Hafsa students seek action against PIMS students
ISLAMABAD, June 4(Daily Times): Thousands of burqa-clad students of Jamia Hafsa on
Sunday staged a demonstration in front of Lal Masjid demanding that the
government punish Christian students of the College of Nursing, Pakistan
Institute of Medical Sciences, for alleged desecration of the holy Quran.
Addressing the protesters, Hamna Abdullah, the head of the students action
committee of Jamia Hafsa, said that the government was not following the
teachings of Islam and was promoting "obscenity" in the name of "enlightened
moderation". She accused the government of breaking its promise of
reconstructing seven mosques in the capital that were demolished because they
were built illegally on state land. Ansa Bint-e-Abdullah said that they were
ready to give their lives for the enforcement of Sharia in Pakistan. She said
that instead of following the teachings of Islam, the government was following
the instructions of the US.
