FAISALABAD: In a rare incident, the University of Agriculture of Faislabad expelled one of its gold medalist students who criticized a musical event organized by the university in his Facebook post.  

Syed Kashan Haider Gilani, a PhD student, received university notice stating that he is being expelled for “defaming the university image” through an act of “indiscipline and misconduct.”

The student was expelled for “defaming university image on programs arranged in connection with Kisan Mela 2015, spreading wrong information, misleading student community on social media, showing disrespect to university and its administration, initiating an undesirable/unwanted debate about programs on social media, damaging repute and bringing bad name to university,” according to a notice issued to him.


Last week, the student was directed to present his written and verbal explanation before a disciplinary committee that decided about Gilani’s fate.


Following his expulsion, the university has banned Gilani’s entry and directed him to vacate hostel, according to our correspondent.

Talking to Samaa, Kashan said that the university terminated him with immediate effect without issuing him any warning. He expressed hope that the chief minister and courts would provide him justice.

Meanwhile, ruling PML-N leader Talal Chaudhry backing the university action said that the academic institution took disciplinary action against the student.

“There is a need to understand the situation. There are 24,000 students in the university and none of them complaint about the event,” Talal said in support of the university.

The PML-N, however, added that he would personally ask vice chancellor of the university to review his decision.

Spokesman of Faisalabad’s University of Agriculture said that the student would be given a right to appeal, adding that decision about the student’s future would be taken on merit. –Samaa
