Affiliation of 7 colleges: Protest continues

As part of their movement demanding immediate cancellation of seven colleges' affiliation with Dhaka University (DU), a set of protesting students, some of them girls, locked all the academic and administrative buildings on the campus for the third consecutive day yesterday.

It was alleged that Dhaka University Central Student Union (DUCSU) social service secretary Akhter Hossain and the protesting girls were allegedly attacked by some Chhatra League activists later on. "We were standing at the Mal Chattar. Suddenly, a group of Chhatra League activists, led by Rabbi, assistant secretary of the Sergeant Jahurul Haque Hall BCL wing,   attacked us. They also abused the girls who were with us. After that, we had to run away from there," said Akhter.  

Earlier yesterday, the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) held a rally in Dhaka University at noon, demanding a permanent solution to the affiliation crisis. After the rally, they submitted a memorandum to pro vice-chancellor (administration) Prof. Samad.    

After that, a group of BCL activists harassed the protesters, who complained that they were threatened and beaten. The BCl activists also broke the locks on the VC's administration office, much to the dismay of the protesters.             

DUCSU social service secretary Akhter Hossain and vice-president Nurul Haque Nur staged a demonstration with general students in protest of the attack.

However, BCL leaders alleged that Nur and Akhtar had supported and instigated the protesters' movement.

Besides, Akhtar, with support from Nur, had bought the locks by spending DUCSU's, they alleged    

Golam Rabbani, general secretary of the BCL and the DUCSU, termed Akhtar Hossain's conduct in the movement to cancel the affiliation of seven colleges and locking the gates of the university as 'unruly'. "After the VC, Prof. M Akhtaruzzaman, returns from China, the BCL will formally apply for termination of Aktar Hossain's stint as the DUCSU social service secreatry," he said.

“We have already talked to the education minister. She asked us to resolve the matter through discussion by the first week of August. So, the BCL will resolve the problem with the help of DUCSU. If the matter is not resolved by that time, the BCL will start an agitation programme,” he added.

Nur, however, dubbed the BCL's allegations as insults made by a bunch of lunatics. "Their claim is crazy. We do not care about this," he said.

Regarding the movement, Saddam Hossain, AGS of the DUCSU and GS of the BCL DU wing, said: "We can see that a group of people are trying to hijack the movement of DU students. They are denying the students of their fundamental right to take part in exams."

"We want to make it clear that general students will not tolerate any unstable situation. We can stop your malpractice in a few minutes. The Chhatra League has that capability," he added.
