Law student on IJT & the students’ struggle

This man was one of the many thousands who protested against IJT at the Punjab University New Campus on Thursday. He speaks of what the students of PU are against and why IJT should be condemned for what it has done. Accordingly to him, he and his friends have been members of the IJT and had resigned in protest following the Wednesday events.

TRANSLATION

First Person: “Imran Khan was our guest and guests should never be treated like this. Whoever he was, whatever decision IJT had taken to keep politics out of the University’s campus, still, we students are apolitical and everyone that has gathered here in protest is not supporting any political party. It is not a political movement, and the cause to fight for democracy is one for which people stood united and these guys from IJT have tried to break that unity. Its totally a very shameful act. ”

“Especially we being students of law, why are we studying the PPC (Pakistan Penal Code). We are studying the constitution for its restoration, improvement and to stand for the rule of law and for that we are with the Chief Justice, we are with anyone who is fighting for saving the constituion.”

Second Person (on the left): “Just as my brother has said, we are law students and we cannot see IJT going after Imran Khan who is fighting for the cause of free-judiciary in Paksitan. Yesterday, the IJT has only played to its own political interests and has tried to politicize a neutral movement.”

First Person, again: “Students were beaten by the IJT workers and we still are being threatened by them”

Eye-witnesses have put the number of students, who continued a protest rally against IJT, again, today, almost in double numbers (close to 6,000)!

    Everyone, in fact, thought that IJT will be supporting Imran Khan for he was in an alliance with JUI on the platform of ARD.

    And no one, ever thought otherwise. Besides, many people decided not to attend the address because of a general feeling of disrespect for IJT and its hijacking of all causes in the name of Islam.

    All what happened took place in a very short span of 2 hours and majority of these students did not even know of Imran Khan’s presence well after he had been arrested…

    @Hasan

    Sorry bruv but I can’t digest that
    I could see videos of Imran on students’ shoulders and then all the pushing and grabbing. Anyone who sees this can get what is going on
    the person was being beaten and people around had no idea?? Strange!

    I will not say he is the last hope however i truly beleive that Imran is true and honest to his cause. He has many more leadership traits than any of the leaders of Pakistan in the past 50 years. He has a proven track record of achievments in whatever has has believed in. He is not corrupt like others. He is the only person at the moment who can say NO to anyone for the interest of Pakistan. No one has the guts to do that.

    Thank you Hasan for the video and the translation – I too am utterly disgusted as to how Jamiat continued on its narrow mindedness – they deserve a good sentence to hell

    I think people should see IJT for what it really is — a fascist organization that rules by terror.
