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.

In simple words, Dear Students, Dar kay agay Jeet hai! There is strength in numbers and solidarity, don't shy away from taking the right and principled stance and it will only encourage your peers as Jibrail's resolve encouraged fellow students of IBA to speak up and join him.— M.

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.
