An Anti-Ragging Campaign was organised by the Hindustan University at the MGR Hall, recently.
S Rajendran, Additional Director of Police, State Traffic Planning Cell, was the chief guest, while S Ramachandran, advisor, Hindustan University, Pon Ramalingam, registrar, Hindustan University, A Joseph Stanley, director (Academic), Hindustan University, were the other dignitaries present.
The welcome address was delivered by S Ramachandran, who emphasised on the purpose of the programme which was to promote the idea of anti- ragging among students and better socialising with juniors, thus creating a better environment for all.
Rajendran addressed the gathering and shared his presentation, ‘Say No to Ragging’ with the students of the Hindustan University.
Through his presentation, he conveyed to them that ragging was a ‘sugar-coated term for an uncivilised act’.
Even though the practice came into existence with a good motive — that of breaking the ice between juniors and seniors, it has now become a menace.
Rajendran stressed that seniors should win the hearts and earn the respect of juniors by love and affection and not by ragging.
A vote of thanks was proposed by A Joseph Stanley. Ninan John, dean student affairs, administered the pledge in support of the Anti-Ragging campaign.
The Anti-Ragging Rally was flagged off by the chief guest.
