2 RU teachers punished

The authorities of Rajshahi University (RU) punished two teachers of Fine Arts faculty for their alleged involvement with making and selecting the ‘communal’ multiple choice questions in the admission test for the Fine Arts faculty. Syndicate sources said Prof Mustafizur Rahman has also been removed from the post of faculty dean and Zillur Rahman's promotion as associate professor will be effective after five years.The two teachers are Professor M Mustafizur Rahman, dean of Fine Arts faculty also the convener of the question making committee and Zillur Rahman Titon, an assistant professor of printmaking and oriental art department, also a member of question making committee. The authority suspended the two teachers for 10 years from taking participation into any examination process of the university.  The decision was taken at 474th syndicate meeting of the university on Wednesday night.

Earlier on October 28, RU authority formed a four-member probe committee to investigate the matter. And the committee was asked to submit report by 15 days from the day.

Pro-Vice Chancellor Prof Anand Kumar Saha headed the committee with Prof M Shahidullah of English, Abu Bakar Md Ismail of applied physics and electronic engineering, and Prof M Nazrul Islam of chemistry department as its members.

The admission aspirants at RU’s Fine Arts faculty on October 25 were asked to answer the multiple choice questions: ‘What is the name of the greatest book in the world? A) The Holy Quran, B) The Holy Bible, C) The Holy Injil and D) Gita.’

The other question was "When did the Myanmar army and the Buddhists launch an armed attack on the Rohingya Muslims?"

These particular questions later triggered an outrage on the campus and criticisms in social media.
