I have been trying to know about the topic " UN a toothless tiger". I could only understand that due to the ineffective sanctions imposed by US on Iran, the former has earned the title of toothless tiger.

Can someone give me more insight on the in why it is called so? and is the reason mentioned above correct?

There are many issues here. Once a country has become the member of the UN, it has to sign some treaties and abide by some commonly agreed laws in order to protect the peace and harmony in the world. Now countries bypass the treaty in order to protect their vested interest in the matters of international conflicts.

UN has not been able to do anything in case of a stronger nation whereas the weaker nations are generally made to toe the line.

Some of the examples are that of Syria, Iraq and many more.

I am listing some links here, go through them and get back in case you need further help.

How is the issue of proxy attendance dealt with then?

There are some random checks and attendance taken by faculty as well as PGP Office. The issue of proxy attendance is dealt with very seriously.

There is a digital display which gives the count of RFID cards swiped for the class. Since the seating capacity of each class room is fixed and exactly equal to the total strength of the section, the number of vacant chairs is equal to absentees. So its pretty easy for the faculty to figure out.
