Students at IIU protest against Rehman MalikOctober 21, 2009
Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik was at the receiving end of students’ fury when he visited the Islamic International University (IIUI) in Islamabad after the twin blast which rocked the university campus on Tuesday. Angry IIUI students pelted stones on Malik’s bulletproof car and chanted slogans against him when he visited the blast site inside the university campus.
Malik escaped unhurt from the blast site thanks to his guards, but not before witnessing students’ wrath. Malik was not allowed to talk to media persons present inside the campus, as students chanted slogans against the government, The Nation reports. They said the blasts were result of Islamabad’s continuous support to the United States in the latter’s ‘war on terror’.
An unprecedented security cover for Malik also added to the students anger, as they said their friends and fellow students were pushed to death due to lack of proper security arrangements inside the university campus. The deadly twin blasts inside the IIUI campus killed six people, including three female students, injured 29 others. (ANI)
