Students of the University of Prishtina in Kosovo are protesting against University`s Rector Ibrahim Gashi asking his resign. Hundreds of students have been gathering for a week against rectors false scientific work published in an Indian magazine. Though the protest was peaceful and legitimate police has intervened not letting them get into Rectors area. Rector on the other hand is pretending he did nothing wrong and he will not resign, he said that students are involved and driven by political parties and that there are not a lot of students protesting hence he will not resign. Today`s march was supported from civil society and many other organizations.
According to some news portals here in Kosovo, there are many other professors at University of Prishtina who might have scientific publications in false magazines around the world.
