Politics in educational institutions

Published: March 19, 2017

KARACHI: Through your esteemed newspaper, we are pleased and honored to express our views on the role politics is playing in educational institutions. Many unfortunate incidents have occurred, and there have been times when we lost our batchmates or some good students to death due to the tussle of power between two student political organisations in the university.

They left us in immense pain and we could do nothing about it. I think it is time we started a campaign to spread awareness about what problems student political organisations face in educational institutions. Being students of any university, one should not turn a blind eye towards the political issues and problems of our educational institutions nor get so entangled in politics that our studies and professionalism is compromised.
