Bahria University Islamabad is all over social media after a circular from the institution went viral over the internet. According to the circular, male and female students at the university premises need to maintain a minimum distance of 6 inches between themselves or disciplinary actions will be taken otherwise. It further cleared the statement by mentioning that males and females will not be allowed to touch each other. This was followed by an instruction of maintaining the dress code as well.
According to the university, this move would help it limit interaction between two opposite genders in the premises and ensure discipline across the campus.
Here’s the circular that went viral over social media:
Commodore (R) Syed Hasan Mustafa, Director of Bahria University Islamabad has allegedly signed off on the order as well.

Bahria University issued a notification saying girls & boys if sitting together must maintain a distance(exactly 6 inches lol) and that is a laughing stock.
I need to know the reason behind the notification. Anybody from Bahria?

Bahria University trying to show extra efficiency in Ramadan by creating this stupid “6 inch policy” for Ramadan. If you are so concerned for the students welfare so get the air conditioners in the classrooms… https://t.co/bFbTGqn5mF
