Many children have expressed displeasure and called it to be an “Islamic Institution”; some have expressed happiness of not getting admission there.
However, step taken by NUST is appreciable. As an institution, it should have rules and regulations to maintain discipline and avoid immoral, immodest acts with in the premises. Universities in posh areas of the cities are quite in famous for the ‘indecent acts’ that happens often without check and control. Being a Muslim, as an education institution it falls as responsibility for everyone to direct limitations that do not go beyond our ethical norms of the society.
