University suspends lecturer who set question on fascism

An assistant professor at Sharda University in India was suspended on Friday 6 May for an ‘objectionable’ question in a mid-term political science paper for undergraduate students, writes Shafaque Alam for TNN.

There were eight questions in the paper, conducted on Thursday afternoon, which carried a total of 50 marks. But question number six is what drew attention. “Do you find any similarities between Fascism/Nazism and Hindu right wing (Hindutva)? Elaborate with arguments”, it asked. The question carried seven marks.

The faculty member was suspended after some students complained to university officials. The university also formed a three-member committee to investigate after the question made it to Twitter, setting off a furore.
