Faisalabad University’s men to give women scarves instead of flowers on February 14

January 12, 2019

The Faisalabad Agriculture University will not be allowing its students to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The students have been told to observe Sister day on February 14 instead, SAMAA TV reported Saturday.

Faisalabad Agriculture University Vice Chancellor Dr Zafar Iqbal said the male students will give burqas and scarves to the female students.

The VC proudly took credit for the idea and requested "wealthy" people to donate money to buy the gowns and scarves.

Dr Iqbal said that the students of his university liked his idea, adding that as a teacher it was his responsibility to revive the Islamic culture.

    Who is he to force his idea of Islam on others. What if the girl doesn’t wanna wear a burqa. This is harrassment and this professor should be told to do what he’s paid for! saying no to Vday is one thing but ridiculing Islam like this is another.

    Reading the news and reading the comments, one wonders
    – first on the audacity of men to try to tell women what to do – (How come there are no eye bands for men so that they can stop leering at women)
    – secondly on the strangeness of the culture that does want procreation at some stage but does not allow for any healthy romantic relationships between the opposite genders at any stage.

    Vice chancellor need special treatment..chittar indeed..
    What he is doing for research, better teaching standards etc?

    No need to give scarves or burqas to female students. We need to educate our male students to respect the female students and let them focus on their main goal which is education and if Vice Chancellor want to do something for female students then, please provide best environment and resources to female students. To wear a scarf or burqa has nothing to do with the university administration and their only job is to provide good well-trained teachers, best information technology facilities, the best research and development environment and resources, and peaceful learning environment.

    I don’t think VC is right in doing this. No one can force niqab or burqa on anyone.

    A boyfriend could give scarf to his girlfriend. He’s not saying doing have girlfriends. All he is saying is do it behind the burqa and scarf…. That’s it.
    What an idiot, really.

    The V. C. seems to be a man on the surface only. These issues do not fall in his or the administration’s domain.
    A girl or a boy having attained the age of 18 is subject to laws of Pakistan and needs no moralising from the V. C.
    The teachers and students may have a debate on all issues but the decision/freedom to choose lies with the adult.
    The V. C. needs to concentrate on education and research.
