Army Institute of Law’s newly appointed senior member of the administration addressed a Full House session on the 31st August 2017. That discussion set a chain of some events rolling for all the students which no one thought could ever take place. The said discussion witnessed the senior member addressing the questions that were put up by the students and one such issue was relating to the after-hours timings for girls. Just to brief the readers on this, the girls’ hostel, ever since the fence was installed, was getting locked at 9 o’clock every night. But on 19th August it was decided that the gates would remain open however, the only requirement was for the girls to make an entry. Subsequently though, the same was called just a misinterpretation of orders and it was notified that the gates were to be opened only for two more hours after the roll call and not more than that. This infuriated the girl students, who in turn requested for some extension of timings and when this was taken to the authorities the next day, they reserved this matter open for further discussion on the day of the Full House session.
When the senior member finally came to address the issue regarding the timings of the girls’ hostel, the writer would like to quote the letter that was posted a few days back,
“During the session with the senior member of the administration, when we were informed that the college ‘believed in equality but only to a certain extent’ (another gem of a direct quote), one of our brave Feminazis tried to spend a few minutes reasoning with the senior member. Everyone who cares knows how that went but it ended with a very vague and ambiguous assurance of equality. Feminazi No. 2 then stepped in to ask, straight out, whether the meaning of that answer was that a fence was to be constructed around the men’s hostel and this got the senior member to have no option but to say it- YES.
Now let me explain to you the reason behind that question- it was not asked to rub salt in your wounds or to give the women sitting there sadistic pleasure, it was asked to make it absolutely clear to all the men sitting there that your liberty was in danger. It was asked so that it could elicit a response, hopefully, a fierce response that you would not allow that to happen and that your liberty was dear to you too. What it got instead was widespread laughter.”
Presently, the status quo of the said fence is that possible tenders came to the college to take the measurements and the fence is going to be installed soon.
HOW IT CONCERNS US, THE STUDENTS?
It’s sad to think of the entire situation when the question of liberty was raised and a little equality, we were presented with a situation that both the sides didn’t even fathom. In the end, we have to understand that the student body cannot stand divided. For the constant dislike that goes around the college, we should realise that this dislike will not take us anywhere. We’re just breeding this dislike which might lead to full-fledged hatred, which is exactly what all of us should avoid.
