Imran’s speech at Edwardes College sparks controversy – Pakistan




PESHAWAR: The historic Edwardes College Peshawar has become a center of controversy following what many call the derogatory language used by PTI leader Imran Khan in his address to students against his political opponents at the educational establishment.

To give a tit-for-tat answer to the leader of the PTI, the provincial chairman of the National Awami Party, Aimal Wali Khan, also announced that he would visit the historic institution on October 4 and deliver a speech on different topics. He will be accompanied by ANP pillar Haji Ghulam Ahmed Bilour.

Former students of historic Edwardes College Peshawar, faculty members and parents of students have expressed their displeasure over what they call the indecent remarks used by Imran Khan against his opponents in his speech to students.

Imran Khan was supposed to speak to students about leadership, but instead used slang and derogatory language against his political opponents, including JUI-F leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman and provincial ANP chairman Aimal Wali Khan. .

As an old Edwardian I wish Dr Phil Edmonds were alive and still the Headmaster of Edwardes College Peshawar to say no to making the college a political arena, former Border Patrol Inspector General Abdul Majeed Khan Marwat expressed in his tweet while commenting on Imran Khan’s visit to college.

Dr. Phil Edmonds, who belonged to England and was the most prominent principal of Edwardes College Peshawar from 1955 to 1978, was known for maintaining discipline within the college.

Hello students. Insha Allah III will visit Edwardes College on October 4 at 11 a.m. and my topic of discussion will be constitutional supremacy, student politics, provincial autonomy, terrorism and endangered wildlife, Aimal Wali Khan announced on his Twitter account Saturday.

In conversation with Edwardes College administration officials, faculty members and students, it could not be determined who had invited Imran Khan to deliver his controversial speech to students.

A college administration official told Dawn that they did not invite Imran Khan or Aimal Wali Khan to address the students. As you know we are academicians and have no affiliation with any political party, he said when asked how Imran Khan came and addressed the students.

He said that in fact the Ministry of Higher Education had made a decision regarding Imran Khan’s address to students. He said that Imran Khan’s use of indecent words in his speech disturbed the environment of Edwards College as a debate started in the social circle and on social media about the use of educational institutes to political purposes.

I learned about Aimal Wali Khan’s visit to college through social media. Officially, no correspondence has taken place on this subject, the official said.

The vice-chancellor of a public sector university told Dawn that the subject of Imran Khan’s speech was leadership, however, the language he used was not appropriate for the university environment.

What students will think of the leadership of the country if they see a popular leader like Imran Khan using derogatory language against other leaders of the country, he said.

A college faculty member told Dawn that teachers were not made aware of Imran Khan’s visit and address. He said teachers learned of his arrival when arrangements were made at the college.

He said that a day before the ceremony, they received a message from the director by cellphone. Dear professors, you are requested to remain on the university campus from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday in connection with an important event, he said, quoting the message.

What type of benefit or education was given by Imran Khan to the students in his speech? Was there anything new in his speech? His speech was the same he gave at public rallies after he was ousted from the government, the teacher said.

He said students’ time was very valuable as the Bachelor of Studies (BS) exams were due to start in the third week of the current month.

Edwards College sources told Dawn that students were also unhappy with the visit of political leaders to the college. They said the students also wrote to the college administration that if visits by political leaders were not stopped immediately, they would stage a protest outside the Peshawar Press Club.
