DU’s postgraduate English students want dismissal of 3 teachers

September 17, 2014

 Delhi University’s postgraduate English students are not satisfied with their faculties’ teachings and have complained of not getting anything what they teach in the class.

About 200 MA students have signed a written complaint to the head of the department about the dismissal of the three newly appointed teachers for English, after continuing two months of extremely dissatisfactory lectures. They want them replaced.

"Muslims brought homosexuality to India and taught Indians how to cheat and gamble." This is not the rant of a fringe group activist but the faculty member of Delhi University's English department statement in class, if the students are to be believed.

Another teacher, according to these students, told an MA previous class that "she could (be) teach(ing) them everything wrong because that was her first class".

"She often misses classes without giving any prior notification. She conflates topics, lacks clarity and fails to explain topics (including important literary movements) in an intelligible manner," says the letter one of the teachers.


She's also accused of not taking term papers for internal assessment. The second teacher's remark about Muslims the students found "condemnable". And a third, the letter says, completed Bertolt Brecht's Life of Galileo in just two lectures which normally takes several classes to complete.
