Bahria University continues to surprise public with another fiasco

Bahria University has landed itself in yet another controversy by announcing the ban on mixed gatherings at the university cafeteria.

According to the university, students of the opposite gender who are seen eating in the café together will face disciplinary action. The main purpose behind this move seems to be intent of segregating male and female students.

For that, the cafeterias in the university have been divided, allotting the Dean’s Café for female students whereas the Capital Café, Student Café and Daily Grind have been reserved for the male students.

 

Both male and female students have been restricted from using another café aside from the ones assigned to them and an official notification has also been issued to inform the students.

Commander (R) Habib-ur-Rehman – Deputy Director Admin & Coordination issued a notification with the subject line ‘Bifurcation of Cafeterias’ stating:

IT HAS BEEN DIRECTED BY THE COMPETENT AUTHORITY THAT ALL FEMALE STUDENTS ARE TO AVAIL DEAN’S CAFETERIA SITUATED IN QUAID BLOCK AND ALL OTHER FOOD OUTLETS ARE OUT OF BOUND FOR THEM. SIMILARLY, ALL MALE STUDENTS ARE TO AVAIL CAPITAL CAFÉ, STUDENT CAFÉ AND DAILY GRIND AND DEAN’S CAFÉ IS OUT OF BOUND FOR THEM

According to the Express Tribune staff member from the university labeled the notification ‘bizarre’ stating that university students don’t need such limitations since they will be joining the professional world soon.

BY SEGREGATING MALES FROM FEMALES AT UNIVERSITY MEANS THAT WE FAILED TO PREPARE OUR STUDENTS TO BE RESPONSIBLE MEMBERS OF OUR SOCIETY.

However, this is not the first time such a controversial action has been taken by the university. A few months ago, the university had also issued a notification to its students to maintain a 6-inch distance between the opposite gender.

Like the above 6-inch controversy, this one too sparked outrage on social media and a heated debate followed.
