Volunteering for The Citizens Foundation by Aimen Zaheed

My life changed for the better when I decided to volunteer at The Citizen's Foundation's camp this summer and I learned a lot. It is extremely common that bright students may suddenly stop coming to school because of conditions at home and having to help out. The teachers had to beg parents to send their children, especially their daughters, to school, and once that was done, sustaining the attendance percentage was a battle in itself because many students failed to show up regularly owing to various issues at home.

The politics of purification by Abbas Shah

Universities like LUMS are portrayed as ‘brainwashing’ centers, where the deliciously hot air of ‘liberalism’ is pumped into impressionable young minds by vindictive PhDs with intentions to take over the world. Even more pressingly, formal measures such as edicts by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) prohibiting anti-Pakistan statements only seem to reify, in some convoluted sense, the existence of an ‘acceptable discourse’ with narrow confines that, in theory, seems to prohibit entire social science disciplines.
