Outgoing Vice-Chancellor (VC) of Begum Rokeya University, Rangpur (BRUR) Prof Nazmul Ahsan Kalimullah held an online class for the students of Gender and Development Studies Department in the dead of night.
Prof Kalimullah taught the class of ‘Political Thoughts’ course of the department around 3:00am on Thursday while students of the second semester of 2019-20 academic session took the class, sources said.
It was known that 28 students out of 60 participated in the class which began at 3:00am while only 12 of them were active until the end of the 55-minute class.
Seeking anonymity, a student said, “Sir (Prof Kalimullah) had informed us that he would hold a class of the course. As per his instructions, we take part in the online class.”
“However, many students could not continue the class as it was a late-night class. But I don’t know how many students were there until the end of the class,” said the student.
Holding the late-night class will cause a new controversy, said a number of teachers of the university.
Meanwhile, Prof Kalimullah’s late-ight class went viral on the social media sites.
