Month After Namaz Row, Gujarat Varsity Asks Afghan Students To Vacate Hostel

| Updated: April 7, 2024 12:04

Authorities at Gujarat University (GU) have issued official notices to seven students from Afghanistan, instructing them to vacate their hostel rooms on the campus. Five of these students have already complied with the directive, officials confirmed.
The move comes in the wake of a controversy that erupted about a month back involving Afghan students who engaged in an altercation with a group of intruders over offering namaz in the open within the hostel premises.
Following this incident, a delegation from the Afghan consulate visited the university after the ministry of external affairs (MEA) took up the issue.
“These students either have completed their courses or have formalities, such as obtaining transcripts or certificates, pending that do not require their presence on campus. University regulations prohibit students from using hostel facilities once their studies are over. All seven students fall into this category,” explained a senior GU official. “Four have finished their courses, and three have only administrative tasks remaining.”
GU currently hosts approximately 180 students from various countries. University sources revealed that rules were being strictly enforced in response to several instances where students attempted to prolong their stay after completing their coursework and other obligations.
Dr Nirja Gupta, vice-chancellor of GU, said five of the seven students had already left the campus, while the remaining two were expected to comply with the regulations.
“We have notified the Afghan consulate regarding this matter. It was one of the issues discussed during their recent visit to the campus,” she confirmed.
