I was an anti-ragger during my time as an undergraduate. I have seen how the inter university student union (IUSU) has, for the most part, forcibly recruited innocent, rural students to carry out their backward agenda with ulterior motives. IUSU is destroying the free thinking culture that should exist in the Universities by brain washing the students with obsolete and incompatible political views. There is no question that IUSU should be tamed. However, I don’t think this is the way to do it. Administrators should be shrewd and enforce law to the letter. Expel the students whose unruly behavior is beyond accepted civility. Suspend the degrees of students who cannot get through the degree program within 5 years. There is no reason why one should stay in any undergraduate degree program for more than 5 years considering the fact that it is “free” education that is coming at a cost to the tax paying people.
yes kill the stupid university buggers. they don’t have brains. Just cramp up a book and pass exams that all they know . burn them with the universities
Ranjith talks the language of the JVP. That is, death and destruction, creating anarchy, as in 71, 88/89. 6000 youths and people died invain in the South for Wijeveera’s dream to be realized.
It is JVP-UNP-TNA-Tamil diaspora combination that fosters and foment inter-university student unrest, led by a few ring leaders, who are not genuine students but are well trained professional JVP saboteurs. They in turn breed more student anarchists who are causing disruption in the seats of learning. The silent majority do not participate in these riots. However, the minority politically motivated and misled hot head marxist students have spoilt it for the majority by their riots, causing a shut-down of the universities country-wide. This is just the beginning of JVP/UNP/TNA/LTTE diaspora strategies to sabotage and subvert the country and the fast-track progress it is making, post the debacle of the LTTE. The enemies of SL cannot bear to see the country progress under Mahinda Chintanaya. They want to halt the progress. They disrupt the peace process, to create another LTTE type uprising. They are traitors who do not love their motherland. The only solution is to catch the ring leaders who are politically led, gather all the evidence from them about their masters who control them, and then destroy the lot. We cannot afford anymore such disruption to university education and to public life. Universities are the highest seats of education which a country needs to progress. They produce the future leaders and entrepreneurs and human resources to build our motherland.
As Januka said above much prudent professional approach is needed to resolve this issue once in for all. It is this crap politicians who get advantage by winding up innocent students and people. Students should start thinking like grown ups and make sure they dont eat the bait of cunning Politicians.
In the schools our children concentrate only on subjects in order to get high marks to gain admission to universities so even though they are 19-20 years old not matuared enough to stand on their own feet so vulnarable. So I think it is a duty of the schools too to make sure their output is not a bunch of amateurs but a group of young adults who can take care of themselves.
Mervyn style actions against these issues only create distress on society and showing the stupidity to the whole world. I guess all can understand where are this “Kelaniya Residents” coming from…
