#UGC seeks report from Sharda University on question about similarities between Hindutva and fascism

It read: “Do you find any similarities between fascism/nazism and Hindu right-wing [Hindutva]? Elaborate with the argument.”
The University Grants Commission on Monday said it found that students had objected to the question and filed a complaint.
“Needless to say that asking students such a question is against the spirit and ethos of our country, which is known for inclusivity and homogeneity and such questions have not been asked,” the higher education regulator said.

Wasn't expecting my recent article in @FortuneIndia "Balancing Act Of #HigherEducation in India" to become contextual in sad light of an Indian student losing life in a distant European conflict in #Ukraine. A short thread summary & link for those interested @rajeevdubey
2/9 "Augmenting Quality Of Average Institutes" in India is paramount to making India the world's "academic capital". Not only does pedigree qualify us to stake a claim but also at stake is a USD $600 B domestic education market & USD $6 trillion global economic opportunity
3/9 Roughly 5 million students defined as #InternationallyMobileStudents study outside their home country each year of these 7 lakh are Indian students a third of whom go to the U.S. & rest to others & spend close to $13 billion under RBI’s liberalized remittance route

Do you remember the #TikTok leggings?

If not then you definitely don't pay attention to social media. If you do remember, then let me introduce you to two guys that made them go viral and sold around 120,000+ units of the leggings in 2 months.

THREAD 🧵 (1/15)
Meet @josetorresrev and me, hi. We're the ones responsible for the hype around the TikTok leggings.

Anyways - we saw the potential of this product and knew that we could make this product pop, so we had to craft a game plan.

What we needed:

यूजीसी ने 24 यूनिवर्सिटी को फर्जी घोषित किया, दिल्ली और उत्तर प्रदेश में ऐसे सबसे ज्यादा 15 विश्वविद्यालय
#UGC ये बताए कि उन बच्चों का भविष्य क्या होगा जिसने इन विश्वविद्यालयों से डिग्री ली है अपने ३-४ साल बर्बाद किया। एक यूनिवर्सिटी ऐसे रातों रात तो खड़ी नहीं हो गई होंगी।
इतने सालों से ध्यान क्यों नहीं दिया गया। यहां पूरा सिस्टम फेल नजर आ रहा है और सरकार और यूजीसी की लापरवाही स्टूडेंट , जो कि हर बार कुछ भी हो स्टूडेंट को ही झेलना पड़ता है और पड़ेगा।

UGC వీటిని నకిలీ యూనివర్శిటీలుగా ప్రకటించింది. వీటికి ఎలాంటి డిగ్రీలూ ఇచ్చే అధికారం లేదు అంటూ UGC సెక్రటరీ రజనీశ్ జైన్ తెలిపార
ఇందులో ఎనిమిది ఉత్తర ప్రదేశ్ లో ఉండగా.. ఢిల్లీ లో ఏడు, ఒడిశా, పశ్చిమ బెంగాల్ లో రెండేసి చొప్పున ఉన్నాయి. కర్నాటక, కేరళ, మహారాష్ట్ర, పుదుచ్చేరి, మహారాష్ట్ర , ఆంధ్రప్రదేశ్ రాష్ట్రాల్లో ఒక్కొక్కటి చొప్పున ఫేక్ వర్శిటీలు ఉన్నట్టు UGC తెలిపింది.
విద్యార్థులు, వారి తల్లిదండ్రులు అప్రమత్తంగా ఉండాలని కోరింది. పిల్లల భవిష్యత్ దృష్ట్యా నకిలీ యూనివర్శిటీల లిస్టును ప్రకటిస్తున్నామని చెప్పింది . #గుంటూరు కేంద్రంగా న‌డుస్తున్న క్రిస్ట్ న్యూ టెస్ట్ మెంట్ డీమ్డ్ యూనివ‌ర్శిటీల న‌కిలీ వ‌ర్శిటీగా @ugc_india ప్ర‌క‌టించింది.

