Press Release

Mr. Muhammad Ahsan Bhoon, Chairman, Free Legal Aid Committee of the Pakistan Bar Council and its former Vice-Chairman, and Ch. Hafeez-ur-Rehman, former Chairman, Executive Committee of Pakistan Bar Council, have strongly condemned the brutal action of the Government of Punjab against students of University of the Punjab specially the Pashtoon and Baloch students and their arrests. They deplored that the Provincial Government has miserably failed to maintain law and order essentially required for peaceful atmosphere in premises of the University. The Provincial Government instead of taking action against real culprits responsible for creating unrest in University Campuses, resorted to indiscriminate use of force against students and also arrested them. The uncalled for indiscriminate action of law enforcement agencies of Provincial Government against Baloch & Pashtoon students and their enblock arrests, will create provincialism and hatred against other Provinces which will hamper and erode the national harmony. Therefore, both Mr. Bhoon and Mr. Hafeez-ur-Rehman have demanded of the Government of Punjab for immediate release of all the students and withdrawal of cases registered against them
