IJT eyes new members with 'admission stalls' at PU

LAHORE, Aug 30: The Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) is setting up admission stalls in the Punjab University (PU) to attract new students and enhance their political influence in the PU.

IJT set up admission stalls before the start of every academic year to distribute their literature. Numerous admission stalls have been set up this year in the Old Campus, the Political Science department, the Institute of Education and Research (IER), the Chemistry department, Hailey College and the Institute of Communication Studies (ICS). IJT provide literature along with admission guidance to new students. The government has banned political activities in all academic institutions including the PU.

PU registrar Dr Naeem Ahmad Khan said that the PU administration had banned such activities. He said he had shut down two stalls set up by the IJT at the political science and chemistry departments. He said that he had instructed all heads of departments to stop the illegal activities. The PU was trying to facilitate students seeking admissions, especially those from outside the city, through a website, he added.

A PU teacher said that the IJT had set up these admission stalls, with the student advisor Chaudhry Nazir Ahmed's support. He said that the PU authorities had taken many steps to end student politics, but had failed because some teachers symphatise with the IJT.

Chaudhry Nazir Ahmed denied the allegations. He said he was supporting the administration in shutting down the illegal stalls. He said the IJT had been involved in such activities since well before he assumed office.

On Wednesday, the ICS director and dean of behavioral sciences Dr Mugheesuddin Sheikh, warning the IJT nazim Usman Bazmi to refrain from political activities, shut down an admission stall set up by the IJT at the ICS.

Dr Mugheesuddin Sheikh said that the department had set up an information desk, and there was no need for the stalls set up by the IJT. He said that the IJT had set up the stalls while he was out of town. An employee at the ICS said that the admission stall in the ICS premises was set up by force, and the IJT workers had threatened him.

A few days earlier, admission stalls set up by IJT female workers were shut down by the PU dean of sciences and department of Chemistry chairman Dr Jamil Ahmed, but they were set up again.

Dr Jamil Ahmed said that he had set up an admission committee to deal with problems faced by the students. The IJT press secretary Kashif Arif said that they had set up admission stalls for the guidance of new students. He said that students seeking admissions from all across the Punjab, especially female students, suffer for lack of proper guidance. He added that the IJT had no political motives for these stalls.
