Women in PoK protest against exploitative university
Bagh, PoK, April 23, 2019:- The Women University of Bagh in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir has been brought to a standstill as students are protesting against its administration for monetarily exploiting them at the pretext of providing them higher education while keeping them bereft of even fundamental needs for the degree. They shouted anti-university and anti-government slogans and sought for an immediate action into their grievances. They accused the administration of enrolling them despite having an acute shortage of faculty. The situation is so grave that there are only one- two teachers assigned for the entire syllabus. In spite of all this, the students had come to terms with the gross injustice being meted out to them and adjusted with the limited faculty. However, the administration cited different reasons and got rid of them. Students say they won’t budge from their position until the faculty is brought back.
