Manners of Protest

Despite reports of a planned crackdown against people responsible for Wednesday’s traffic mayhem, IJT ‘miscreants’ blocked the canal along New Campus; again resulting in a massive gridlock. Several buses, including one of Daewoo Expresses were used to block entrances to the University where even Ambulances were not allowed to pass through. This situation continued for a well 4 to 5 hours, after which traffic flow was normalized.

Those who suffered included patients and emergencies headed for Lahore’s three major hospitals; Jinnah, Shiekh Zayed and Doctors Hospital. Now, for these people who are protesting against PU’s so called ‘un islamic’ policies, like regarding start of Musicology classes; does their Islam allow risking lives of those headed for these hospitals!

    haaq haa…!!when we humans gonna learn ..

    See, its just a way to get noticed and these kinds of protests are happening worldwide. They are absolutely wrong, and there should be laws enforced by govs to arrange a protest.

    If one is in hyper state of mind, she/he will lose all sanity and forgets everything including manners or even teachings of their religion. So how can you expect such mannerism from a group which is being fed with fire against the opponents …

    Music is everywhere in Pakistan. What is their problem with it? Seems to me they just need political exposure and any reason (or lack of it) would do.
