Manhandling, hurling threats
Lahore: The Islami Jamiat Tulaba has again been accused of manhandling and hurling threats this time at a Punjab University teacher, who is also assistant superintendent of Hostel No 19.

PU Kashmiriyat department lecturer Sardar Asghar Iqbal has reported to the vicechancellor and other officials concerned in writing that some IJT activists hah manhandled and threatened him. Punjab University Teachers Alliance leaders Prof Dr Saeed Ahmad Nagra, Dr Shaukat Ali and Dr Zaid Mahmood have also strongly reacted to the `incident' and demanded that the vice-chancellor take stern action against those elements who tried to insult a teacher, and remove the food court near teacher's residence.

They said the VC must ensure teachers' respect on the campus. Mr Iqbal, in his application, stated that there was a food court cabin near his official residence, which was a `den' of IJT activists. On March 13 late evening, Mr Iqbal said he went to the food court along with his three guests, where the staff refused to serve him tea.

In the meantime, four IJT activists came there and said that he would not be served because he had objected to IJT and its food price control committee. Mr Iqbal said as he argued with them, the IJT activists manhandled him and threatened him with dire consequences.

Later, he said, some 15 IJT men came to his house and hurled threats at him. An IJT spokesman said the food court did not serve tea and the teacher had exchanged hot words with its servicemen, due to which the IJT had intervened.

He said some hostel students had also complained against the assistant superintendent, claiming that he used to ask them to do some personal jobs.

About IJT's food price control committee, the spokesman said the students were the major stakeholders who purchased eatables from canteens on the campus as well as hostels' area.

With particular reference to a newly-established canteen at the Institute of Communication Studies, the spokesman said the canteen contractor was selling different food items at exorbitant prices.

He, however, denied that the canteen was closed because male and female students were sitting together. Dawn
