Students, PTI workers chant 'Go Nawaz Go' as Ahsan Iqbal visits SMIU

University authorities fail to take action

Web Desk December 03, 2014

KARACHI: Students of Sindh Madressatul Islam University (SMIU) and workers of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chanted ‘Go Nawaz Go’ following a visit by Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal to the university in Karachi on Wednesday, Express News reported.

The university authorities, however, did not take any action against the students.

The controversial slogan has been reverberating in public gatherings and upper echelons of the government over the past few months, offending many who are a part of and support the PML-N government.

A professor of Balochistan University had also chanted this slogan, as members of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) distributed laptops to students earlier last month.

SHAME ON TRIBUNE, a big shame for spreading wrong news. I am student of SMIU and i was standing at the time Ehsan Iqbal was leaving university premises. I must mention here that all the people enchanting slogans there were outsiders and majority of them in informal dresses, people knew about the visit of Ahsan Iqbal at university so they might already gathered at entrance & exit gates of SMIU. I clear this that none of student enchanted slogans there. SMIU is academic institution and not affiliated or concerned to any political party. We (students) go for study not be a part of political games.