Hon`ble Justice Mr.Sathyanarayana in the hearing of case against #arrear exam, observed that court can only comply with the norms of statutory body like #UGC & #AICTE. The stand of #AICTE is clear that they are not ready to accept the decision of Taminadu government. /1
#UGC will also not accept the decision to cancel the exam. At this pace we can expect the verdict from High court either in the the first or second week of December. That is a very long period of time. By that time even the next semester exams would end. /2
Arrear exam cancellation announcement is a big hoax played by TN CM Mr. EPS @CMOTamilNadu. He has put the future & life of students at risk. This clearly shows his incompetence & one of many decisions that his govt reversed during the #Covid crisis. /3

As per the suggested calendar, admission process in universities will be completed by 31st October 2020 and classes of fresh batch students will commence from 1st November 2020.
To avoid financial hardship being faced by the parents due to #lockdown and related factors, a full refund of fees will be made on account of all cancellation of admissions/ migration of students, up to 30.11.2020, for this very session as a special case.

This thread is about the Arrear exam case that has been filed in the high court.

Advocate Mr. Ramkumar has filed a case in Madras High court, with prayer to quash the Tamilnadu G.O, which cancelled the arrear exams of students - who have paid exam fees. /1
In his plea he claims that TN govt has violated the guidelines of #UGC & #AICTE and also opposes TN govt`s decision on the grounds that it would deteriorate the standard of higher education in the state . The case is not listed for hearing on Monday. /2
In the final year students case against UGC in Supreme Court, even before hearing began I said that the plea of Maharashtra govt is the only valid prayer, as it has invoked Disaster Management Act. Hon`ble judges also raised this crux question whether DMA could override UGC?. /3

This decision of the Tamilnadu government is in violation of the #UGC guidelines issued originally on 29th April & Revised in July. In the UGC guidelines it is very clear that this provision for mark calculation is only for CURRENT academic session. /1
As of now the legal status of the announcement of the TN government must be scrutinized with the guidelines of #UGC. As the matter of State Vs UGC is pending with the supreme court, this announcement will be valid only if the Top court rules in favor of states (DMA). /2
In this scenario, as the announcement of TN govt violates the guidelines, UGC will not approve this or allow this procedure to be extended for arrear exams / back logs. The outcome of the judgement in the SC will decide the future course. /n #StudentLivesMatter

Before the last hearing on case against UGC in Supreme Court, I elucidated that court would scrutiny the legality of the UGC guidelines, with respect to disaster / epidemic act of the States. Hon`ble judges made the same observation in the last hearing. #StudentsLivesMatters /1
Court didn`t engage the petitions that were filed based on mercy. Courts can only interfere if there is a violation of law. The petition of Maha & Delhi govt is the only valid & pivotal petition. Tamilnadu govt should have impleaded in the case too. #StudentsInSCForJustice /2
Courts can only decide based on the legal frame work of the constitution. Tomorrow`s hearing gains much importance because it would address a very salient crisis, whether States can overrule the command of the statutory body like #UGC . #studentsAgainstUGCGuidelines /3

Case against #UGC guidelines to resume hearing tomorrow in the Supreme Court. Usually courts don`t interfere in the policy decision of the govt. UGC is a statutory body. In the affidavit filed by UGC, it has raised the same concern. /1

#31StudentsInSCForJustice #cancelallexams
UGC in the affidavit, has stated that court usually don`t interfere in academic policy of the govt. UGC, as of now is the apex body of higher education in the country. The work of UGC is majorly regulatory in nature especially with regard to grants. /2 #31studentinscagainstugc
The authority, jurisdiction, power & policy framework of #UGC comes under strict scrutiny now, as the States claim that they have more authority over UGC. It is in this deadlock situation, the petition of Mr. @AUThackeray gains greater importance. /3 #CancelExamsInCovid

1. Talking at #EmTechDigital today on 'Preparing for #Deepfakes: Trust and Truth' placing in broader framework of how we think about AI and social good. My cliffnotes here in this thread… (in great company with @red_abebe and @latonero)
2. Quick intro for those don't know @witnessorg; work on helping anyone, anywhere using video and tech for human rights. We're focused on making you more effective, ethical and safe if you do. And that means also keeping eye out for emerging tech threats
3. Big emerging tech threats we're concerned about now are: #AI at intersection with #disinformation, #media manipulation and rising #authoritarianism. We know this is where the rubber hits the road for activists and civic witnesses on the ground.
