PESHAWAR - Criticising Khyber Medical College (KMC) professor for thrashing her for observing veil, Canadian nationality holder Misbah Syed has termed the attitude of Prof Bangash against the teaching of Islam.

Addressing a news conference on Tuesday here at Peshawar Press Club, Misbah said that thrashing female students for observing veil in classrooms was condemnable. She added that the professor not only thrashed her for observing veil in classroom, rather he also insulted beard male students for following the Islamic teachings.

“The teacher concerned used to call us as dacoit number 1 and dacoit number 2,” she alleged. She also alleged that after electing as Girls Representative (GR) in class, the professor concerned used very inhuman and immoral words at stage, against me for observing veil in classroom. “When I did argue for following the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAWW), the teacher concerned replied that he even didn’t allow veil to his own daughters,” she further alleged.  

She demanded of the government to constitute an independent commission to carry out an impartial inquiry into the incident and award exemplary punishment to the professor concerned for thrashing her, as she has also a video of the whole discussion.
