The recent lynching of Mashal Khan upon allegations of blasphemy must be condemned. This distressing incident should resonate with us, as students, alumni, and employees of Lahore School of Economics, for various reasons:
1. Mashal Khan was a university student.
2. The attack was conducted by his fellow-students.
3. The attack took place on-campus.
Universities should be a safe space for people to express their views and take part in fruitful debate and discussion. Dissenting views should not be silenced without fair dialogue, for they push societies towards progress, a purpose also expected to be served by universities.
By naming the recently constructed building in honour of Mashal Khan, our university will demonstrate its resistance against the usage of violent means when it comes to conflicts. While I am certain that the university is fully behind the idea of promoting a progressive environment, this act will become the tangible symbol that reflects the broader idea behind it.
