Aabidah is student of Bahauddin Zakariya University Multan. She tells that she likes to read Gixmi.com daily because she finds a lot of useful information about Pakistan and India on it. Today she wants to say something about her university where she is studying. Laiba tells that under the present circumstances when the Higher Education Commission (HEC) has curtailed its budget to the extent that it is adversely affecting even the bare minimum requirement of the university, the survival of these institutions solely depends on adopting measures to generate their own funds to maintain the standard of education, which is an absolute must for a developing country like ours. Keeping in view these facts, one can imagine the fate of institutions in a city like Multan.
Aabidah more tells that quite contrary to this belief when you enter the gates of the Bahauddin Zakariya University, you are impressed by its lush green surroundings spread over acres of land. But you are simply amazed when you go around the different faculties and find an almost equal number of girl students moving around in the corridors of their respective departments. It is tremendously encouraging to see so many girls going for higher education in a highly conservative society like this. The number of total female students in this university is about 3,500 as against about 4,800 male, which is undoubtedly remarkable.
