Dr Pervez Hoodbhoy, a prominent member of the physics department, told the students and faculty of about the historical background of the issue.
He said that it this was not the first attempt to grab QAU’s land. He added that the Capital Development Authority (CDA) should deal with its long-standing issues pending with the villagers and initiate immediate action against land grabbers as he assured them that the long-term comprehensive campaign against the illegal occupation of the varsity land could still be fruitful.
Dr Hoodbhoy said that though a few political parties had condemned the illegal occupation, but mere condemnation is not enough. He said that these parties must come forward and join QAU against land grabbers.
