LAHORE: Secretary General, Jamaat e Islami Liaqat Baloch has expressed deep concern over the clash of students groups at the Punjab University and arrests and the police interference in the campus.

Talking to the members of the university administration, teaching staff, and students’ leaders at the varsity, he said that the youth and the students were an asset not for any single party, but for the entire nation and it was imperative to create an atmosphere of good will and tolerance at the campuses to avoid ugly incidents.

Liaqat Baloch said that the Islami Jamiat e Talaba had a long history of services in the field of education and social activities.

However, he said, that in every era, certain lobbies tried to present some happenings out of proportion only to achieve their evil designs.

He said, had the university authorities, the police and the provincial government taken timely action, the situation could have been controlled.

He also appealed to the student leaders to try to improve the situation and settle their affairs themselves. He also demanded release of those arrested unjustifiably.
