Mr. Noor Mustafa Awan, Lecturer, has been harassing the female students of the institute throughout his time.

Express July 10, 2011


The text of the letter sent to the vice-chancellor reads:

With due respect, it is stated that Mr. Noor Mustafa Awan, Lecturer, Institute of information technology, has been harassing the female students of the institute throughout his time of this institute.

He has been threatening that if the female students do not co-operate with him in his inappropriate sexual demands, then he will fail them. The female students are going through both mental and physical agony and some of the students are so scared that they are afraid of raising their voice on this issue.

But, this situation is prevailing and getting out of hand and we have now decided to not remain silent on this issue and to bring this alarming issue in the notice of all the authorities and at all possible platforms be it electronic or print media.

We here by request that a callous action may please be taken against him as soon as possible so that he and others like him may learn a lesson. It is requested that in order to prevent any further exploitation of the female students by him in future he must at least be terminated.

Students of Institute of Information Technology, Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad

Hey "unknown" and All "Anonymous":

You have done FOUR major mistakes...

You said that your class fellow was a victim of Mr. Noor Mustafa. (You have not mentioned her name) You said that your classfellow approached female staff to work on that incident. (You have not mentioned her name). Female staff became silent. (may be she did not find truth in it, OR may be she have not been contacted i.e. you have mentioned it wrong here) You have blamed the Management of the Department without mentioning chain of reasons.

Listen "unknown" and all "Anonymous", what is the truth? what is falsification? Since you cant logically express the truth why you claim for justice? Your approach clearly mention your cruel intentions of DEFAMING a man from a Noble profession. Why dont you mention all the identities to help in finding the true facts and resolve the matter... Why you playing the role of a coward person??

Dear all readers: Before thinking about any matter, you should clearly find the facts by genuine sources, than make conclusion that what is TRUE. Writing about anybody should carefully been justified first. I think every reader have understood my point.

This is not the first time that this kind of incident has happened in the department of IT of QAU. My class fellow was also a victim. She was threatened at home as well at the IT department. She raised a voice and discussed her matter to the female staff, in which the female teacher ignored her and put a silent to her mouth. I blame the management of the department.
