Statesman Report
PESHAWAR: Gomal University Administration has dismissed Professor Dr Salahud Din, Dean Faculty of Islamiyat and Arabic Sciences from service.
A notification issued Thursday stated that the decision made by the syndicate in its 101 meeting, Professor Dr Salahud Din has been dismissed from his service from the date of his resignation e.g. February 24, 2020.
He was dismissed from service as punishment after his proven involvement in sexual harassment activities under the provision contained in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Universities Act 2012, reports APP.
The other day, Vice Chancellor Gomal University Prof Dr Iftikhar Ahmed imposed ban on teachers, officers and other employees' associations or groups in the university to ensure conducive environment for learning.
The vice chancellor issuing a notification in this regard said that officers, teachers and other employees were not permitted to get involved in any kind of grouping or association.
He added that if students of the university were not allowed to take part in organizations, how employees of the university could be allowed to get involved in grouping or take part in any kind of association, the vice chancellor questioned.
He said strict disciplinary action would be taken under the university's relevant laws if any officer, teacher, student or any employee of the university was found involved in such grouping or associations.
He was of the view that these groupings and organizations had caused colossal damage to the university and its students, depriving the region of quality education.
"Come what may, I will continue taking tough decisions for bringing the university at par with other prestigious universities of the country,” the VC observed.
