said the students, adding that the JU administration could not justify their 'criminal' silence over the episode.
Expressing shock over the decision of the university administration, the students asked, "How it is possible that only five students from the entire university fall short of attendance?"
"We protested on April 9 against the disrespect shown to national anthem, and on April 11, our records including attendance registers got scrutinised. The university is deliberately playing with the career of the students only to cover its incompetence in justifying the anti-national activity."
The students said if they were indeed short of attendance, how were they allowed to appear in the minors taken by th
Vendetta?
We can term this decision as dictatorial, as before taking any action the students were supposed to be intimated, but here the university did everything on their own, which makes it evident that the university has taken revenge from students for seeking justification for not taking any action against students of SKUAST-K for disrespecting national anthem.
university based on their attendance?
"I guess this is for the first time that the university has rusticated students on the basis of shortage of attendance. We are also unable to comprehend how it is possible that only five students from the university that too from a single department fell short of attendance," the aggrieved students lamented.
They said that taking such a huge decision without intimating students' amounts to conspiracy on the part of university.
"We can term this decision as dictatorial, as before taking any action the students were supposed to be intimated, but here the university did everything on their own, which makes it evident that the university has taken revenge from students for seeking justification for not taking any action against students of SKUAST-K for disrespecting national anthem," the students said.
Meanwhile, a senior professor from JU said this is an unfortunate incident.
"Without considering the career of the students, the university administration has passed Tagulaqi Farman, which is worth condemnation," said the professor, adding that there is proper procedure with regard to fulfil attendance shortage of the students.
"The first priority of the university should have been to see options for compensating shortage to save students' time and career," she said.
