Bangladesh student earlier expelled for Muhammad FB post goes missing

A Bangladeshi student, who was suspended by the university where she studies for allegedly posting derogatory remarks on Facebook, mysteriously disappeared on her way to a police station.

One of family members of Tithi Sarkar, who left her home after being summoned by cops of a local police station and since remains incommunicado, sounded alarm over the disappearance.

The mystery over the sudden disappearance of Tithi, who is also the convenor of World Hindu Struggle Council, has deepened in the wake of incidents of murder and atrocities of minority Hindus in Bangladesh.

The country has been witnessing an unprecedented surge of Islamic jihadist activism off late.

The sudden disappearance of the third-year Zoology student of the university has alarmed her family members, who are fearing for the safety and security of the woman.

According to reports, Jagannath University authorities on Monday suspended her for allegedly making derogatory remarks about Islam and the Prophet Muhammad on Facebook.

The suspension order read, “You (Tithi Sarkar) have insulted the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on Facebook and hurt your religious sentiments. He was temporarily expelled until given. You have been directed to inform the Registrar’s Office in writing within the next 10 days as to why you will not be permanently expelled from Jagannath University.

On October 23, soon after screenshots of Facebook comments about Islam and Prophet Muhammad allegedly made by Tithi sparked an online outcry, she filed a general diary with the Pallabi police station claiming that her Facebook account was hacked.

In her complaint, she also said that hackers made derogatory posts and comments to malign her image.

Her elder sister said family members got anxious after repeated mobile calls on Tithi’s mobile went unanswered.

She said all her family members are eagerly waiting for her safe return to home.

Earlier, university authorities also issued a show-cause notice seeking explanation from Tithi about her action.

A three-member probe committee was constituted with business faculty dean Professor Muniruzzaman as head and Islamic Studies department Professors Abdul Odud and computer science and engineering department Associate Professor Abu Layek as members.
