Explosions on UoP campus expose security lapses
Peshawar: The new wave of bomb explosions in the University of Peshawar has not only panicked the students and other communities, but also exposed the security lapses on the campus that houses four universities, six colleges and several schools.
The university campus witnessed two blasts of minor intensity during the last two weeks. The university administration and the campus police initially declared the incidents as gas cylinder explosion and the blast caused by a fault in the air conditioner, but later it was found that a sufficient amount of explosives had been used in both the explosions.
The blasts caused panic among the people living, studying or serving in the campus, and proved a wake-up call for the university administration, which started strengthening the security measures. According to spokesman for the university, special inquiries had been constituted by the campus police to probe the incidents.
Several meetings at different levels were arranged to look into the situation and avert such incidents in future. Separate meetings were arranged with the security officials, deans committee, teachers, campus police and even employees of the university.
The departments heads have been asked to strictly check entry of the outsiders into their respective departments.
The university administration has also decided to install close-circuit cameras at different places in the university. A quick response force has also been set up to overcome an extraordinary situation in the campus.
The campus police and other relevant circles are still clueless about the perpetrators of the attack. They just shrug off the issue, saying such incidents are a routine in the region these days.
The teachers and students, however, have a different opinion about what is happening in the campus. Several teachers and a number of students interviewed by this correspondent cited different reasons for the incident. But they all did not want to be named.
One senior professor said after attending a meeting pertaining to the security measures: "You know that these meetings are a futile exercise. Nothing more than a mere discussion is made here."
He, however, flayed the campus police and the security staff of the university for the complete failure to stop such incidents. He said there was no coordination between the police and the internal security staff of the university.
The professor revealed that majority of employees appointed in the university for security purposes were not performing duties on the campus and were drawing salaries from the university."Every vice-chancellor or other influential officials of the university take several security staffers with them even after their retirement or transfer from the university. The security staffers perform duties at their houses but take salaries from the university," he said.
He added that currently the university had 300 security staffers on record, but the number of those performing duties on the campus was less than 150. "The remaining are either getting salaries at homes or they have been deputed somewhere outside the university," he said.
Another professor said: "Mere explosives that too of very low intensity were used in both the attacks, which showed that the perpetrators only wanted to create panic in the campus." He said anomalies were being made in the university in admissions, appointments and postings. "This might be an activity of some disgruntled students or even employees. No-one can deny the fact that injustices are being done in the university at every level and these incidents may be an outcome of this repression," he opined.
An assistant professor said that it was quiet premature to jump to the conclusion about the incidents. However, he said the explosions might have been carried out by some saboteurs, who are against the co-education and so-called free environment in the university. But the areas where the incidents took place prove this theory incorrect, as free environment and co-education had nothing to do with Islamiat Department, he added.
"The excessive movement of politicians in the campus can also be a reason behind the incidents, as we see ministers and leaders of one particular party visiting the university so frequently. Through these explosions, the perpetrators may have wanted to give a message to them as well as the university administration," he argued.
