Meerut ragging case: Ragging or caste war?

 
Meerut, September 07, 2010, CURE

An incident of ragging rocked the premises of Sir Chotu Ram Engineering College of CCS University late on Sunday night. Kuldeep Singh and Kamlesh Yadav, students of B.Tech second year of the prestigious college affiliated to Chaudhury Charan Singh University, maintained in their complaint that they were thrashed when they denied to obey unjustified and unlawful demands.

In their complaint, they have named four seniors along with their six other unidentified aides. Police admitted of receiving complaint saying that “ action would be initiated after a thorough investigation.’ SP ( City) Prabal Pratap Singh himself looking into the matter said, “ If someone found guilty he won’t be spared.”

Declining the charges, one of the accused Naveen Chaudhry , however, described it a fallout of the ongoing caste rivalry among students, which has been given a drift as an incident of ragging. “Had they been subjected to ragging it would have happened in the previous year. They are just trying to give a hype to the matter to entangle them in a crime case."

CCS campus has witnessed lot of student tussle on caste and regional grounds in the recent past. This incident is also being seen as a consequence of this ongoing caste rivalry.

On the other hand, University administration has denied any such incident and so did the college authorities. DSW, Dr HS Baliyan, expressed ignorance of the occurrence of any such incident. "I have no such information yet." he said.

          Today we can’t take the school security for granted.  There are issues which as a responsible school management concern us. The school violence and crime affect education, and due to lack of proper security set up there is a dwindling property asset. We also realize that the loss prevention planning will have an effect on the quality of education that a school can afford to provide.

         The school security should be realistic in what can be accomplished. The basic step involved is learning how to quickly and permanently reduce crime and violence in the schools. Educators must embrace the use of security principles and methodologies and they should recognize that it is for our own good if we have better and effective security system at school. We must treat security as an integral part of school infrastructure.

        The violence we are confronting in the schools is not solely a school problem, but a problem that must be addressed by communities, houses of worship, businesses and parents as well as educators. Schools should employ both short term as well as long term plans to deal with security related issues. Some strategies demand a change in habits; others involve a change in perception. Together these strategies will probably have a significant effect on solving the problem of crime and school violence.

          Educators are sometimes apprehensive about collecting and maintaining actual data about crime that occurs on school grounds. They fear that the results will reflect negativity or sometimes accurately on a school’s reputation or on an administrators management skills. However, we need to realize that only by acknowledging and analyzing the problem we will be able to solve the problem.

I hope this initiative –“Safe Campus” by Howell will prove to be helpful as it has been for us to mitigate the threats faced by our schools and colleges.

 

God Bless Howell! 

Good Bye!
