In another one of those head-scratching announcements made by educational institutions; this time the Khushal Khan University finds itself at the center of a controversy.
The university administration has passed orders to ban male and female students from sitting together in the central library, choosing instead to maintain strict segregation on the basis of their gender.
When asked about why they have banned mixed gatherings in all areas of the university, the university’s administration believes that doing so will curb an ‘inappropriate environment’ and maintain a culture of silence in their library.
Following this order, the university administration will be earmarking a separate space for females. Anyone found to be violating the rule by being in a mixed gathering will be referred to the Chief Proctor for disciplinary action.
Here is the official notification regarding the ban on male-female gatherings in the Khushal Khan University., Karkak:
A Similar But Positive Move
