Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid has come heavily upon the recent clash between Chhattra League and Chhattra Shibir activists at Rajshahi University. Directing the university’s vice-chancellor to take punitive measures in this regard, he also noted the the country does not need such goons in universities. “Do we spend the peoples’ money to run state universities to produce such goons”, added the minister. It would be very hard to find a quick reply to this minister’s question. Not only universities, no educational institute can be a factory to manufacture goons. But in reality, our children are now going off-the-track in such educational institutes. They are now getting involved in practices to gain personal benefits. They have now taken up arms instead of books. They are now making constant headlines by creating violence and crimes. They now take pride in brandishing arms and frequently lock in to clashes with rival groups over tender business or hall seats. With change in time, activists of such group attack one another and the educational campus turns into a battlefield. This is nothing new, such clashes have been going on since the Liberation War. The seven murder incident inside the Dhaka University campus has not astonished many. Control of state universities change hands as soon as the government changes. When ever a party is in power, the leaders and activists of its student wing become reckless. Some among them do not even hesitate to commit murders. And this trend is continued year after year. And since the Liberation, around one hundred and twenty nine students have been killed in four public universities, including Dhaka.
