Govt schools, colleges without adequate security measures
Islamabad: Despite the deteriorating law and order situation
in the country, the government instead of releasing funds for security
arrangements at government schools and colleges, merely issued hollow
instructions to the administration of the schools and colleges thus further
raising fears and anxiety among the parents.
Low boundary walls, absence of
security guards and non-provision of any arms and metal detectors by the
government to schools, is a worrisome situation for the parents and teachers as
well. A visit to different schools working under the Federal Directorate of
(FDE) on Friday revealed that the government had provided no funds nor equipment
to ensure security at the schools, which have been taking all the 'necessary'
security measures on their own using students' funds.
Some such measures are
that most of the schools have banned holding of assembly and refreshment breaks
to avoid mass gathering of students and every visitor's identity card is checked
at the gate. Those, who can afford security camera system that cost
Rs60,000-Rs80,000, have installed them but others have only relied on unarmed
Moreover, no public sector school has hired security guard and
'chokidar' deputed at the gate does not have weapons to deal with any security
situation that may arise. Boundary walls of the schools are also in dilapidated
condition, which cannot be raised causing fears among the parents regarding
security of their children.
On the other hand, private schools have taken
sufficient security measures including raising walls, installing security camera
systems and hiring armed security guards. A teacher of FG Girls Higher Secondary
School G-6/1-4 said that the government had provided them nothing but
instructions to improve security measures.
"We have installed security
camera at the cost of Rs60,000 from students' funds which is collected monthly".
'Chwokidar' of FG Comprehensive Higher Secondary School F-6/1, however, said
although the school had purchased two metal detectors yet "We have not been
provided any guns to ward of any incident of terrorism."
A father of a
student complained that all the government schools had plenty of funds but they
spent it on other luxuries and the most important thing in such circumstances
was the security of the children but that was being ignored. Boundary walls of
the most of the schools are low which should be raised at least 8 feet high
according to the instructions of the city administration. The nation

Investigation over twin suicide attacks on IIUI
Islamabad: Investigators are quizzing two Afghan nationals studying in
the Islamic International University Islamabad (IIUI) for their possible links
with the twin suicide bombings that hit the university on October 20, leaving
seven students and one employee dead, a senior official of the institution
"Yes, two of our Afghan students are currently with the
law enforcement agencies who are interrogating them in connection with the
suicide bombings in the university," said the official, who requested not to be
named due to security reasons. When asked, he said, intelligence
agencies had informed the university administration in this regard.
couple of days ago Interior Minister Rehman Malik told the National Assembly
that the government had arrested the mastermind behind the suicide attacks at
the World Food Programme (WFP) offices and the Islamic International University.
The minister did not disclose his identity. Spying agencies are also
working on a second lead; whether a former Afghan professor at IIU's Sharia and
Law department has something to do with the tragic incident in which five female
and two male students lost their lives.
The former professor was removed
from his job few months ago after he developed serious differences with Dr Ziaul
Haq, who is currently heading the Sharia and Law department. The
possibility that the two suicide bombers stayed in the boys' hostel of the
university before striking the campus is also being looked into, both by the
university administration and the intelligence officials.
on the IIU campus was first of its kind in which bombers hit an educational
institution. The attack led to a countrywide closure of educational
institutions in the followings weeks. Still there are some private educational
institutions in the country which are yet to resume their classes.
Terrorist strikes, mostly carried out the suicide attackers, have
significantly increased after the government launched the military operation in
South Waziristan in mid-October. Dawn

Students urged to understand 'terrorism' to save Pakistan
Islamabad: Students at a seminar on 'Understanding Terrorism' condemned
terrorist attacks on the International Islamic University (IIU) and emphasised
on the need for actively engaging students in understanding the phenomenon of
terrorism to enable them to play their role in steering Pakistan out of the
The seminar was organised by students of the Quaid-i-Azam
University (QAU) and National Institute of Pakistan Studies (NIPS), in
collaboration with the National Students Federation.
Irum Jhatial, a
student of NIPS, said the way the term 'terrorism' is used in international
forums often conceals the state's own use of terror. She lamented that the state
still does not decide on who is a 'terrorist' and is continuing to protect and
nurture certain Islamic militant groups while declaring other such groups as
'terrorists'. "Terrorism cannot be defined neutrally in a non-neutral world and
people should be encouraged to develop their own understanding and then take a
position," she said.
Alia Amirali, a student of Anthropology, said even
in this time of crisis, the major political parties have not been able to strike
a consensus. She observed that only PPP is ready to own the current crisis as
'Pakistan's War', whereas all other parties are either hesitant to do so or
reject it altogether as 'America's War'. She criticised the role being played by
the religious parties in particular, saying that these parties are whipping up
anti-Americanism in order to shy away from their hand in promoting Islamic
militancy. She desired a counter-ideology emerging from political quarters,
which could steer Pakistan out of its current existential crisis.
Dev, a student of International Relations Department, highlighted the
politicised nature of media, particularly the opinion-making power of the
anchorpersons, and urged them to present all sides of the picture. He talked
about the difficulties in obtaining facts with regards to terrorism, especially
from the war-torn areas where military operations are underway. A single-source
news item cannot be considered credible, regardless of whoever the source is, he
added. He also highlighted the importance of media in strengthening democracy
and urged it not to become involved in any anti-democratic
Tracing the history of the emergence of terrorism in Pakistan,
Zahid Imroze, a student of Physics Department, began from the time of the Cold
War when the Pakistan-US alliance created the 'mujahideen' to topple the Soviets
in Afghanistan, and said that now these very groups are called 'terrorists'. He
referred to the role of Pakistan's religious parties in providing ideological
and other forms of training to Afghan mujahideen through madrassas, which
continue to exist in even greater number today. Zahid highlighted the heavy
price that both Afghan and Pakistani people are paying as a result of the Cold
War in the form of a large number of refugees, and the escalation of terrorism
due to increasing poverty, hunger and frustration.
In the open
discussion, the students vowed to continue the process of educating themselves
about the root causes of Pakistan's problems, and expressed their determination
to play their role in bringing about the necessary positive changes in the
country and society.
In the end, Dr Azam Chaudhry, organiser of the NIPS
weekly seminar series, expressed his appreciation for the students' effort to
tackle these issues in an academic manner and encouraged them to continue to
engage constructively in the issues of their society.
