KMC students want action against accused professor
Peshawar, Dec 21: The students of Khyber Medical College (KMC) and other institutions staged a protest rally outside the Convocation Hall of the University of Peshawar and demanded Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor to take stern action against the professor who allegedly thrashed a medical student for observing purdah.

The students, under the aegis of Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba, gathered outside the Convocation Hall and chanted slogans against the professor concerned. The governor, after the convocation, met the protesting students and assured them that action would be taken against the professor, if found guilty.

The governor directed vice-chancellor Khyber Medical University Prof Dr Hafizullah and Principal KMC Dr Ejaz Hassan Khan to expedite the process of inquiry into the matter and submit him report at the earliest.

Last week Prof Dr Rahim Bangash of KMC allegedlythrashed a first year student Misbah Syed of the institution after an exchange of arguments with her on purdah. The incident triggered a series of protests against the professor prompting the college management to constitute an inquiry committee.

The committee is still in process to investigate the matter. A member of the committee said that the inquiry was still on and they have also invited some seven prominent religious scholars for their input from Islamic point of view. "These scholars have also been regularly attending the meetings of the committee," he informed. He said that they have done most of their job and would soon submit final report to the quarters concerned.
