Student unions at Punjab University: Planned USF rally to demonstrate union's popularity
Lahore: Punjab University (PU) students including members of the University Students Federation (USF) a new student union will rally on campus on Thursday. The rally is meant to show how popular the student union is at the university.

USF Media Secretary Ahsan Chaudhry said that the rally would also sit in front of the vice chancellor's office to protest against the alleged discrimination against Shia students in the hostels.

The atmosphere on campus is quite tense, as the university administration has been struggling to undermine the Islami Jamiat Talaba's (IJT) hold over student affairs. A book fair, which the IJT arranges every year, has been successfully stopped. However, the IJT has not given up and is still working to hold the fair.

Many students have started struggling against the IJT and to this end formed the USF three months ago. USF members also plan to contest student elections against the IJT at Punjab University.

Amir Jalal, a PhD student and USF convener, said that the rally would start from PU Law College and go all over campus. He said that this would be USF's first large rally and that it would help stimulate students to join the union. He said that USF was not affiliated to any political party.

Naveed Alam, a PU student, said that hundreds of students would participate in the rally. He said that the USF would start a movement against the IJT and that the union had the support of countless students whom the IJT had victimised for so many years.

Protest: The USF media secretary said that the protest in front of the VC's office is meant to make him realise the treatment being meted out to Shia students at the hostels.

He said that the administration of Hostel 17 had not given him a room at the hostel because he was a Shia.

He said that the PU Hall Council chairman had announced action against people spreading sectarianism on campus, but no action had been taken. He said that Hall Council officials had told him to appear before Hassan Mobeen, Hostel 17 superintendent, and complain to him.

He alleged that everybody knew that Hassan Mobeen was an IJT supporter and that he was behind the incident where Shia students were not allowed to pray in the hostel mosque.

He said that the hostel administration had told him to move to Hostel 15, but that everybody knew that Hostel 15 was an IJT hub.

Tahir Hussain, a USF worker, said that Hostel 15 was dangerous for USF members. He requested the university administration to inquire into this discriminatory treatment meted out to Shia students or they would protest in front of the Lahore Press Club and Governor's House.

A university official said that the administration was willing to give accommodation to the USF media secretary in Hostel 17, but that another senior official was not allowing this to happen. He said that hostel rooms were allocated according to merit, but some elements were complicating the issue. Daily Times
