Lahore: LUMS to ban kissing
LAHORE: Authorities at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) have promised to abolish all public displays of affection after a student blasted another female student for giving her boyfriend a peck on the cheek during Ramzan, the Christian Science Monitor has reported. The kiss, witnessed and documented by Tajwar Tashfin Awan - and then criticised in an email to the entire university as part of her “dossier” against public displays of affection (PDA) on campus - has sparked a debate on how conservative Pakistani society should be. In light of the email, the LUMS Office of Student Affairs has promised to issue a code of conduct to ban PDAs – a measure some students have lauded, and others rolled their eyes at. The debate has pointed out the drastically different ideological directions in which youth across the country are being pulled, says Asif Akthar, the blogger who first reported the story. “I think [the debate] signifies a conflict between different cultural identities and shows there is something unresolved there,” he says. daily times monitor
