Harassment of students

THIS is with reference to the news item ‘PA told: teachers harass UoP girl students’ (April 19). Although there was an immediate denial from the registrar of the University of Peshawar and the Peshawar University Teachers’ Association (PUTA), there is a need to seriously investigate allegations made by a member of the provincial assembly.

A large number of girls do not continue higher education after graduation from local girls’ colleges. It is because parents fear that their daughters might have to face dubious elements in case they allow their girls to get education in university. The government, civil society and media should make efforts to create awareness about the Protection Against Harassment of Women at Workplace Act 2010.

Similarly, the University of Peshawar should also create awareness among students, as well as among teachers. Girl students must know their rights and where to lodge a complaint if they face such a situation.
