Sexual harassment incidents not new: IIUI

ISLAMABAD, Feb 12: The International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) has said involvement of senior faculty members in having sexual relation with their female students and juniors was not something new and had also taken place in the past as well. A statement issued by the public relations department of the university on Saturday said: “the previous administration used to hush up such issues but the present administration has adopted a zero tolerance policy in this regard.” The present administration of the university has struck off two officers allegedly found involved in immoral activities, it said, adding their cases had been referred to the disciplinary committee for determination of punishment. “As soon as the committee reached a conclusion, their recommendation will be acted upon. The university has drawn a code of conduct for its employees to follow.” It said that in the reports appearing in a section of the media, an attempt was made to create an impression that the university administration was lenient on such immoral activities, which was actually against the policy of the university. “Parents of the students should be satisfied that the university administration is very vigilant on protection of dignity of its students.”Dawn.
