A group of teachers supporting the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) staged a demonstration on Sunday over the recent rape incident on the Jahangirnagar University campus.
Under the banner of "Bangladesh Nationalist Teachers Forum (BNTF)," the teachers formed a human chain around 12:30 PM at the universitys Shaheed Minar premises.
Addressing the gathering, Professor Borhan Uddin of the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department said, "If the university administration had taken timely steps, this crisis would never have arisen. Now, the university faces a critical situation, leading to the compulsory eviction of non-students from halls. Students demand the publication of room allotment lists for valid students in each hall. The university administration has failed to take action against non-students as they haven been able to identify any."
"Last June, a student of Mir Mosharraf Hossain Hall went on a hunger strike demanding the eviction of illegal occupants," he added.
Professor Md Nurul Islam of the Geography and Environment Department stated, "The JU VC is surrounded by a group of oppressors who restrict his ability to act against them. We urge a proper investigation into the sexual harassment cases."
Professor Kamrul Ahsan, a Philosophy department professor, criticized the JU administration for the recent rape incident, citing criticism from the UGC chairman and Rapid Action Battalion official. This raises questions about the Vice-Chancellors responsibility and the universitys honor.
He also highlighted the Vice-Chancellors failure as the universitys guardian.
