DU sends Prof. Naadir on forced leave

Staff Reporter:

Dhaka University administration on Monday sent Prof. Naadir Junaid of the Mass Communication and Journalism (MCJ) department to three months of forced leave in light of allegations of a sexual harass-ment complaint filed by a female student.
The department’s chairperson Abul Mansur Ahmed read out the university’s official decision to the stu-dents in the department’s corridor around 4:30 pm.
“In the interest of maintaining the smooth operation of the university’s educational activities, you are required to take a leave for three months starting from February 12, abstaining from all academic and administrative responsibilities,” he announced in the letter in front of the students.
“Furthermore, the matter will be presented in the next syndicate meeting for a thorough investigation into the allegations raised against you. Any necessary actions will be taken in accordance with the deci-sions made by the syndicate,” he added.
The students of the department started gathering in the department’s corridor from 10 am this morning for the second day to press home their three points of demand following yesterday’s decision to boycott all academic activities indefinitely.
Around 2:15 pm, they carried out a protest rally that marched to the Vice Chancellor’s office where they went to submit their memorandum.
As the VC was not present in the office then, they marched to the VC’s residence. There, the depart-ment’s chairperson Abul Mansur Ahmed requested them to wait till 4 pm as he said the VC was in a meeting with foreign delegates.
Abul Mansur Ahmed said, “Wait till 4 pm, VC sir confirmed he will give a written final decision about your demands.”
Before heading to meet the VC, as part of their protest, the students locked and sealed the professor’s office and the department’s classrooms.
Earlier, a student of Dhaka University filed a written complaint alleging sexual harassment and pro-longed psychological abuse against Prof Naadir Junaid of the university’s Mass Communication and Journalism Department on Saturday morning.
