Three-point demand by Buet students

The students of Buet have placed a three-point demand at a press meet recently, announcing that they would resume their academic activities if the demands are met. The move came after the submission of the charge sheet in Abrar Fahad’s murder case on Wednesday. Their demands include the expulsion of the 25 accused in the murder case; punishment of students involved in previous cases of ragging; and enacting rules that prohibit ragging and organisation-based politics.

It is certainly a matter of shame that such a heinous murder of an innocent student took place in one of the most reputed educational institutions in the country. Therefore, the three-point demand put forward by the students are simply meant for the wellbeing of all. And if it proves successful, not only will it benefit the students of Buet, but it can further be implemented across other educational institutions in Bangladesh to help root out the corruption that has become far too common in recent times.

As the students have boycotted their academic activities following the murder of Abrar Fahad, I think it is of utmost necessity that the authorities take their demand into account so that the students can resume their regular studies.
