Farzana Jamali Video Statement
According to Farzana, she is not the only one who is facing harassment at Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University, there are other girls who have faced harassment from the same teacher, Amir Khattak.
There must be hundreds and thousands of girl student facing harassment from their professors and teachers every day. When the teachers, professors and the heads are incompetent and instead of merit the are bestowed the high positions on personal references, this is the consequence, they become animals. The most respected profession in the world becomes loathsome.
Dreams in the innocent eyes are shattered by our beloved and most respected teachers. Nawabshah city which is now called Shaheed Benazirabad and the University which is called Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University, Bibi Shaheed who believed in women empowerment, daughters there are crying.
Hopefully the PPP Government will also take strong action against the VC – Arshad Saleem Arain and Amir Khattak, Head of Department at Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University’s English Department. Both should be fired and never be allowed to serve any educational institute anywhere in the country.
Till the case is resolved please suspend both accused.
