JNU reacts to report on sexual harassment cases

New Delhi: The Delhi Commission for Women has released a reported report on 26 November which stated that the highest number of sexual harassment cases have been reported from Jawaharlal Nehru University.

JNU reacted to this report and attributed it to more sensitization in the varsity. Students are more aware and not afraid to report any kind of wrong behavior.

The university credited the committee for the increased sensitization. JNU has a committee named ‘Gender Sensitization Committee against Sexual Harassment (GSCASH)’ which is known for working in a fair, neutral and confidential manner.

A member of the GSCASH told The Hindu that the highest number of reported cases shows the extent of sensitization and response from the university. The report also has said that all the 51 cases were addressed.

The Delhi University’s reluctance to provide data has raised quite a few eyebrows as the varsity with lesser restrictions is more prone to untoward incidents.

In JNU, the sensitization has worked because students expressed solidarity with it. Moreover, a bulk on JNU students is mature as they are from the post-graduate courses. Other colleges and varsities mostly have undergraduate students.

While Delhi has been branded as unsafe for women but one has to admit that the perception about its universities has been good. Parents do not generally stop their children from going to Delhi for the purpose of education.

Though there are justifications behind JNU’s reaction to the report, but one expects that the number of cases on sexual harassment should go down considerably for proper implementation of the sensitization program.
