    This is a continuation of the clash that began last week. As I see it, officials should not close the faculty or postpone the exam, due to this ... only those students responsible, should be punished or suspended.

    Students who misbehave so badly should be blacklisted and never be recruited by any respected organization.

    Why only blame the students? Students are a product of the society they live in. Using violent tactics against opponents, has becomes the norm of our society ... so, we need to change the entire rotten system, rathar than blame the students.

    Do not provide the higher education free of charge. Get them paid for their education. The move will make them more concern on their education over unnecessary things.

    all those who think its only the arts undergraduates who create havoc, please open your eyes...
