Teachers up against 'MNA-led rowdyism'
Islamabad: Teachers of the Government Boys College F-10/4 have announced that they will observe a token strike against alleged rowdyism by a group led by PML-N MNA Anjum Aqeel Khan at the college on Wednesday.

Professor Qasim Masood, President of Federal College Teachers Association, alleged that the armed group stormed into the college and roughed up Professor Laiq Ali Khan after a candidate recommended by the MNA was refused admission.

"We have called for a token strike and will also stage protest against the incident," said Prof Masood.

Prof Gul Mohammad Swati, head of the admission committee, alleged that professors present in the college were attacked by the group.

"The PML-N legislator threw a shoe at Prof Laiq Ali Khan and also used foul language against the educationists besides trying to thrash the professor. However, we resisted his action," he alleged.

"It is very sad and tragic to see the way a PML-N legislator behaved and treated the professors," he said.

Several head boys were also present during the incident in which MNA Anjum Aqeel allegedly manhandled Prof Laiq along with his 12 supporters.

"I was abused by the legislator in the principal's room while my colleagues rescued me from his supporters who were armed with weapons," Prof Laiq said.

He said the attackers smashed the glass door of the staff room "and harassed my colleagues", he said.

"We have registered our complaint with the Shalimar police and narrated the incident in the application. The police have assured us that they will initiate action against the culprits," he added.

He said the student recommended by the PML-N MNA was not eligible for admission to 11th class in arts group because he had secured only 42 per cent marks in 10th class against the minimum requirement of 45 per cent marks as per policy.

MNA Anjum Aqeel told media persons at the National Press Club later that he had reached the college to help a student of his constituency who was not being entertained by the college administration but was not involved in the incident.

"I had contacted the principal several times to plead the poor student's case who belonged to the Shah Allah Ditta village near Golra Sharif but the management was not entertaining him."

He said when he entered the college he was accompanied with only one guard and none other.

The MNA said he was not aware of the merit criteria of the college but had gone there to help out the student who had allegedly been manhandled by the college administration.

It may be recalled that earlier a PML-N MNA was removed from the party membership on the charge of involvement in a fake examination case while a female MPA was forced to resign after being allegedly involved in a credit card theft. Dawn
