IJT & APMSO clash at Karachi University

Clash in KU leaves one student injured
Karachi, April 7, 2008: The clash between two rival wings of the political organizations on Saturday evening at Karachi University left one student injured.

According to an official source, the clash erupted between Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) and APMSO in front of UBL, campus branch after exchange of hot words between the members of the rival groups. While, Rangers personnel were not present at spot of incident due to the rift between Sachal Rangers and teachers' community, emerging after the manhandling of Dr Riaz Ahmed few days ago by the personnel of Rangers at the Karachi University.

It is pertinent to mention here that this is the second clash at the university, which took place after a few days of the announcement by the newly elected Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani to lift the ban from students' Union in the country.

According to IJT-KU representative, Nauman Burney, "Two activist of APMSO, namely Usman and Mairaj, intercepted IJT worker Ghufran Sohail, when he was entering into the KU at about 6:00pm. They threatened Ghufran, used hot words and conducted aerial firing.

Burney said, "Such incident provoked the workers of the IJT and resulted in a clash, in which IJT worker, Faisal of Applied Chemistry received injuries. The activist of APMSO freely used weapon during the clash and held aerial firing even before the KU teachers."

He alleged APMSO of attacking at the Al-Badar Study Centre of IJT and holding aerial firing. He also accused APMSO of abducting IJT worker, Sad-bin- Abdulwahab at the same day. On the other hand, the central leader of APMSO, Abdul Raheem told The Nation that IJT tried to sabotage the 'Pegham-e-Aman' cricket tournament, organised by APMSO by provoking clash at the KU. The City Nazim was also invited in the final match of the tournament to be held on Monday.

He alleged that Sanaullah, an activist of IJT, and his companion held aerial firing. He further said that Sanaullah was outsider and had been found in several clashes with violent and brutal behaviour. He pointed out, "The members of APMSO did nothing to provoke any one, as the APMSO is already involved in organising a cricket tournament. The allegation of abducting a students and holding aerial firing at any centre of IJT is nothing but illusion."

According to the police officials, "The first clash was happened at Federal Urdu University situated within the jurisdiction of Risala police station (PS) while the second clash was happened between the activists of All Pakistan Muttahida Student Organization (APMSO) and Islami Jamiat Taliba (IJT) at Karachi University situated within the jurisdiction of Mobina Town PS on Saturday evening. The managements and the law enforcers solved the matter. No FIR was registered.
