Team CVC is pained to read that the suspension order of Prof. Chandra Shekhar “was recovered by Police from the Pocket in mortuary”. Furthermore we fail to understand as to why this case is not rarest of rare cases. “Till date the wife of the deceased has not been provided a copy of his suspension letter, let alone other documents”. These words have been communicated to us via a news portal. It can be written with authenticity that at JU there has been bad application/ promiscuous use of power to limit a person’s human rights by such means as illegal suspension without application of mind, throwing to wind the due process of law and leaving the family to fend for itself. The quintessence of human rights is respect for human dignity and here at JU illegal and impermissible means were used for certain ends. It has been a monstrous act and speaks volumes about the coarse functioning of NAAC Accredited Jammu University’s administration. The demands of Jammu University Teachers Association are absolutely genuine and it’s intriguing to see that varsity authorities by ignoring interest of students and institution dignity seemingly encouraging the teachers to prolong their agitation.
The concerned are turning a Nelson’s eye to the needs of the society at large and family members and relatives of the dear departed. Mal-administration is reeking and the people who have their heads in stars have forgotten that human rights are the rights that belong to everyone. The dead has been denuded of his fundamental rights. His family suffers from psychological torture and inflicted immense mental pain. Anxiety and stress are slow poisons and the most learned VC, the head strong Registrar and the members of the CASH Committee must appreciate the genuine concerns. But they will not.
The academicians Prof. RD Sharma, Prof. RR Sharma, Prof. Amitabh Matoo, Prof. YR Malhotra, one Nirmal Singh have not spoken even a single word. Speak they must. The incumbent VC of SMVDU is more interested in adding one more honour to the already list of awards/rewards, that hardly matter ultimately. The VC of Cluster University of Jammu Prof. Bechan Lal as also Prof. Veena Pandita are unaware of the happenings at JU. Lobby system prevails and all the aforesaid shall always play safe. Ab didi ko hi lelo, unka bayaan kahan hai. Late S. Khushwant Singh had rightly said repeatedly that we Indians are knee deep in hypocrisy.
The Holy Quran has mentioned “At the root of hypocrisy is fear and low self-esteem. We use hypocrisy to avoid looking at our shortcomings and figure out our part in it. It typically stems from a sincere belief that we should not be held to the same standards as others because we have better intentions. Our belief is juster, nobler, and sincerer”. Let all the teachers of JU across the length and breadth of our UT read which is 24-Karat.
“Caste based discrimination stalks the educational landscape of Jammu University. Till today what caste we belong to continues to profile our social relations, codify inequalities and governs access to opportunities and privileges” I read today morning. Let me hit the nail on the head today on 1st Navratra. JAMMU UNIVERSITY has wreaked harm on Prof. Chandra Shekhar and his family.
