The students of the Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) on Monday protested the fee hike by the administration.
They boycotted classes and held a protest outside the administration block, holding placards and chanting slogans against the management.
The protesters maintained that the fee had been increased by 5 percent once again in the middle of a pandemic.
“We just joined, and they have increased our fees by 5%,” one of the protesting students said. “What have we done? Why do we have to suffer this injustice in the middle of a pandemic?”
Another protester said that freedom of speech was their right, yet, there was no communication between the university management and students.
“We need a students’ union or a group that can diminish this gap between the students and varsity management.”
They warned that if the administration did not withdraw the fee hike, the agitation would continue.
On the other hand, the QAU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Muhammad Ali, took notice of the demonstration and asked students to bring their demands to the management in written instead of protesting.
