Pakistan:
University’s musicology department threatened by student’s organisation

The musicology department at the National College of Arts at Punjab University in Lahore has moved out of the university after threats with ‘dire consequences’, reported Newsline.

Head of the musicology department at the National College of Arts at Punjab University in Lahore, Sarwat Ali, told Newsline that “while it is true that there is a department of musicology at the Punjab University, since the last two years, you will be surprised to know we have not been able to hold classes on the university premises because an Islamic student’s organisation has threatened us with dire consequences. So, we are operating from the Al-Hamra Cultural Complex.”
