ISLAMABAD The Rector and President of International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) informed the media that the university had no boundary wall and the government had been informed in this regard by the university administration but the authorities concerned paid no attention to it. Professor Fateh Muhammad Malik, IIUI Rector, and Professor Dr Anwar Hussain Siddiqui, IIUI President, were addressing a Press conference on Wednesday. They remarked on the event that the university had received no prior threat, or warning regarding this attack, either verbally or in writing from any organisation. And there was no prior instruction from any government organisation regarding a security threat to the university. They informed that the university administration, on their own initiative and in light of the prevailing situation in the country, had started screening of all vehicles and persons entering the university, however, the area of the university ranging 704 acres lacks a boundary wall, or the type of security normally seen at security installations. The university had already submitted a project to the HEC/federal government to provide necessary funds for the completion of the boundary wall. This is a large project that would cost hundred of millions of rupees. The Rector, President, and the staff of the university expressed their deep sorrow and anguish over these attacks and conveyed their condolences to the families of those martyred in this most shameful attack on this seat of Islamic learning. The staff and students of the university are resolute in their courage in the face of this cowardly attack and we wish to express our gratitude to all those, including our students, staff, emergency, and medical services, who have served above their call of duty in this hour of need, they added. The university has been temporarily closed for the next few days, until October 24 as a mark of respect for those martyred in these attacks, but classes will soon be resumed. Giving details of the blasts they said the fist attack took place at around 3:15pm when a suicide bomber blew himself up at the door of the cafeteria in the womens campus of the university. The attacker was dressed in a 'burqa and was wearing ladies shoes. Our security guard Shaukat present at duty on the main entrance stopped him from entering the building, at which he shot him in the rear abdomen and ran towards the dining hall of the cafeteria. He was again stopped by Pervaiz Masih, a worker in the cafT, at which he blew himself up. As a result of this attack, two students, Miss Sidra Khalid and Miss Amna Tahir died on the spot, along with Pervaiz Masih. Another 35 students were injured in the blast, along with one male and one female worker at the cafT. Out of the injured, Miss Hina, daughter of Sikandar, who was critically injured, passed away at the PAEC hospital the other night. The second attack took place approximately two minutes later in front of the office of the Chairman, Department of Shariah, Professor Dr Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq. This was in the gallery of the first floor in Faculty of Shariah & Law located in Imam Abu Hanifa Block. Fortunately, Dr Zia-ul-Haq had left his office 15 minutes prior to the attack. As a result of this attack, two students of the Arabic department, Khalil-ur-Rehman and Hafiz Nafees died on the sport. Three other persons, Waqar, Zia-ud-Din and Muneer Hussain Anjum were injured. Muneer has been discharged from the hospital after receiving treatment, while the other two are still under treatment in the hospital.
