University of Balochistan’s Public Relations Director Ameer Hamza Baloch agrees, adding there were many Hazaras studying in the varsity before, but only a few can be seen around campus now. “As target killings increased, their number decreased,” he says without a hint of irony.

In 2010, only 400 girls enrolled in 12th grade in the entire country. Parents often believe that girls should be marrying, not studying.

Recruiting extremists from campuses

The evidence that university campuses have become recruitment beds of Islamist radicalisation is getting stronger. Students are not only just radicalised online, terrorists also have people on the ground who act as recruiters deliberately going around madrassas (seminaries), campuses and mosques looking for vulnerable students to begin the radicalisation process. It is time to take a serious note of student extremism. But do our university and law enforcement forces have information? Are they ready to act?
