Bahria University Karachi Campus is very close to the national stadium, where currently cricket matches are being held. Although university has allowed the students to leave at 1 pm, nothing seems to be working out. Because of the traffic jam, students have to wait hours to reach to the university or even have to walk miles to reach their destination. Students are pissed as to why classes are being held, knowing the ongoing circumstances.
Students of Bahria University have written an open letter to the administration narrating the utter pain they have been put through

Bahria University students even listed a number of ways they tried reaching the university given the traffic situation
It was highlighted how everyone had to suffer to take the mandatory classes. Some had to wait long hours to reach to university while some had to take 30 minutes walk to take classes, knowing how unsafe roads can be. Students with disabilities had to suffer great deal while the management was oblivious about it. Not only did the students, but the families, too, had to go through such a stressful event.
Attention was brought back to similar past events but the administration has seemed to learn nothing from it
The university administration was urged to be empathetic and come up with logical solutions to deal with this issue.
The students are demanding safe conditions for students to study in, and well isn’t that a basic right?
It looks like Bahria University really need to seriously look toward the hiring process for its administration and those that they put in charge of student affairs. After all, a university is made for the students and if such a high level educational institution keeps fumbling in serving its students properly, it really needs to review what exactly it’s doing wrong.
