Following the incident of recent clashes between students' organisations in JPMC, Karachi University and other universities, The Nation has conducted a survey on the issue of the students' politics in which a number of students belonging to various educational institutions expressed their views on this hot issue.

When tried to contact the professors and lecturers of different universities to comment on this issue they avoid replying and said that they were not ready to scarify their employment because all the students' organisations were being operated as co-organisations of national, religious political parties, the senior employees of the educational institutions have alleged in the condition of anonymity.
