Photo exhibition on Pohela Boishakh calls for security on DU campus
A group of Dhaka University (DU) students organized a protest exhibition to celebrate the Bangla New Year 1425 on Saturday. The exhibition held at the Teacher-Student Centre (TSC) on campus will continue throughout the day. Fahad Al Mahmood, a sophomore in the Department of Television, Film and Photography, organized the event along with his friends, demanding a safe campus for students through the photo exhibition. Earlier in the day, over 100 students gathered at the TSC during Mangal Shobhajatra, and brought out a rally that ended at the exhibition venue. Fahad told the Dhaka Tribune: “The quota reform was necessary, but students’ safety at the campus was even more important. “During the protest, we saw police crackdown in full view of our university's proctor, which was shocking.” Fahad pointed out that the aim of his exhibition is to draw the attention of the university authorities to make the campus safe for all students. All the photographs were captured by different photojournalists from the media during the quota reform protest movement. On April 8, students and jobseekers launched a movement demanding quota reform for government jobs. The demonstrations took a violent turn when police lobbed tear-gas shells and fired rubber bullets. The movement continued for five consecutive days. Demonstrators across the country called off the protest after Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina announced the cancellation of the quota system for public service, during a question-answer session in the parliament.
