Illegal residents in PU hostels
Lahore: The Punjab University (PU) administration has pointed out as many as 25
"illegal occupants" of the Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) in hostels, but has not
been able to evict them so far, officials said on Friday.
Hall Council Chairman Dr Muhammad Akhtar accepted that they had marked the IJT
activists and also requested police to help them vacate hostels from these
Akhtar confirmed the presence of activists in the
hostels and said PU administration was avoiding a crackdown on them, as it would
disturb the peaceful environment of the university. He said they had handed over
a list of the illegal residents to all hostel wardens. He said, "We are doing
our best to keep these 'illegal elements' at bay. We also requested the Muslim
Town police to take action, but cops are not cooperating. Police told us to hold
dialogue with these elements."
He said the university
mosque was hub of the "illegal elements", where they claimed to 'spread' Islam.
Sources on campus said PU administration had increased security on the
campus and around the hostels, adding that new security guards had also been
hired. They said "illegal occupants" could be divided into two categories –
illegal IJT activists and relatives of students. Muhammad Ikram, an
international relations student, said, "IJT activists 'prowl' on campus. They
beat up students and canteen staff and are also trying to impose their 'own
brand' of Islam on students. Due to the current wave of terrorism we feel
insecure in presence of these 'illegal elements'."
Wahdat Road Deputy
Superintendent of Police Naveed Arshad said they had arrested several IJT
activists on the request of the PU administration. He said, "If there is a need
of a 'grand operation' than the PU vice-chancellor should inform
PU IJT Nazim Qaiser Sharif said they were against the
"illegal occupants", adding, "IJT workers are not involved in illegal
activities. Our 90 students were expelled in the past and they are staying in
hostels to peruse their cases." Daily times
