Female students from Swabi staged a protest against fee hike, better facilities, the reappointment of a teacher outside Women University on Wednesday. However, to stop them from protesting, university officials not only charged at them but also removed their scarves and filmed them.
Vice-chancellor’s personal secretary can be seen threatening the students to call off the protest or face the consequences. He even threatens a female student to leave, or he will tell her father.
The students were protesting against the ‘illegal’ removal of one of the male teachers. The teacher was removed pre-maturely before his three-year contract ended. He was replaced by a female teacher. The protesting students said that if the gender of the faculty is an issue for the administration, then the chancellor should be removed as well.
The students further said that the university has been charging very high semester fees, which needs to be reduced by at least 50%. The fee currently is Rs. 30,000. They also complain against hostels and libraries demanding proper facilities for students on the campus.
