Students of Women’s College Anantnag Protest, Demand Reduction in Syllabus

Scores of under graduate students from Government Degree College for women assembled in the college ground in Islamabad in South Kashmir and held a sit in protests against alleged careless attitude of the Kashmir University authorities.
Raising Slogans, ‘We want justice’, Reduce syllabus by 50 per cent for 5th and 6th semesters’, ‘Conduct backlog paper examinations as soon as possible’, the protesting students threatened to intensify the agitation if their demands were not fulfilled.
“We started the under graduate courses in 2015 and were supposed to finish them in 2017, but we are still left with two semesters because of the 2016 unrest and situation thereafter,” a girl said.
They said the university authority has now decided to take our 5th and 6th semester examination jointly. “We are expected to prepare and study two semesters in three months which otherwise take 12 months,” she said.
Due to this reason, they said they are demanding that their syllabus be reduced by 50 per cent so that they can prepare of the examinations.
The protesting students further said that the result of their 1st semester backlog papers, which were held in 2015, are yet to be declared.
“The University is yet to conduct examination of 2nd and 3rd semester backlog subjects,” another student told.
