The authorities of Jagannath University (JnU) on Monday suspended a student for allegedly posting derogatory remarks about Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh). 

The suspended student was identified as Tithi Sarker, a third-year student of the Zoology Department.

A suspension order signed by Registrar Md Ohiduzzaman has been issued.

A show-cause notice was also served seeking an explanation of why her studentship should not be permanently cancelled.

On Saturday, students of the university staged a protest rally under the banner of "general students" demanding permanent expulsion of Tithi Sarkar within 72 hours.

The JnU suspension came at a time when in France a history teacher was beheaded for showing cartoons of the Prophet Mohamed in a free speech lesson in a gruesome attack that has shocked the country and prompted a government crackdown on radical Islam.

The killer, 18-year-old Abdullakh Anzorov, was shot dead by police shortly after the attack on October 16.

Police have raided some 40 homes following the attack, and the government also ordered a mosque to close for six months.

Following this incident, there arose a social media uproar against France, and people started boycotting French goods. Also, there are groups which started hacking various important websites in France. 

A Bangladeshi hacker group, Cyber 71, claimed responsibility for carrying out a series of cyber attacks on several French commercial websites on Sunday.

AFM Al Kibria, the deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s cybercrime investigation department, told Dhaka Tribune: “Hacking is a criminal offence, we always discourage it."
