This letter is written to draw the attention of the concerned authorities on the state of deception the students of Mass Communication in University of Karachi. Despite owning a separate department with ample available space, the department doesn’t own its own news lab or a TV lab or a studio. Every year thousands of students take admission here lured by the description given in their online as well as printed prospectus, about a separate news lab, recording studio for print and electronic media for both english and urdu medium, whereas the department owns none. In a state where all the private and government institues are introducing mass, media and communication, with state of the art laboratories to meet the demand of the modern world, the department in Karachi University is lacking vey much far behind. The authorites should take a step toward upgrading this department, to facilitate the students coming here on their merit.

UROOSA JADOON,

Karachi, April 20.
