Monday – 5th October, 2009, was decided to be the day for a gathering for the students of 4th year mbbs and 5th(final) year mbbs students of IIMC(Islamic international medical college, under riphah international university) Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Every thing was being planned and practically done by the students themself, including the finance, the universty was not even arranging or providing a place for the gathering, or any source of funding. Students collected their own money,(around 2 lac pakistani rupee) managed every thing themself and so on. Also, the university didn’t gave any day off for the gathering day, we were to have class till 2pm then the gathering was to be at 4pm and the transport was also an issue.
Well, so? well, after all planning, students greatly and nicely invited all the head of departments of the classes and also the principal. Note that principal was involved in this long ago, and every thing was started by his permission. Although even this doesn’t make any sense, as they were not contributing anything, then why shall we need their permission, but the students took it and worked for weeks and weeks for this even.
3 days before the event was to be held, means today, the vice principal and the community medicine department of islamic international medical college came into action and messed up every thing.
Vice Principal Sanaullah, and other community medicine staff, named Ayaz Bhatti, Inam, Shehzad were against the event and were furious that why didn’t students involved them in the event. So they suggested this:
-> there will be seperation in male and female sides, with proper system.
-> only one speech will be done, and then no more function, or scripts etc,
-> serve the food
If the gathering was just for food, then why shall we ask you for all this? the students were preparing for this for more than month, and 4th year students prepared the whole show and every thing.
Remember that IIMC is co-education, with all boys and girls studying together, in same rooms, and same campus, same library, every thing (well that has many apparent issues too)
The community medicine department threatened the students that if they didn’t follow the way that they suggested, they will fail the students of 4th year in the coming annual examination, and this was said in front of the students, not secretly.
The community medicine department of islamic international medical college, along with other departments, like anatomy and biochemistry are known for their dumbness and stupidity in the past too on many occassions.
Almost 90% of the preparation was complete and almost every one got their new dresses and suits stitched and then suddenly, the department wakes up, ruining every thing.
The comments of the students after all this today were:
- vp kutta
- inam kutta
- it was biggest mistake of our life to come in this fucked up institute
But when we see it, infact no one can do anything. Coz almost all the students here are so scared that they can’t take any stand against the officials and the staff of the college. That is probably the reason why the departments are so confident when saying such a stupid thing and acting like idiots. That is the reason why all of the students are suppressed.
If they had confidence and had guts, they would have atleast came out with anything, how many people will they fail? all of the 4th year? all of the 5th year? No! but still, the students are so coward that they don’t wanna take any stand. . .
Don’t know what to say now! . . . and yes, i also believe, that it was one of the biggest mistakes in my life, that i chosed such a institute, even though i got admission in other medical colleges in Pakistan (although private). . .but its not use to cry over spilt milk.
