The Real Reason Why FAST University Expelled Its Students

There’s more to this story than meets the eye.

University

Turns out that yesterday’s case about FAST University Lahore expelling its students was about more than some ‘harmless’ memes. According to well-placed sources, the expelled students were found guilty of making sexually suggestive memes about a female faculty member.

Based on the wildly inappropriate nature of these images, FAST University Lahore has demanded an apology and threatened action against students.

In any case, abuse and harassment is not OK. The students have a lot to answer for.

Netizens also support action against those elements who created such explicit memes, and called for the content to be removed.

Not the first time

If this incident gives you a sense of deja vu, here’s why.

A few months ago, there was a similar group on Facebook by students belonging to the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). The group regularly posted sexist memes that targeted the female members of the elite university.

However, Netizens also spilled the tea on how FAST Lahore doesn’t have a great track record for dealing with harassment.

Even former staff members posted their accounts being coerced by the administration.

Journalist Zarrar Khuhro had this to say:

However, there is a caveat here that people have pointed out. The onus is on the FAST admin to ensure that justice is done, and not used to target people who are not responsible for the controversy in the first place.

Some people even alleged that those being reprimanded for the memes and those that created the memes are two sets of people.

It is hoped that students should learn that there are red lines that should not be crossed. Similarly, the FAST university administration should ensure that only the guilty party is charged and no one else.
