A Tribute to Students
November 8, 2007 Leave a comment
Today LUMS saw its biggest ever protest and it’s heartening to see that FAST and other reputable institutions have joined in as well. All these protest by students have been done peacefully and in good Faith.
Yesterday I was hearing Geo and Dr.Shahid and Insar Abbasi were commenting on current state of affairs in the country and the bottom line comment from both of them was that our nation has gone emotionally dead(Behis),reason that no people were coming out on the street. Perhaps they were not aware of the protest held at LUMS on Monday.
Well people come out on streets if they have strong leadership to follow and as present no politician or noticeable figures that can lead people have come out in protest.
That makes this student movement by LUMS, FAST and other leading universities even more commendable and appreciable as these movements and rallies are totally organized and arranged by students without involvement from any other source. This shows a bright light of hope and shows the youth of our Nation are aware and are willing to stand up and fight for the right causes. There is still along way to go but the good thing is that student voices have started to emerge and are being heard nationally and internationally.
