Court provides relief to brilliant student
Lahore: An outstanding and internationally recognised female debater and student of Beaconhouse Defence Campus has got status quo from a local court against her expulsion order issued by the principal concerned, wherein she (principal) had expelled her from the school alleging her for involvement in disciplinary violations.
However, student Minahil Sana Qasim who has won more than 250 awards and prizes of study, speeches, debates and sports had claimed that the principal of the school wanted to promote a least qualified student as head girl due to unknown reasons.
The court in its order said before initiating any proceedings against the petitioner an opportunity of hearing should be given to the student and her parents so that any alleged indiscipline on the part of the petitioner may be rectified.
The court order further directed the school administration for provisionally allowing the petitioner to attend her lectures along with other students of equal ranks so that her educational carrier shall not suffer.
According to Minahil, when she along with court orders reached her school security guards stopped her at the main gate. In the meanwhile, administration of school including the headmaster and principal rushed to the gate and called her names. She maintained that Principal Faiqa Jahangir said, "You are no more a student of this school, therefore you can not enter". The Nation
