Students not safe even in educational institutions!

An educational institution is the holiest place for students. It is considered as a safe haven for students as it is a trusted space for learning and sharing knowledge. But what we have been witnessing recently in the country makes us question as to how safe educational institutions are for students. The murder of a female student, Nusrat Jahan Rafi, who used to go to a madrasa in Feni, is the latest example of the lack of safety of students in educational institutions, especially girls. What is so shocking is that it was the head of the madrasa who is allegedly responsible for her death. If these sorts of incidents continue to happen, teachers will eventually lose the trust and respect of students in educational institutions as such occurrences will instill fear among all.

It high time that the government took serious measures to punish those who behave in such a disgusting manner (like the head of Nusrat's madrasa), undermining the right of students to learn and their safety as well.
