Harassing Teacher

NU expels student

The National University (NU) expelled a student from Khulna on Thursday in relation to humiliating a teacher of Mirzapur United Degree College in Narail and ‘inciting religious tensions’.

The student, Rahmatullah, is a fourth-year student of Islamic History and Culture at Khulna Government Brajalal College.

A notice has also been sent to Akhtar Hossain, a teacher at the college’s Department of Political Science, to explain the ‘negative role’ he played. An explanation has also been demanded from its board of directors for their ‘negligence’ in dealing with the situation properly.

The National University Syndicate, led by Vice Chancellor Mashiur Rahman, made the decision on the basis of an investigation report at a meeting on Wednesday night.

The incident at the Mirzapur United Degree College in Narail took place when a student posted a photo of controversial BJP figure Nupur Sharma, who recently made headlines in India for incendiary comments on Islam’s prophet.
