The High Court today (Mar 28) suspended a notice of the Bangla Department of Dhaka University for six months, which stipulated female students keep their face and ears visible during examinations and presentations.
The High Court bench of Justice KM Kamrul Kuader and Justice Mohammad Ali passed the order after hearing a writ in this regard on Tuesday.
Besides, the court also issued a rule as to why this circular of the Bangla Department would not be declared illegal.
Lawyer Faizullah Faiz, who filed the writ in this regard, stood for the writ in court.
Earlier on February 19, a writ petition was filed in the High Court challenging the validity of the notice to keep all female students' ears and faces visible during examinations and presentations in Dhaka University's Bangla Department.
Earlier on 11 December last year, the Bangla Department of DU issued a notice, signed by the chair, instructing female students to keep their faces and ears visible during all examinations, including viva and presentations.
The notice also warned that if anyone violated the instruction, action would be taken against them as per the university regulation.
