SAVAR, July 03, 2022 (BSS) - Teachers of the Jahangirnagar University (JU) today staged a demonstration on the campus protesting the humiliation of Principal Swapan Kumar Biswas in Narail and killing of college teacher Utpal Kumar Sarker at Savar.
Under the banner of Jahangirnagar University Teachers' Association (JUTA), they formed a human chain on the central Shaheed Minar premises of the university about 11.30 am.
Addressing the program, JUTA President Professor Laek Sazzad Andallah said, "Teacher harassment and assaults are constantly happening in the country. Many teenaged gangs being formed in different places. If the teacher or the administration speaks against them, then they attack the teacher and the administration. I don't want to call a student who insults or kills a teacher. They are misguided."
‘The relevant ministry of the government has to find out the reason behind what is happening. If we want to find a solution to the incident, we have to find the source. We must refrain from making vulgar remarks about teachers through social media,' he added.
JUTA leaders demanded a quick response to the administration to provide exemplary punishment for those who are involved in such heinous and illegal activities.
Conducted by JUTA General Secretary Professor Dr. Motaher Hossain, dean of Business Studies faculty Nilanjan Kumar Saha, Prof Shamsul Alam Selim of Government and Politics Department, Prof Tapan Kumar Saha of Chemistry Department, Prof Monowar Hossain of Zoology Department, Prof Jamal Uddin of Environmental Sciences Department, Prof Mahmudul Hasan Sumon of the Anthropology Department, Prof Mahtab Uddin Ahmed of Mathematics Department and Prof Fahmida Akhter of Drama and Dramatics Department also spoke at the programme, among others.
