Top Universities discuss how to discipline students

Proctors of JNU, BHU, AMU participate in Webinar on “Discipline in Universities: Issues and Challenges” organized by Jamia

Our Correspondent / New Delhi

Several Central universities on Tuesday discussed ways to enforce discipline in their campus and drew a distinction between students “interested” in academics and those involved in unruly behavior and have vested interests.

Organised by Jamia Millia Islamia, the webinar, “Discipline in Universities,” saw participation by Jamia, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Banaras Hindu University, Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Hamdard.

The webinar was meant to  to discuss and reassess the understanding of changing dynamics of indiscipline and re-strategizing  efforts to maintain the discipline in campuses in the wake of newer challenges in the turbulent times that we are living in.

Prof. Najma Akhtar, Vice Chancellor, JMI was the chief Guest of the Webinar in her address said: “By discipline, the universities never mean illogical rigidity, irrational and lifeless imposition of rules. I believe it is our responsibility to ensure discipline through impression rather than suppression. We have to create an atmosphere of love and respect rather than fear on our campuses. We have to plan comprehensive activities with fundamental objectives of education in mind and ensure the activities in classrooms, libraries, labs and play grounds go well”.

Prof. Waseem Khan, Chief Proctor, JMI and Chairman of the Webinar welcomed the Chief Guest and other dignitaries. He said that discipline is prerequisite for acquisition of knowledge and without discipline, knowledge cannot be acquired.

Prof. Khan also said that the Proctorial Department is the bridge and a mediator between students’ aspirations, university’s goals and government policies. Challenges are increasing everyday due to increase in use of social media, rumour mongering, cyber bullying etc. Universities have to evolve and become more hi-tech.

Prof. Mohd Wasim Ali, Chief Proctor, AMU, Prof. Dhananjay Singh, Chief Proctor, JNU, Prof. O.P. Rai, Chief Proctor, BHU,  Mr. A.P. Siddiqui(IPS), Registrar JMI, Prof. Mehtab Alam, DSW and Former Chief Proctor, JMI, Prof. Masood Alam, Security Advisor and Former Chief Proctor JMI and Prof. Mohd. Sarwar Alam, Chief Proctor, Jamia Hamdard were the speakers in the webinar.

BHU Chief Proctor O P Rai said the “new youth is less exposed to scolding and beating” and, therefore, there was a “problem in how to handle them”.

He said the campus administration should “identify persons who are breaking rules, isolate them and take strict action so that it demotivates others”. He added that students needed to be dealt with “softly.”

Mohd Wasim Ali, Chief Proctor of AMU, advocated “segregation” of certain students. “Criminals, rowdy elements should not have any place in universities or colleges. They have a different mindset and are not interested in studies…It is the prime duty of the university administration to ensure that they are marginalised, segregated and kept out of the campus at any cost.”

Ali, however, expressed concern that AMU could see further unrest when the university reopens as many students who didn’t have a single “blemish” on their record have found themselves charge-sheeted and named in FIRs related to protests against the new citizenship law.

Registrar JMI Mr. A.P. Siddiqui (IPS) gave a very comprehensive and ring side view of discipline in universities. He opined that universities are temples of learning and problems should be resolved within the campuses. He urged universities should nourish young minds and allow them to explore, express, and promote diverse opinions. But unlawful activities and bullying in campuses and hostels should be kept under check.

The webinar ended with a vote of thanks presented by Dr. Mohd Asad Malik, Deputy Proctor and Convenor of the webinar.
