IBA reinstates the student after a week who was expelled for exposing harassment on the campus!

As being reported, a student named Mohammad Gibrail was reinstated by the Institute of Business Administration Karachi (IBA) on Tuesday.

The update was shared by the lawyer and activist Jibran Nasir in a series of tweets.

“Congratulations to all students! Gibrael’s admission on appeal to [IBA executive director] has been restored unconditionally,” Nasir tweeted.

“The executive director had also committed reforms to make IBA safer, give students representation in admin affairs, and expeditious and transparent inquiry into [the] harassment case,” he added.

IBA had been under criticism for expelling a student who exposed harassment on campus.

The student saw an employee of IBA’s finance department allegedly shouting at and threatening a female employee, and shared the details in a social media post.

 Consequently, a disciplinary procedure was initiated against him, and Mohammad Gibrail who was weeks away from his graduation was expelled from the varsity.

The case led to protests from IBA students and a social media backlash against the institutions decision to expel the student.
