Rafi left behind wife of 3 years, grieving community of students..

Shocked at his death just 40 hours after he went underground, Dr Mohammad Rafi Bhat’s students remember their beloved teacher with fondest memories.

Bhat was a favourite of his sociology students at the University of Kashmir where he taught the subject for 18 months. They recall him as for his jolly nature, a unique style of teaching and a habit of exchanging ideas, gifts and books.

 The 30 year old assistant professor, a resident of Chunduna village of Ganderbal district won his doctorate degree in sociology in November 2017 and soon started teaching.A close relative of Bhat said he would talk about the Kashmir dispute since his childhood and stand up against “oppression and atrocities” but never compromised on his studies earning a junior research fellowship with good marks and qualified NET required for teaching higher studies.

On Friday Dr Bhat delivered his last lecture at the sociology department in the Naseem Bagh campus of the university and before heading out took a selfie with some of his students before exchanging gifts with them.
