BHU gender based bias:Another case adds to the saga

Restrictions on Wi-fi,Non veg only for females

Lok Sabha discussed the alleged matter of restrictions in one of the leading universities in the nation-Banaras Hindu University.
It is to be noted here that the allegations were that the female students were facing certain restrictions in one of the central universities of the nation.
According to published reports, female students from the university alleged that they were not allowed access to free Wi-Fi in their rooms while there was no such restriction for male students.
The students also said they were not allowed to eat non-vegetarian food in the campus, make telephone calls after 10 p.m. and wear shorts to the mess.
Women were also not allowed to take part in protests, demonstrations or even political debates.

However,the government answered the Lok Sabha by stating that there were “no bans in BHU”
HRD minister,Mr. Prakash Javedkar himself asserted that there were no restrictions put on the female students.
“I have collected information from the BHU. There are no restrictions or discrimination there,” Javadekar informed the Lok Sabha in response to a supplementary question during the Question Hour.

Replying to the other questions raised by the Lok Sabha members,Javedkar agreed with the fact that Indian Educational institutions do not rank highly on the global scenario which is a cause of worry

“There is scope for improving the ranking internationally,” he said and added there is a possibility that the situation will improve as international faculties are coming to the Indian institutions.

Telling about the Modi government’s policies regarding education and to set some standards for evaluating the quality of eduction in the nation ,the minister stated that the government has launched the National Institutional Ranking Framework on September 29, 2015.

The NIRF ranks the institutions using data on five broad parameters: teaching learning resources, research and professional practice, outreach and inclusivity, graduation outcomes and perception, he said.
What is the true picture will soon be revealed!!
