QUAID-E-AZAM University (QAU), Islamabad stands tall as an institution that imparts quality education, good governance and solid work ethics. Unfortunately, this institution is playing havoc with students’ lives due to its shoddy mismanagement. There is a frequent increase in tuition and hostel fees. Students come here from all over the country to seek quality education. Most of these students are from remote, poverty-ridden areas, unable to afford heavy fees. Vice Chancellor gave those students hope that their issues would be looked into. But, the administration did not do much and charged certain allegations against students.
Institutions are run by mutual cooperation and coordination of students as well as the administration. This issue should not have been personalised; it does not concern any one individual. All legitimate demands of the students should be given importance so that they continue their studies without any tension.
QAU is one of the country’s leading intuitions. In no way should its good name be besmirched. It is demanded that the ‘punished’ students should be allowed back into the university so that they can carry on with their studies.
