University teachers are released: politics free campus should be the target December 10, 2007

4 Rajshahi University teachers who were convicted for 2 years in a court have been released from jail on being pardoned by the President of Bangladesh.

The gesture would be welcomed by the academicians, students and public in general. At the same time they will expect that other teachers who are behind the bar will be treated liberally and be released soon.

But that shouldn’t be the end of the story.

What any conscious people will expect that the university campus will be free from politics and academic exercise would be the prime objective of the students and teachers of the campus.

Nobody would contradict the need of exercise of free thinking but one must not confuse the free thinking with the partisan politics.

We hope that the performance of the students and the teachers will be judged on their merit and academic record, not on the party affiliation.

And we hope to see our universities in the ranking of the best universities of the region.
