The study aimed to investigate ragging among university students in Bangladesh. An online questionnaire was completed by 120 female and 110 male university students in Bangladesh. Students agreed that there were political motives behind ragging, and 85.2% had also observed ragging on campus. There was no significant difference between how frequently women and men had been victimised from ragging on campus. Men accepted ragging significantly more than women; they also agreed significantly more that there are political motives behind ragging. Respondents who had been more than average victimised from ragging accepted ragging significantly less than others. They also scored significantly higher on the negative impact of ragging, depression, anxiety, hostility, and political motives behind ragging.
