Students of IBA in Karachi are protesting against the administration for failing to take action against an alleged harasser on campus.
According to the protestors, a student witnessed an act of workplace harassment at IBA and made a complaint to the harassment committee.

The protestors said that instead of taking action against harassment, the student who lodged the complaint is being threatened with expulsion by the disciplinary committee at IBA.
“The student was asked to issue a public apology and remove his social media posts about the incident. His refusal is now being met with pressures of expulsion with the accusation that he is defaming both IBA and the individual who was found harassing his employee.”
“IBA students are therefore protesting against this attitude of the administration and demanding reforms and transparency in the harassment committee as well as accountability of all harassers on campus,” a protestor said.
