Wind of change hits Punjab University

The change in the establishment of the Punjab University
Lahore, Jan 02: The progressive "Punjab University Teachers Alliance" is symbolized the change in the political scenario of the Punjab University. The change in the establishment of the Punjab University caused by the winning of the progressive "Punjab University Teachers Alliance" has weakened the hold of the Jamiat in the Punjab University thus has started the power struggle between the different student unions to establish there selves in Punjab University In lieu of the announcement of the lifting of the ban on the student unions, made by the Prim Minister of which notification is yet to be issued, different student unions are organizing themselves among which University Student Federation (USF) and People's Students Federation (PSF) are most prominent.

University Student Federation is winning the support of students due to their non political and open minded stance whereas the Peoples Students Federation (PSF) has also a great opportunity to capitalize due to its liberal stand. Amir Jalal, Information Secretary of University Students Federation (USF) talking to the Frontier Post alleged that Jamiat is a fascist organization which has spread terror among the students and was not the true voice of the students but of the political parties.

He added that support of the political parties corrupt the amateur minds of the students which are used by the political parties for their own vested interests. He said that Jamiat was used by the so-called right wing forces to get the political benefits and show their strength in the demonstrations of the political parties. He alleged the recent incident of firing by Jamiat members on our member is evidence of the brutal mentality of Jamiat. He further alleged that Jamiat now need death to put blame on others for their survival as the students have rejected them. He claimed that USF has no political support from any of the political party and is the true voice of the students.

Zuhaib Butt, General Secretary of the PSF Punjab speaking on the issue said that reign of terror on the university is over as the students have rejected them due to their failure to protect the rights of the students but in fact had spread terror in the minds of the students. He added that Jamiat's main emphasis was on restricting the girls and boys to interact instead of ensuring the provision of rights to the students. He added that these fundamentalists and narrow minded people are in fact, restricting the mental growth of students.

PSF students have training and are aware of the rights of the students and know to attain the target due to its previous experience. Rehan, Secretary Information of the Jamiat talking to the Frontier Post said that notification of the lifting of the ban on the student unions is still not been issued but we are considered to be the voice of the students by majority of the students due to our long term efforts. He added that student unions establish there selves with the support of the students and we are wrongly alleged of the support from the teachers. He further said that our struggle is noteworthy in convincing the government to lift the ban due to which government has announced to lift the ban though the notification is not issued yet.

Commenting on the issue of allegations he added that we were been previously been alleged of various things but nothing was proved so we are working to serve irrespective of the allegations imposed on us. Sunny, General Secretary of Muslim Student Federation (MSF) speaking on the issue said that MSF had been deliberately maligned for terrorizing people but it was all propaganda. He added that we are organizing our selves and are in liaison with our friends and sympathizers, there in Punjab University. He said that change is a good thing and other unions should also get a chance to serve the rights of the students. Mumtaz Malik, Information Secretary talking to the Frontier Post said that we are devising our strategy to unite our students in Punjab University to work to ensure the provision of proper rights to the students.
