KU Classes postponed this week due to rain

Karachi, Aug 25: The rains that hit Karachi on Wednesday left the faculty of arts inundated with water, causing most classes to be withheld this week.

The departments of Sindhi, General History, International Relations, English and Urdu were the most affected. Students said they found it astonishing that rainwater from the day before had still not been cleared.

It must be mentioned that this is the third time it has rained this month and the same departments were affected earlier. However, the university administration repeatedly failed to prevent flooding, which is caused because of the green patches between the departments and corridors, where the grass is growing unchecked. Therefore, rainwater accumulates in these areas. This was highlighted by the chairpersons of these departments, especially Prof. Nargis Rashid of the Department of General History, but all entreaties fell on deaf ears.

The departments located on the ground floors have been the most affected. However, even in the English and Urdu departments, classes could not be held as teachers and staff were unable to go upstairs on account of the stagnant and filthy water that stood in the corridor, particularly near the stairs.

Similarly, the Maskan gate near Bhayani Heights, which was inundated with gutter and rainwater, forced students to wade through filthy mud. Some students and teachers had to go to the university's silver gate to avoid the puddles. The news
