Cracking down on students protesting at the Quaid-e-Azam University

Cracking down on students protesting against the Quaid-e-Azam University (QAU) administration, Islamabad police arrested 70 students on Monday in a bid to reopen the university, which has remained closed for over two weeks due to a student-admin showdown.

Negotiations were said to have been successful last week, with the students agreeing to end the strike after the vice chancellor announced that the university's syndicate meetings would also include students.

However, the syndicate members on Friday disallowed students of the QAU Students Federation's Baloch Council from attending the meeting.

The syndicate also upheld the expulsion of students, which the protesters had been seeking to overturn, while conceding ground on the withdrawal of a 10 per cent increase in fees. It also accepted 12 other demands placed by the students.

Baloch Council Chairman Kamran Baloch and other students allege that Baloch students are being victimised by the university administration. The council demands that expelled Baloch students, including the council chairman, be restored.

They allege the university’s Academic Staff Association pressured the vice chancellor and the syndicate not to restore the expelled students.

“We are facing injustice,” another representative, Shahdad Baloch, said, adding that their protest would continue.

According to the university, educational activities at the campus have resumed.
