What is going on at COMSATS Institute of Information Technology?
Late last night I received a desperate plea on Facebook from a young man asking me to report a Facebook event that was going to take place at COMSATS’ Lahore campus. The event was titled ‘Protest against female qadyani student and Qadyani management of COMSATS’.
My interest piqued, I clicked on the event link and found a truly horrifying story unfolding by (presumably) COMSATS students and members of the COMSATS Facebook group, where the event was originally posted:
Hashim Ishaque one female student of chemical engineering torn the sticker of quranic verse relating prophet Muhammad and ****** under her footsteps….ab kch is hi tara scene hai agay mjhay nai pta…
Hashim Ishaque hostel ki larkio nay btaya
While facts regarding the female students alleged ‘blasphemy’ for taking down a sticker/poster remained unclear [in fact, aside from what has been revealed online, I can only assume what is being broadcast on social media], many on the Facebook event were ready to play judge, jury and executioner – calling for murder, or at the very least, violence against the girl.
Adil Amin please confirm that what those girls are saying is really true . if yes, then i will inform that that to ISLAMIC jamiyat talba . you should @@ slap her . do not care about police ……bohat marna tha ….. larkyonn se b kuch nahi huaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa………….huh
With our Constitution standing as it is with regards to Ahmadis, and with the ‘freedom’ that the online space offers, our local jihadis felt compelled to delve in conspiracy and extremism; calling for a form of violent persecution that would have made the Nazis proud:
Ali Raza yar ik qadyani student na jo chemical 8th semester ki ha na khatm e nababawat ka ad jo girls hostal k bahir laga hoa tha utar k Nabi pak SAWW ka nam apny paon taly ronda
Ali Raza 3 HODz jo k qadyani hain unhain support kr rhy hain. including MS and chemical

Ali Raza kafir kafir qadyani kafir jo na manay wo b kafir
Adil Amin These Qadiyani should be expel from university .. they have no right to live in PAKISTAN …….. ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Engr Hayat Muhammad the only solution to this is punishment and expelling her to make an example so that such event may not occur next…plz be unite to put them all to their worst result…

Ali Raza lannat on comsats upper management jo ky us qadiyani larki(haramzadi) ko bacharhi hay jiss nay lahore campus main nauzubillah hazoor(s.a.a.w) ki gustakhi ki hay wo bndi apnimaut ap hi mer jaye gi mager tum musalmano kya mun lay ker jao gay allah kay pass…..she should be killed by boys……..wrna lannat hay tum sub students perbhi ager tum kuch na ker sakay to…..
Scrolling through this scum and frankly, illegal references inciting others to violence I found just one voice of reason among the pack:
Aamir Amin I, myself, am alhumdolilah a Muslim and i believe in the finality of prophethood, in its absolute nature. But to be honest, just like i can not imagine a sane Muslim to disgrace Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) or Prophet Jesus (pbuh) or any prophet (pbut) per se, i dont think that any sane (without mental disorder) Qadyani can deliberately disgrace Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Its a matter of a life, Please be EXTREMELY careful and do not take decisions or steps with emotions !
Careful indeed. Under such pressure, faced with students threatening murder alongside protests, COMSATS has allegedly expelled the girl from the university:
Faizan Ahmad Zia Finally the controversial qadyani student is expelled from the university for the stupid act she committed…..confirmed by Director COMSATS Lahore.
What can one say after such an episode?
What can one say about those who said the above words against a fellow human?
I am at a loss for words. It is not unlike living in Nazi Germany, where even those Germans who felt the persecution against the Jews was terrorism could not dare open their mouths for fear of being labeled a traitor, or a Jew themselves. In our case, we who are against this monstrosity rising in our universities and our youth are labeled “Qadiyani” “Atheist” or “Blasphemer”.
There is terror in the air, and if we all keep our mouths shut, it will enslave us, but what are the options?
I have reported the Facebook event to Facebook. I have sent an email to COMSATS and perhaps I will call them. I have personally messaged a few of the above Facebook users, and I have named (and hopefully shamed) them in this blog. I have asked our reporters to follow up on the case.
But I don’t have answers beyond this.
Neither does the administration at COMSATS, if this incident and the anecdotes are to be believed.
Neither does our government.
How do you fight an enemy planted inside the mind itself?
