Admission of Bengali Muslim student under tribal quota is under process in Kustia Islamic University
It is learnt that a Bengali Muslim student named Abu Siddique is going to get admission in Kustia Islamic University under tribal quota.
Abu Siddique submitted a tribal certificate collected from circle chief of Bohmong circle (certificate no. 17167) of Bandarban district along with his admission application. The tribal certificate stated that Abu Suddique is from Naikhyongchari upazila in Bandarban and belongs to tribal Pangon community. However, there is no such tribal Pangon community in three hill districts in CHT including Bandarban district.
On the other hand, certificate register of Bohmong circle was checked by reliable source. The source confirmed that the certificate with no. 17167 was issued to Abu Siddique only stating that Abu Siddique is a resident of Naikhyongchari upazila and belongs to Muslim community. Neither ‘tribal’ nor ‘Pangon community’ was mentioned in the certificate issued by circle chief of Bohmong circle.
Indigenous tribal students met vice chancellor Prof. Dr. M Alauddin and head of the Convening Committee on Quota on this issue. Vice chancellor Prof. M Alauddin assured indigenous tribal student to look into the matter. He also asked indigenous tribal students to supply government documents regarding tribal quota so that the Islamic University authority can consider enough for tribal quota as per government policy.
