Question asked for BA Part-1
Sharda University controversy: Let us inform that after the controversy over the question increased, Assistant Professor Waqas Farooq of the university has resigned on Monday. In a letter sent to Sharda University, the UGC said that it has come to the notice that the students objected to the question and lodged a complaint with the university. Needless to say, asking such a question to students is against the spirit and ethos of our country which is known for inclusiveness and uniformity and such a question should not have been asked. Let us inform that in the question paper of Political Science (Hons) in BA first year examination, students were asked about “Hinduism-Fascism”.
