FG College for Women affidavits condition

Students resent affidavit condition
Peshawar, Aug 27: Girl students seeking admission to FG College for Women, Peshawar Cantt, have asked its administration to exempt them from submitting affidavits about non-participation in political activities during their stay at the college.

The students seeking admission to the college are required to submit affidavits and Cantonment Residency Certificate. The first is meant for assuring the college that a student would not take part in politics, the second is produced to prove that a student who is seeking admission lives in the Cantonment limits.

Wishing anonymity a student of the college said that she had submitted affidavit at the time of getting admission to first year, adding that she was again asked to submit fresh affidavit for seeking admission to third year in her college.

"The condition should be waived off to prevent girl students from visiting courts for getting affidavits," he said. Principal of the FG College for Women Rubina Saeed, when contacted, said the college was meant for the children of army personnel but it had allocated a specific quota for the children of civilians living in the Cantonment.

The students living in the Cantonment area, she said, were required to produce cantonment residency certificate for taking admission to the college. She, however, said that the students who had studied at the college for first and second year were not required to submit Cantonment Residence Certificate for seeking admission to 3rd year.

About the submission of the affidavits, she added it was one of the requirements for seeking admission to the college. "The objective behind this practice is to make the students abide by rules notified in the prospectus," she clarified.
