Sindh in a historic move has lifted the ban imposed on student unions!

The student unions in the province were banned almost  38 years ago by the former military ruler General Zia-ul-Haq.

The development comes on Friday, as Sindh Assembly approved a bill to lift the ban on student unions at educational institutes in the province.

According to the bill, a student union will be formed in every private and government educational institute. It further stated that enrolled students will be able to vote for the student union or take part in it.

Furthermore, the students would be able to form a union with seven to 11 student members through elections every year. The union will have representation in the institute’s syndicate, senate, and anti-harassment committee.

“No student would be allowed to use or keep weapons on campus,” the bill stated, adding that educational institutes will decide the rules and regulations related to the union two months after the bill is passed.
