A third-year student at Bahawalpur’s Government Sadiq Egerton College on Wednesday (March 20) stabbed his Associate professor Khalid Hameed to death for organising a mixed-gender reception at the institution, police said.
“The professor had organised a gender mix reception for the new students and the event was supposed to take place tomorrow, on Thursday,” police official said. According to the report registered with the police, the student had shouted that he killed the professor because he was “spreading obscenity”. The student alleged that the professor was ‘against Islam’ and he was organising a function for the English department’s funfair, in which girls were to dance as well.
The professor´s son Waleed Khan, told AFP, “As my father was about to step into his office, the guy attacked him with a knife, hitting him at his head and stomach,” he told AFP. “We took him to hospital but he had already died,” he said.
