ISLAMABAD – Three universities that include Air University, Bahria University, and NDU in Islamabad have been shut down due to security concerns especially for the upcoming elections.
Bahria University, Air University, and National Defence University have been closed due to security concerns in the Federal Capital.
The elections alongside the Baloch Protestors who have decided a sit-in are the main cause for the closure of these educational institutions.
A thorough operation was conducted at these institutions when security forces after inspection shut them down.
According to sources, university officials stated that the shut down was enforced due to security concerns which has affected the ongoing examination of students as well.
Students of all semesters were in the process of their final exams and the abrupt closure was announced late at night to students.
Furthermore, a day prior to the closure of universities, the Balochistan Caretaker Information Minister Achakzai, debunked some myths held by Baloch protestors and their sit-in over forced-disappearances.
He stated that the narrative being used is harmful for the state alongside the federal capital and can open doors for serious manipulation.
Furthermore, adding to the statement he said that the pictures upheld by the protestors of victims of forced disappearances are actually pictures of terrorists killed in Iran.
He stated that the sit-in scheduled for Islamabad is for ulterior motives and that the people labelled as missing are terrorists and the sit-in is likely to disturb the law and order of the federal capital.
He stated that with this much people sitting wearing masks, there is no identification that any one of the individuals wearing a mask could be a potential terrorist and threat therefore comprising the security of the capital.
