We should not forget that among university academics there are those who are hugely influential and are considered national icons. Their words have enormous impact and potential for change. The question is: Are they concerned about the plight of the students who attend their classes? Do they not know that some of their students are regularly forced to stay up under the open sky on winter nights till 1:00am or 2:00am? I do not think those influential academics are ignorant of the fact that, in order not to be removed from their valid hall seats, many students have to comply with the whims of political thugs or have to work like bonded slaves. These prominent university teachers write and worry about things domestic and foreign but refuse to discuss the elephant in the room, that is, the ordeal of students. They were supposed to be parent figures to their students but they act like step-parents with all negative associations connected to the term. How can they justify their silence and indifference to the suffering of their own students? Does it not amount to a betrayal of the trust that parents and society place in them?
