Student political groups clash at KU

Student injured in clash at KU
Karachi, April 26: At least one student was injured on Wednesday in a clash between two student political groups at Karachi University, over holding an event in the arts lobby, university officials claim.

"The Islami Jamiat Talba was holding a debate in the arts lobby, when students from the All Pakistan Mohajir Student Organization (APMSO) intervened. An exchange of hot words and derogatory remarks against leaders resulted in one student being beaten up," said Khalid Iraqi, campus adviser at the institute.

When contacted, Sohaib Ahmed, press secretary of Islami Jamiat Talba, said the APMSO tried to spoil a programme that their workers were holding in the lobby."There was a problem getting permission from the university administration, and as a meeting about the issue was in process, some workers from the other group intervened. It was not a big deal, only a slight brawl."

However, the APMSO's information secretary claimed, "Our workers were trying to study in a corner near the place where the event was taking place, when IJT came and asked them to leave."

He said the IJT was trying to promote a brand of Islam in the country where individual freedom is curtailed. "Four of our workers were injured in the scuffle."In the past, a small event where student political groups fought, turned into a series of clashes in educational institutes of the city, where armed political activists injured and sometimes even killed other students.
