Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid yesterday announced a meeting with the authorities of public and private universities on July 17 to discuss preventive measures against the radicalisation of students at the Krishibid Institution in the capital.
He made the announcement during a meeting at the ministry with Prof Abdul Mannan, chairman of University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh.
Criticising the recent decision taken by North South University (NSU) to cancel enrollment for missing a single semester, the minister said that this does not address the root cause of the issue.
Last year, UGC found Hizb ut-Tahrir’s propaganda material at NSU library. Several teachers and students were terminated and temporarily expelled for allegedly having militant ties, reports media.
