LAHORE - Punjab University Deans Committee in a meeting chaired by Vice Chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran has demanded of the Punjab government to launch crackdown against IJT activists responsible for the ransacking of VCs Office and residence as well as other offices and causing serious injuries to Disciplinary Committee Chairman Prof Iftikhar Baloch on Thursday. Describing the attack on Prof Dr Iftikhar Bloch as a murder attempt, the committee observed that it was the most unfortunate incident in the history of the university. The Academic Staff Association has also decided to embark upon indefinite boycott of classes until all the miscreants, illegally residing in the university hostels, are ousted from the varsity premises and a peaceful academic atmosphere is restored in the campus. The general body of the Academic Staff Association, which met here Friday under the chairmanship of its President Prof Dr Saeed Akhtar decided that as a protest against the incident of IJT hooliganism and murderous attack on Prof Iftikhar Baloch, all the university teachers would continue indefinite boycott of their classes until the varsity premises are cleared off all the miscreants who are creating harassment amongst students and faculty members and a peaceful environment is restored. The meeting vowed to continue their peaceful protest in a democratic fashion and would bring out protest demonstration on daily basis. A handful of IJT activists allegedly Thursday ransacked the office of Chairman Disciplinary Committee Dr Iftikhar Baloch and the vice chancellor office while expressing their resentment against expulsion of some students on misconduct. Meanwhile the IJT staged a protest demonstration after Juma prayer outside central mosque in the New Campus to condemn the persons responsible for injuring Dr Iftikhar Baloch and ransack of VC Office. They said the persons involved in the incident do not belong to the IJT and perhaps the incident was result of an enmity. A spokesman of the IJT Hafiz Affan said there is dispute with the university administration on holding of Book Fair. Last year they organised book fair in collaboration with the university administration. This year too they planned the book fair on 27, 28 and 29 March but postponed due to convocation on that dates. Now the university has announced that it will not allow anybody to hold the book fair. He said expelled students and their supporters staged a protest demonstration in the morning but it was called off on the intervention of the IJT chief. He said regarding complaints of outsiders residing in the hostel with arms, the IJT invited the police and university administration in the presence of the Governor Punjab in the past and this offer is still valid as they do not support any illegal activity including illegal stay and keeping of arms in the hostels.
