ANP, PkSF slam for Malakand University clashes

ANP, PkSF slam IJT for 'attacking students'
Peshawar, May 02, 2008: The Awami National Party (ANP) has criticised the Islami Jamiat-e-Talba (IJT) for "carrying out an armed attack on Pakhtun Students Federation (PkSF) activists at the Malakand University on Thursday".

In a press statement issued here, ANP NWFP Information Secretary Arbab Muhammad Zahir alleged that some IJT "terrorists" opened fire on "peaceful" PSF students at the university, injuring three students.

He said that the condition of one of the injured was critical, adding that the IJT was a "terrorist student organisation that has opened centres of terrorism at educational institutions". Through such activities, he added, the IJT was trying to postpone student union elections because "the IJT has left with no future after the revival of students unions".

The ANP leader demanded that the police immediately arrest those responsible for the incident.

Separately, the PkSF has also condemned the IJT over the incident. PkSF NWFP President Shakilur Rehman Barki alleged in a press statement that the IJT was a "terrorist" organisation. "We demand that the government impose a ban on the IJT, arrest those involved in the incident and bring them to justice". Daily Times

Malakand varsity closed after students clash
Timeergara: The University of Malakand was closed for indefinite period and hostels were vacated after clashes between two student organisations on Thursday.

According to sources, clashes erupted when the Pakhtun Students Federation (PkSF) arranged a party to welcome new students and say goodbye to seniors at the convocation hall of the university in Chakdara. However, an armed group of the Islami Jamiat-i-Talaba (IJT) allegedly disrupted the function.

"They (IJT) first blew off some explosive materials near the convocation hall and then started indiscriminate firing injuring three students belonging to the PkSF," Zakir Khan, a student, reportedly told the local police.

The injured students -- identified as Kamran, Qasim and Asif -- were rushed to the DHQ hospital Batkhela, where Kamran and Qasim were referred to Peshawar in critical condition.

After the clashes, the university administration took prompt action and ordered closure of the university for indefinite period and vacated the hostels of both male and female students.

All roads leading to the university were blocked by the administration with the help of law enforcement agencies, said Dost Mohammad Khan, a spokesman for the university.

"The University Public School and University Girls School will remain open," he said.

The Chakdara police confirmed that an FIR had been lodged by a student against the workers of the IJT including Sultan, Muslim, Ashfaq, Masood Shah, Jan Alam, Inayatur Rahman, Fazlullah and Mukhtiar. Dawn

"The worst think in the educational institutions of Pakistan is the student groups. This is the reason students loose most of time, in strikes, clashes etc. Teachers can play a very important role in this regard. If they keep the students busy, all the student concentration will be on studies and nothing will de-track them. (my humble opinion)."
