”I fully support restoration of student unions, ban is anti-democratic”, says Fawad Ch

Students from 50 cities came out on roads demanding their fundamental rights today.

Students across the country are out on the streets demanding the restoration of their basic rights. One of the demands the students have put forward is to lift the ban from student unions.

Federal Minister for Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhary, has also voiced his support to the student march. In a tweet posted on his official twitter account, the federal minister termed the ban on student unions as ‘undemocratic’.

He further added that “we can always ensure that students politics must remain violence-free and regulations may be introduced for smooth functioning but a ban on students politics amounts to limit future politics.”

Not many people knew about Students’ Solidarity March until a young lady, Arooj Aurangzeb, set the internet on fire as she was seen chanting a verse of a revolutionary poem by Bismil Azimabadi. The video went viral on the internet sparking an online debate.

  • Lift ban on student politics and fresh elections for unions.
