Now BHU To Tell Students That Western Culture Is A Bad Thing

Published on 15 February, 2016 at 3:44 pm By

The prestigious Banaras Hindu University (BHU) will have a ‘special orientation’ campaign from next month to spread awareness about ‘ill-effects of western culture’ amongst students.

For the campaign, the university will constitute teams of professors, students and doctors who will counsel the students on the differences between good and bad culture.

The teams will go to hostels, classes and hang-out places of students and will give lectures on ‘moral values and ethics’.

They will also counsel boys against whom complaints of eve-teasing have been reported and will ask them how would they feel if such things are done with girls in their families.

As a part of its ongoing centennial celebrations, BHU Vice Chancellor G.C. Tripathi recently said that occasions like Valentine’s Day, which is part of western culture, should not be celebrated on the campus.

BHU’s Public Relations Officer Rajesh Singh said:

“The campaign’s objective is to make students aware of what is right and what is wrong.”

Students would be urged to ‘remain alert’ about the ill-effects of the western culture such as ‘live-in relationships’ and ‘misuse of Internet’.

“A skill development centre has also been established where students will be taught about Yoga, meditation and personality development,” said Singh.

The BHU, it seems, is on a drive to spread nationalistic and cultural values among its students.

Last month, BHU sacked Sandeep Pandey, who is a social activist and Magsaysay awardee, on charges of being a ‘Naxalite’.

Pandey, who was a Visiting Faculty in the Department of Chemical Engineering of the IIT-BHU, says the termination order was preceded by a discussion with the top administration.

BHU VC Tripathi also strongly condemned the on-going JNU row over an event against the hanging of Afzal Guru that has thrown open a nationwide debate over what constitutes ‘seditious activities’ and ‘nationalism’.

Reiterating the “cannot be tolerated” statements of HRD Minister Smriti Irani and Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Tripathi said that “prompt action must be taken against the students involved in anti-national event at the JNU campus”.
