Following the recent incident of arrests of a group of students of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology  (BUET) from Tanguar Haor in Sunamganj and their being freed on bail, general students of the educational institution have taken an oath to ensure a safe campus, reports news agency UNB.

In this regard, BUET students collectively staged a programme in front of the BUET cafeteria on Tuesday and took oath.

“I promise that from this moment on, as a member of the Bangladesh engineering university family, I will fulfill all the personal and collective moral and human responsibilities assigned to me for the welfare and safety of all of this university with utmost honesty and devotion,” the oath said.

“I will always be vocal against every injustice and discrimination that I am aware of on the campus of this university.”

“I also pledge that we will collectively prevent all forms of terrorism and communal violence from arising in this university. We will root out all forms of discriminatory subculture and abuse of power inconsistent with morality. So that no more innocent lives be lost in this yard. We will ensure that no innocent student be subjected to torture from now on.”

After taking the oath, the students arranged a press conference at the same place.

Demanding a proper investigation regarding the current BUET students, arrested from Sunamganj after being doubted as ‘activists of Islami Chhatra Shibir ‘, the students said, “We have requested authority to conduct a probe and we also requested the authority to take immediate steps if they are found guilty.”

“Again, we BUET students expressed our strong position against the return of Ashikul Islam Bitu who was found guilty by BUET authority for ragging and uncooperative manner during Abrar Fahad’s murder investigation. We will not share classes with such a notorious person and if BUET authorities do not take any steps quickly, we will not think twice to boycott classes,” they said.
