Students protest at the New Campus

Today, students from the Institute of Communication Studies (Mass Communication Department), Punjab University led a small protest march within the University’s New Campus.


A group of almost 20 students, boys and girls, marched from their department to the neighboring buildings of the Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Institute of Administrative Sciences (IAS), Institute of Business & Information Technology (IBIT), English Department and the Punjab University Psychology Department where, at each place, more people were added to the march.

The whole protest procession completed its round-trip in less than 30 minutes and ended at ICS. Though students were quite few in number, around 40, but all of them were in high spirits and expressed their concerns on the present crisis by chanting slogans and walking along in a peaceful way.


As the University staff discusses a proper response, more protests and student – staff marches are being planned on campus. The objective strictly remains to protest peacefully and to confine them within the University Campus boundaries.

    I believe that one of the basics to democracy is freedom. Freedom of speech & expression.

    President Musharraf has been running a reverse show for the last 8 years just like any dictator. It means he has gone from GOOD to BAD and from willingness to listen to no guts to listen, thanks to his incompetent advisor’s who are also responsible for his possible demise. What president needs to understand is, this nation is strong enough to stand even after him and his men gone and done with. And they have been more of an pain in ass then any help. The apparently-better shape of economy is courtesy of dollars. The STOCK performance is not due to nation progressing but due to monopolist riches. And how can we forget the STEEL MILL scandal, the SUGAR MILL crisis and all the allotment scandals of ARMY officers and ministers and the list goes on.

    The truth of the time is this man has proved just another (repeat) PAIN IN ASS of this nation.
