NAWABSHAH: In a new video recieved by SindhPost, Affluent people of the Jamali tribe can be seen issuing ultimatums to the Sindh government over unresolved matters in the crucial case of sexual harrasment against a helpless student, Farzana Jamali.
There have been protests all across Sindh in solidarity with the victim, Farzana but due to the support of some powerful political figures of Sindh, the Vice Chancellor of Sindh and his cronies have gotten away unscathed, thus far.
The Jamali tribe in solidarity have given a unified statement in favor of Farzana over the Sindh government’s dubious role in the case.
“We will all cease to vote for the People’s party in the elections if this case is not resolved on merit,” they said.
The protester were demanding the removal of Vice Chancellor SBBU and a strict action against the teacher nominated in harassment case by a female student of Benazir University Nawabshah earlier this month.
CM Sindh formed an inquiry commission which has cleared VC and the teacher Amir Khattak from the accusations levied by Farzana.
A few days ago Civil Society and several Students waged protests outside the Karachi Press Club to remove the Vice Chancellor of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University (SBBU) Nawabshah and take strict action against the teacher Amir Khattak for the alleged harassment.

Earlier, Farzana Jamali, a final year student of English at the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University, addressed a press conference and accused the head of her department, Professor Amir Ali Khattak, of harassing her for the past five months.
Further, the student said that when she told her father about the harassment she was facing, he tried to meet the vice chancellor and get to the root of the problem but initially was denied the meeting.
Later when the vice chancellor agreed to meet, he told her father to bury the issue, said Farzana during her press conference, a video of which has gone viral on social media.
She further alleged her father was arrested after he tried to complain and take the issue up with the vice chancellor.
Demanding justice, Jamali said, My education record is excellent and I was among 10 out of 43 students who passed their FPSC screening test.
“Why is this happening with me?” she pleaded.
