STAFF REPORT RWP: The Pir Mehr Ali Shah Arid Agriculture University Rawalpindi has imposed a ban on the use of social media on the campus. However, the students termed this decision unjustified and demanded that the ban should be lifted.

Earlier, the students were allowed to use Facebook and Twitter through the universitys WI-Fi and servers. However, the popular social networking services blocked later.

“Through social media we used to keep ourselves updated about the activities of our friends. But we have no idea why it has been banned,” said a female student.

An official of the university said that Facebook and Twitter have been blocked after complaints by girl students. “In advanced countries, students are allowed to use the social media in classrooms but here we even cant use it in the cafeteria,” he said.
