A bizarre notice issued by a Pakistan university in Charsadda in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, which banned the movement of boys and girls in the varsity's campus.
The circular was circulated by the Assistant Chief Proctor Farmanullah on September 23, 2019, in the Bacha Khan University. The varsity took the step to maintain the decorum and discipline in the campus.
University especially focussed on the term ‘coupling’ and also termed the roaming of male, female students together as unethical/ un-Islamic.
Bacha Khan University also said that if any students are found anywhere in the campus coupling then strict action will be taken against them and also a fine will be imposed.
The notice reads, “It is hereby notified for the information of all students that the unethical activities around the university are in a surge, undue/un-Islamic/uncultural relationships are strongly discouraged. Let the students be very clear that coupling of male and female students is not allowed, if students are found anywhere in the campus coupling, strict disciplinary action would be taken against them. The parents of the students would be called into the university and fine will also be imposed.
Therefore, to avoid any untoward situations, no male and female student’s correspondence should occur.”
