Protesters euphoric after Supreme Court ruling on HEC

ISLAMABAD – The protest rally taken out by teachers and students against the Higher Education Commission’s proposed devolution on Tuesday turned euphoric after the participants heard the Supreme Court had barred the government from dissolving the HEC. More than 500 students and professors from various universities had assembled outside the National Press Club to press their demands.
PML-Q lawmaker, Marvi Memon and JUI senator Azam Khan Swati were also there to express solidarity with the students and teachers. The protesters took out a rally from the National Press Club to Parade Ground (facing Parliament House). The tone of the demonstration changed dramatically when the protesters were told that the Supreme Court had restrained the government from devolving the HEC. Upon this the demonstrators chanted slogans hailing ‘independent judiciary’ and dispersed peacefully.
