In order to express solidarity with the armed forces and condemn the terrorist attack on the Bacha Khan University, a rally was held in front of the Lahore Press Club under the banner of MSM and other student organizations. The students belonging to MSM, MSF, ATI, Imamia Students attended the rally in their large number. They were holding banners and placards with anti-terrorism slogans written on them. They also chanted slogans in support of the armed forces.
Addressing the protesters, MSM Secretary General Rana Tajjamal Hussain said that attacks on the educational institutions are a glaring proof of failure of the government. He asked the rulers to tell as to what kind of Pakistan they want to bequeath to the succeeding generations. He said that it needs to be explained as to who is a hurdle in the full implementation of NAP and why is strict action not being taken against the facilitators of terrorists? He said that the armed forces are fighting the terrorists as part of Operation Zarb-e-Azb whereas the MSM under the leadership of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has launched Zarb-e-Aman and Ilm to complement the anti-terror efforts. He asked the students to take active part in this campaign for establishment of peace and give a matching reply to terrorists and their sympathizers.
