Jamiat does it again!

Lahore, Feb 02, 2008: The Punjab University's (PU's) Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) activists on Friday allegedly thrashed the members of the Student Action Committee (SAC) and stopped them from distributing pamphlets for the independence of the judiciary and the media.

The SAC members said dozens of IJT workers tore the pamphlets that contained the message for the freedom of the media and the judiciary. "They threatened us of dire consequences if we try to do such activities in the PU," they added.

SAC convener Sundas Hurain said the IJT activists had beaten up SAC members, and the committee would protest against the incident.

PU IJT media secretary Rehan Tarq, denying the allegation, said none of their workers had attacked any SAC member.

Rafiullah Awan, a student of PU Physics Department, said that the IJT workers, wearing Jamiat's badges, attacked him and two of his friends, Yasir Abdul Haleem and M Azhar Imran, when they were distributing the pamphlets at the PU Central Mosque after Friday prayers. He said Wajid, a former IJT nazim at the PU Islamic Studies Department, was identifiable. He said the pamphlets were only to urge the students to participate in a rally for the freedom of the judiciary and the media, scheduled for February 2 (today) at Nasir Bagh.

A PU teacher said that with the appointment of the new vice chancellor (VC), Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran, the IJT halted their activities. "Dr Kamran is much concerned about the existence of the IJT in the university," he added. He said the IJT workers were in search for a time to resume their activities.

"The PU teachers, who are sympathetic towards the IJT, have started raising voices against the VC following the removal of a PU teacher, Mian Aftab Ahmed, the former PU Applied Psychology Department head," he said.

PU official spokesman Dr Mujahid Mansoori said he got the news in this connection, and appropriate action would be take after an investigation. "The PU administration will not allow any student to take the law in his hands," he added.

Dr Mansoori said the administration would not allow any student to become part of any political organisation. "The administration is framing a policy for the students, and an official announcement will be made soon in this connection," he said.

A PU student said the IJT was notorious for imposing its specific agenda on the PU students. He said the students had also initiated a movement against the IJT following the manhandling of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan in the campus a few months ago. He said due to the Jamiat's strong hold in the university, they had also misbehaved with some of the teachers in the past, but no action was taken against them. He said the IJT workers also told students not to take part in anti-IJT movements. Daily Times
