Punjab University Professor Under Fire For Saying Only Women Can Harass Men
People have lambasted a Punjab University professor, Rana Eijaz Ahmed, for making an absurd claim that only ‘women harass men’.
According to the professor, men are never the harassers and he intended to prove this hypothesis in his research paper through ‘scientific and logical reasoning’.
“Not only in Pakistan usually, but in the whole world, females harass males including male teachers and students. My thesis and strong argument are that it is only a woman who can harass a man, a man cannot harass a woman. I have scientific and logical reasoning behind my argument. Historically speaking, Hazrat Yousaf’s example is with us. It may be the only example of harassment recorded in the Quran. I am writing a research paper on this issue and want to dissolve the wrong perception of men harassing women. the case is otherwise,” he shared it on his Facebook account.
Twitterati didn’t let Eijaz, who also heads the International Relations department at PU, go with such remarks.
This is a must read.
Punjab university prof posits that it’s a universally logical fact that “only women harass men, not vice versa”. He quotes Quran as example where Hazrat Yousaf was harassed by Zulaikha. https://t.co/ZDMug4jjqn

Although, a huge majority of the victims are women, both genders harass each other. Gender doesn’t exist in a vacuum & exists with a lot of socio-economic, political & other factors & the weak always suffer.
I want to read his other argument claiming men CANNOT harass. Really? https://t.co/VfOWcaA2fO

How is this shitbag still in a job? In any half civilised nation he would have been made to sling his misogynistic hook by now. https://t.co/GdndWZ47Kq

1. You can’t call your own argument strong.
2. Quranic or other myths cannot be used to back “scientific and logical reasoning”. Even if the stories were true, anecdotes have zero scientific or logical significance. https://t.co/o6HfC2WOVK

What is he even trying to prove?
so that little girl Zainab who was raped and brutality murder, what was that?
I’m not trying to prove anything but he gotta be sensible https://t.co/2oZ6g15nZ3

Professor at Punjab University and head of one of its institutes says there’s no such thing as women being sexually harassed by men – says it’s the other way round and that he is doing research to prove that and to “dissolve the wrong perception that men harass women” pic.twitter.com/2R0HfiB3Jv
