JNU Professor Claims Harassment By College Authorities Due To Her Muslim Identity

While Jawaharlal Nehru University is about to start its new academic session and has  invited applications to fill its teaching vacancies, it is now being questioned on the security and safety of its professors. Rosina Nasir, an assistant professor at JNU, has registered a complaint to the Chairman of Delhi Minority Commission alleging the University for her “discrimination, mistreatment and harassment” based on her Muslim identity.

The DMC in this regard has issued a notice and interim order to the Registrar of JNU demanding reply and action to be taken in this matter before 1st August 2019, failing which a case will be registered against him, the Vice-Chancellor and Chairperson.

In a complaint letter to the DMC, she told that her salary has been terminated since April 2019 without giving any legal reason.  She also mentioned that she hasn’t been assigned any classes to supervise MPhil and PhD students.

“It seems to me if I will not quit the faculty position in the CSSEIP, I will be made to disappear like Najeeb (JNU student who went missing three years ago from his hostel and is still untraceable)” the complaint letter read.

According to News18, a University official said, “She is in the university as a part of a planned project by UGC and is not a permanent employee. Her salary is issued by the UGC and not by the varsity. The UGC had not released the salary but now they have released it and she has been paid.”

A literature student and a writer enmeshed in the politics of illusion and reality. I love writing poetry, articles, and blogs. Reading fiction and debating the non-fiction; music and food are the footholds of my self, in constant flux between real and poetic. I believe life is not invested only in the visible truth, the stone, the stars and you. There are truths in fiction, ghosts, myths, and fairies.
