Ban on 'objectionable' concerts in campuses
Public, private campuses: House wants concerts banned
Lahore, Jan 26: The Punjab Assembly on Tuesday adopted a
resolution seeking a ban on 'objectionable' concerts in all public and
private educational institutions in the province.
resolution was moved by PML-Q's Seemal Kamran who wanted a ban on all
concerts by the educational institutions, terming them unethical.
Sanaullah Khan said the resolution had been moved in reaction to a
recent concert by a private institution at the Alhamra Cultural Complex
where three girl students died in a stampede. He said all concerts were
not unethical and he had no objection to the resolution if it contained
the word "unethical concerts."
He said the news of the event was
marginalized because the institution belonged to the owners of a media
house. The media would have made it an issue had there been a government
institution involved, he said.
Rana was quickly obliged and the resolution was adopted by inserting the word of his choice - 'objectionable' concerts.
house also adopted four other resolutions and kept another pending
because of the absence of its mover. The fifth resolution sought to be
moved by PML-Q's Amna Ulfat about a request to the federal government to
ban showing of Indian movies in Pakistan was found infructuous after
the law minister said the subject had been devolved to the provinces and
Punjab was adopting the relevant law.
Ms Samina Khawar Hayat's
resolution was adopted. It sought recommendation of the house to the
federal government to grant blue passports to the MPAs as were being
given to the MNAs and senators.
The second adopted resolution was
moved by Chaudhry Zaheer, asking the provincial government to make the
federal government save wastage of billions of dollars obtained as
foreign loans for running Scarp tubewells.
The third adopted
resolution was moved by Ms Humaira Owais Shahid which recommended the
provincial government adopt population control steps, form a
comprehensive related policy and allocate funds for the purpose in the
The fourth adopted resolution was moved by Chaudhry
Amir Sultan Cheema, demanding proper waiting rooms for the attendants of
patients in all government hospitals in the province.
resolution which was deferred was moved by Mr Ziaullah Shah, seeking
boundary walls around all graveyards in the province, and steps for
curtailing theft of shrouds and the occult there.

profession were sitting on the roads protesting for their genuine
rights. Daily times
