Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Mar 13: The strike of PG & UG students of Government Dental College Srinagar entered into fifth day today, the protesting students were demanding removal of Professor and HoD of their department for harassing the students. Post graduate and under graduate students of GDC Srinagar alleged that, in the recent past, "Head of the Department (HoD) Dentistry and Endodontics, Dr Mohammad Mushtaq, slapped post graduate student in clinical working area in full public glare where patients, attendants, colleagues and staff was present". A group of PG & UG students said that from long time the HoD has been harassing physically and mentally to the students of GDC Srinagar.
"We had informed the Principal/Dean about the incidents and submitted a written complaint against the said HoD, but despite passing of two and half months no action whatsoever was taken against him", students told Early Times. Students said, the administration has been further harassing them to join back the department and call of protests otherwise there will be negative consequences of it in future. "Irony of the fact is that the administration want students to take Dr Mohammad Mushtaq's verbal and physical abuse for granted and in a good spirit, but that is not possible at all, said students.
They said that in the past we became his drivers; we paid his telephone and other bills from our own pockets, and did his household work, but that does not mean that he will abuse us with no fault of ours. Students said that the college administration is playing with the emotions and sentiments of students as from past two and half months nothing was done to save the future of students, and high pitched drama is being made to save the incompetent HoD who has become habitual of harassing the students over different pretexts.
We met the Deputy Commissioner Srinagar and submitted a representation, adding the students across the valley have supported us for our cause, said a group of students. As according to them Indira Gandhi Government Dental College & Hospital Jammu has also supported the cause by peaceful protest with flex that read, 'in solidarity with the GDC Srinagar Students' in justice to students anywhere is injustice to students everywhere and doctors are no donkeys and rotten dogs, no more abusive words, the cause and demands clearly states that the students be treated in a good manner.
However ET has learnt from sources that most of the students have come from poor families but they are being harassed by the administration over different pretexts.
The PG & UG students have demanded immediate removal of Dr Mohammad Mushtaq as professor and head of the department (HoD) of Endodontics from both the degree courses. The students have appealed the Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti and Health Minister Bali Baghat to intervene into the matter and save the future of hundreds of students of GDC Srinagar, otherwise the course will vanish like anything and the government will be itself responsible for their callous approaches.
