Concluding the whole scenario one can say she Iqra Hameed was a victim of pure harassment, her brain was not able to handle the pressure and stress delivered on her by her faculty. It is obviously unnecessary pressure is not the key to higher achievement, the stressed mind cannot perform as the relaxed and free mind can.
The incident was posted on the Facebook page “KEEP CALM AND CONFESS DIL SE”, a University of Lahore confession page.
Justice For Iqra Hameed
The case of Iqra Hameed needs to be taken up by the Minister of Education and Federal Minister for Human Rights. Hopefully, the bullying of students by their faculty needs to be tackled by the authorities before more lives are lost.
