KU fails to restore academic activities

Karachi, Sept 20: The tragedy that struck the University of Karachi still continues to cast shadows of gloom over the minds of students and teachers as there were no classes held in the varsity on Wednesday.

The teachers and students expressed their gloom and anger by tying black armbands and keeping away from classes. Rangers personnel outnumbered the students and the Vice Chancellor, Pro Vice Chancellors and their team remained closeted in their offices as they, by the looks of it, had either no clue or no will to ease the tense situation. Dr Khalid Mahmood Iraqi, Student Adviser, has confirmed that classes would resume today (Thursday).

In a related development, the Islami Jamiat Taliba (IJT) has demanded the resignation of Arman Ahmed, Campus Security Officer and Dr Nasreen Aslam Shah, Director, Centre for Excellence in Women Studies, who, according to the IJT, were politicising the situation and helping the aggressors.

In another related incident, Muttahida Talaba Mahaz (United Students Front) demonstrated in front of the Karachi Press Club (KPC) to demand the arrest of the murderers of the students. They said that it was shameful matter that five university students were killed but the KU administration and the government was taking no action to arrest the killers.

The Mahaz, a confederation of different student organisations including the IJT, Imamia Students Organisation (ISO), Pakhtoon Students Organisation and Punjabi Students Association, alleged that the APMSO had based its terrorists in a private university in Gulshan-e-Iqbal and that they were operating from there to terrorise and kill students at their will fearing no action from the government.

The Karachi University Employees Welfare Association has decided to hold an emergency meeting today (Thursday) at the Administration block regarding alleged misbehaviour of IJT activists with its employees. A spokesman of the IJT refuted the allegation saying that the IJT stood for the upkeep of Islamic values and it could not be part of such actions.

The fact, according to him was that Tajuddin, an assistant security officer, was acting as a mole for the APMSO and trying to tilt the balance in APMSO's favour. It was against the code of conduct of the university, IJT stressed. The News
