Now Women Distract Male Students in University Libraries

Posted in Education, Social, Women with tags , , on November 12, 2014 by swatiaiyer

Looks like a board out of the hoary past of pre-independence days?  Well, not quite.  With just a minor change.  Now it is “Women (and dogs?) not allowed”.  Where?  The Maulana Azad library of the Aligarh Muslim University.

No women or dogs allowed in library:  Aligarh Muslim Univ ban on girl students is a shame

Only, I don’t think dogs would be disallowed inside the library, at least not by any official diktat.  Dogs are after all ‘man’s’ best friend.  But women???  Oh no, no, they are different.  They distract men, lead them into temptation and sin.  Remember the original sin?  It was Eve’s fault after all!

We learn from the mistakes of our elders and betters.  So the AMU has no intention of allowing a repeat of the original sin – at least not in the sacred precincts of their libraries.  So all scheming Jezebels are kept out, so the men can study in peace and aspire towards more lofty goals for their lives.  The library is no place to allow women and distract hard working male students.

Long live education in India!  We are surely a “developing” country – we have even sent a satellite to the Mars which landed in the very first attempt.  Thanks to all our great scientists – all males of course!

Jyotiba Phule, Savitribai Phule, Dhondo Keshav Karve, Raja Ram Mohan Roy and others, my blood boils when I think of what you did for women’s education in this country.  Please forgive them, for they know not what they do.  I wonder how many people in today’s generation outside of Maharashtra have heard of you.  All I can tell them is to ask Wikipedia.

So we can now look forward to a return of the “good old days” that existed before “Indian culture and tradition” was wiped out by the decadent ideas and laws introduced by the British.
