Students’ wing of Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party Provincial President urged Vice- Chancellor of Kashmiri University to reconsider the examination of Department of Law to online mode
instead of physical appearance in view of the spike in the COVID-19 positive cases.
In a statement, the provincial student wing president Ibrahim Javid Shah urged the Vice-chancellor of Kashmir university to take online mode examination to the Law students in view of the surge in virus cases in Kashmir.
He said, Students from various Kashmir University affiliated colleges and Department of Law students at Kashmir University who came in delegations have urged for online examination.
“The delegation informed the Apni Student Union Provincial President of the myriad issues that students encounter as a result of the mismanagement at Kashmir University”, the statement said.
Shah said the students who were twice vaccinated were the only ones who took physical classes, which made up only over 20 percent of the entire student count.
“How come Kashmir University has shut off the Covid-19 alarm during exams when the cases are steadily increasing? Holding a physical examination can potentially cause community transmission” he added.
Shah also asked the Vice-Chancellor’s involvement in regard to the hostel facilities given by Kashmir University, where students allegedly dwell in miserable circumstances and the cold weather is causing many problems for them.
He also alleged that the Department of Law does not allow for reassessment of papers submitted and that students must wait a year to take backlog examinations.
Shah stated that the law students have greater responsibility to play an active role in society building by way of becoming responsible lawyers and also members of the judiciary and in future, they have the potency to strengthen the legal justice system.
He demanded that Kashmir University must provide a stable atmosphere for students so that they do not lose access to education during these difficult times.
