[Video] VC DOW University reveals 'another side' of the girls hostel video scandal
The students filmed the incident and it was broadcast all over the internet, labeling it as an act of discrimination against Sindhi speaking girls.
Recently, a video showing two female police guards dragging two students out of a hostel building, urging them to leave the sealed premises, went viral.
The students filmed the incident and it was broadcast all over the internet, labeling it as an act of discrimination against Sindhi speaking girls. According to the girls, many Urdu speaking students were living in the hostel at the time too, but no action was taken against them.
Following the hostel video scandal, the Vice-Chancellor of the DOW University of Health Sciences (DUHS), Professor Mohammed Saeed Quraishy, formed an investigation committee to take notice of the matter.
The committee is being led by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kartar Dawani, who has initiated working on the case to conclude the matter within 24 hours. Eyewitness statements have already been recorded, which reveal that the video maker and victims, seen in the video, were former varsity students.
The university authorities claimed that following the Higher Education Commission (HEC)’s order, in the wake of the novel coronavirus, the hostel was vacated.
However, some seniors and graduates from Interior Sindh and other distant areas continued living in the hostel without consent. Regular warnings were issued to these ex-students, but they did not comply. Thus, the authorities had to resort to coercive measures and force them out.
The hostel management put forward arguments to defend their stance:
The issue was video-taped by the students to garner sympathy from the public. However, hostel management is the sole authority aware of the masked truth. Both the students had graduated a few years ago. Though, they continued to inhabit the place without paying hostel residency fees due since 2014.
