A Holi celebration at a law university in Punjab province turned violent after an extremist Islamic student organization attacked the event. The attack, carried out by an organization called Islami Jamiat Tulba, left fifteen Hindu students seriously injured.
According to reports, the students had sought prior permission to celebrate Holi in the university premises, but the university did not grant permission. As a result, the students organized a celebration in the garden of the campus. It was during this celebration that the attack took place.
While the injured students and eyewitnesses have pointed fingers at the Islami Jamiat Tulba, the university authorities have refuted the allegations. The authorities claim that the students of the Islamic organization were reciting the Quran when the incident occurred and they had no role in the conflict.
The injured students have alleged that the police were not even willing to register a case against the attackers. This has sparked outrage among the Hindu community in the region, who have accused the authorities of being biased and failing to protect minorities.
Pakistan is a predominantly Muslim country, and minorities, including Hindus, Christians, and Sikhs, often face discrimination and violence. In recent years, there have been several cases of attacks on minority communities in the country, including the forced conversion of Hindu and Christian girls.
