Prof Shafiul: Recent appointment of acting dean violates DU ordinance
Former acting dean of the Dhaka University (DU) Social Science Faculty Prof AJM Shafiul Alam Bhuiyan questioned the legality of the university syndicate’s decision to appoint a new acting dean of the faculty at a press conference on Friday. Reading out a statement, Prof Bhuiyan said Dhaka University authorities had appointed him as the acting dean of the Social Science faculty replacing Prof Farid Uddin on July 2, for over a period not more than 90 days or until the appointment of the next elected Dean. He further said: “The university authorities would have to hold an election to elect the next dean. As no election was organised, the authorities could have followed the tradition of the university by extending the tenure of the then acting dean.” “But the university syndicate appointed Prof Sadeka Halim as the new acting dean of the faculty without holding an election, which is a clear violation of Dhaka University Order 1973. This move has damaged the university’s reputation,” he alleged at the press conference. Shafiul claimed in the statement that, in the history of the University, there is no record of appointing an acting dean by replacing another acting dean without a valid reason. Commenting on the issue, acting DU Vice chancellor Prof Akhtaruzzaman told the Dhaka Tribune: “What he (Prof Shafiul) said was not the proper explanation of the law (DU Order 1973). The Syndicate has the jurisdiction to appoint acting deans, and it abides by the ordinance to the letter. The allegations seem flimsy.” In a regular Syndicate meeting held last Wednesday, Sociology professor Sadeka Halim was appointed as the new acting Dean of Social Science faculty, replacing Prof Shafiul Alam Bhuiyan.
