Salman Sufi Foundation has launched an independent platform where students and faculty members can submit their complaints and report any harassment they face on campus grounds.
The organisation is the same as the one who launched Women on Wheels.
Salman Sufi, the head of the organisation gave two purposes for this initiative. He says, “Firstly, to provide students/faculty a safe platform to share incidents that the campus administration hasn’t helped them with. We will connect vulnerable students, survivors and witnesses with lawyers/psychologists/LEA.”
“Secondly, to work with the administration of respective universities to solidify their anti-harassment protocols. If the university fails to comply with the agreed upon protocols related to harassment then they will be marked as ‘unsafe’. This will ensure that students are safe and secure while studying. A place of fear cannot be a place of education.”
In a tweet, he writes, “We will be contacting all educational institutions and offer a review of their anti-harassment protocols and help them make them more robust. For this, we will also need volunteers from campuses across Pakistan. If you are interested, please get in touch.”
Furthermore, he also mentions how students and teacher can report an incident.
