According to reports, Islami Jamiat Tulba (IJT) students attacked students celebrating Holi Festival on Punjab University’s (PU) new campus on Monday.

A minimum of 15 Hindu students were injured in the attack. Social media was flooded with videos showing assaults on Hindus on social media.

It was the Hindu community and the Sindh Students Council who organized the Holi festival, according to PU’s Sindh Students Council’s General Secretary Kashif Brohi, with the university administration’s permission, but IJT activists started issuing threats after students posted an invitation to the event on their Facebook pages.

As students gathered outside the PU Law College to celebrate the event, IJT activists assaulted them with guns and batons.

It was reported that 15 members of the Hindu community as well as members of the Sindh Council were injured during the clash, so they could not celebrate the festival with their families.

They were then attacked by security guards with batons and bundled into vans, preventing them from recording their peaceful protest outside the Vice Chancellor’s office.

Sindh Council and Hindu community asked the administration and police to investigate the torturing of IJT activists and security guards.

Ibrahim Shahid, a spokesperson for the IJT, denied that the group threatened the Hindu community during Holi and said that attackers may have used their name without permission.

As part of IJT’s commitment to ensuring religious equality, he added that IJT is committed to ensuring the right of minority communities to hold religious events. During the attack, Shahid stated, IJT was holding Dars-i-Quran on campus and he was not present.

The administration of the university will take action against students who attacked minority community members, according to a spokesperson.

Although the administration had permitted the Hindu community to observe Holi in a hall, the activity was conducted outside.

Spokesman denied the staff had attacked the students, instead stating that they were preventing them from approaching the vice chancellor.

As a result of the clash, there were minor injuries to the students, and those involved will face disciplinary action.
