His sister was just a soft target, but she proved stronger than steel. This shocked the 'gang of coward criminals' -- in the guise of teachers and administration officials on campus and their patrons outside -- who were very sure of the success of the 'tested' plot on which they had been working for over an year.
As we had said earlier, the KIU is the only university for the over 2 million population of Gilgit-Baltistan, a 72,000-sq/km region, which has no representation in the Pakistani federation (parliament) and is being ruled by the federal government on ad-hoc basis since 1947. And, it seems that to destroy the future of the new generation – direct or indirect attacks, harassment or negative results in examinations – is the part of an evil strategy to stop the people seeking their basic human rights in The Orphanland.
After mutual consultation, when a family member of Mr. Sulemani, started investigation into the matter in Gilgit, he was threatened and harassed at every point. He didn’t take it personally—but dealt it like a professional journalist according to the advice of Mr. Sulemani, who, from Rawalpindi/Islamabad, was in telephonic contact with everyone in Gilgit and Hunza. Here we're publishing the investigator's exclusive write-up.—The Terrorland Team
Another whispered to dilute the bitterness: "Sir, you don't know how powerful she (VC) is—she can run the university even from her home or a foreign country!”
One thing was clear. Dr. Najma Najam was running the university with the help of secret agencies like the Political Agents run the tribal areas in Pakistan: Registrar Dr. Ahsanullah Mir was acting as a Taliban commander on campus; Karim Khan was acting as leader of the Shia community while Manzoor Ali -- assistant professor, physics department and president Ismaili Regional Council Gilgit -- was acting as a tribal leader of the Ismailis. It was shocking. They university admin was not following the rules of the government but had made their own system.
Strangely, Dr. Ahsan, Karim Khan and Prof Manzoor were patronizing student wings on sectarian basis which were acting like their private militia on campus.
"I've worked with the Aga Khan Foundation," Dr. Ahsanullah Mir was always repeating. "Ismailis are peaceful people, solve this issue without wasting time in the long process of courts."
"Prof. Manzoor has made the decision in the Nasira case," Dr. Salma Durrani said one day. "You should solve this within your community," she strangely advised.
"But where are the rules," when asked, Dr. Durrani simply shunned.
Then one day a community leader revealed: "Prof. Manzoor says he is helpless in Nasira's case, as he has to follow the orders from the top—otherwise the powerful Shias on campus and in his Oshkandas locality would make his life miserable."
Then came a harassing call from an ISI official. I was told to meet them at a given time and point. But later they declined it as I had informed Mr. Sulemani about the rendezvous, who told me: "Meet them as an investigative reporter, not as a member of a victim family. Be ready for anything... they can do anything to you!"
Intellectual terrorism & Karakoram International University have become synonymous! The KIU Academic Staff Association has now issued a White Paper on the irregularities of the university admin. But the government is determined to destroy the only institution of higher learning in the backward region.
