BHU: SVDV students finally vindicated, Dr Firoze Khan resigns, will join Arts faculty to teach Sanskrit

As per latest reports, the BHU's SVDV faculty has confirmed Dr Khan's resignation and has asked the students to stop protests.

Dr Firoze Khan, the Muslim assistant professor whose appointment at the Sanskrit Vidya Dharm Vigyan (SVDV) faculty in BHU had created a furore among the students recently, has finally resigned from the Hindu religious faculty and is set to join the Sanskrit language department under the Arts faculty, as per reports.

While the protests over the appointment of Dr Firoze Khan in the SVDV faculty are still on and some student groups are now considering a ‘fast unto death’ over the unethical and allegedly corrupt decision to appoint a non-Hindu to a faculty that teaches Hindu religious scriptures and Dharmic rituals, sources have informed OpIndia that Dr Firoze Khan has resigned from the SVDV faculty late on Monday night.

As per sources, he is set to join soon in the Sanskrit language department under the faculty of Arts.

A formal announcement by the SVDV faculty has been made notifying the students that the concerned assistant professor has resigned and they can now resume their academic activities.

It is notable here that amidst the students protest over his appointment, Khan had appeared for an interview in the Ayurveda department and the Sanskrit language department under the Arts faculty recently. As per reports, Khan had been selected in both departments.

The chief proctor of the BHU had met the protesting students on Monday. There he had informed that it will be up to Khan to join another department if he is selected. He had also stated that the executive committee will see to it that if selected, Dr Khan is provided with the appointment letter as soon as possible. He had requested the protesting students to have patience.

Keeping the anger of students and the ongoing protests in view, the university administration had clarified that the exams scheduled on December 10 have been postponed.

OpIndia has gathered from sources in the campus that Dr Khan was unwilling to join the Ayurveda department and hence he might have preferred the Sanskrit language department under the Arts faculty to join.

As per the latest updates, the SVDV faculty has confirmed to the protesting students that Dr Firoz Khan has resigned from the post of an assistant professor from the faculty. The authorities have requested the protesting students to stop their agitation and resume their academic activities.
