Girls' hostel evacuation 'not under IJT pressure'

LAHORE, Sep 30, 2007: Punjab University (PU) administration would not take any decision regarding evacuation of the girls' hostel under the Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba's (IJT) pressure, says PU registrar Dr Naeem Ahmed Khan.

He said, "About 3,000 girls are studying in the PU. Due to shortage of hostel facilities for girls, they are already in hot water." He said the PU administration would not allow anyone to create problems for female students. He said that PU was planning to construct new hostels for girls.

PU Hall Council deputy chairman Sami Uzair said, "We are discussing evacuation of girls hostel, but the authorities of hostels 14 and 19 are not willing to vacate their hostels." He said the hall council would not take any decision against the wishes of the students.

Dr Tabassum Jamal, warden of the hostel 7, however, told an entirely different story. She said no hall council authority had approached her regarding evacuation. She said PU acting VC Dr Arif Butt wanted to gain the IJT workers' trust. She said she would not accept any pressure regarding the evacuation.

Aalia Ahmed, a boarder, said girls were living in the hostel's mosque due to insufficient rooms. PU VC Prof Dr Arif Butt on Saturday visited the girls hostel and met with the hall council authorities. Daily Times
