Friday March 14, 2014 7:42 PM, IANS

AMU Vice Chancellor Lt. Gen. (retd.) Zameer Uddin Shah Friday said that the university will not tolerate any discrimination against women.

He said AMU was committed to providing female students "liberty, fair and equal deal", adding fear was the key to control the harassment of women.

He was speaking at a one-day workshop on Sexual Harassment: Socio-Legal and Religious Perspective at the university's law faculty.

The objective of the workshop was to create awareness and to sensitize the university's students and staff, the organisers said.

Faculty dean Iqbal Ali Khan contended that only punishing the accused cannot mitigate the agony and pain of the victim. He suggested the victim should be given compensation by decreeing the movable or immovable property of the accused.

AMU pro vice chancellor Brig. (Retd.) S. Ahmad Ali said that no religion approved the harassment of women. He said one needs to change the mindset to curb the harassment.
