‘If I can teach Islamiyat at UET, Imran Khan can teach fascism at GCU,’ Hafiz Saeed tells ‘snowflakes’

UNDISCLOSED LOCATION – Renowned educationist and transnational academic Hafiz Saeed has called out those condemning political scientist Imran Khan’s recent lecture at Lahore’s renowned Government College University.

Speaking exclusively to The Dependent, Saeed said university students these days are not being exposed to a wide array of ideas.

“I have taught Islamiyat at a whole host of schools, including the University of Engineering and Technology (UET) and I don’t recall that ever being a problem. Why has everyone become a snowflake these days?” asked Saeed, the founder of multinational transportation engineering firm Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

“Just as I am a connoisseur of Islamic studies, Imran Khan too is a leading intellectual and proponent of fascism. Why shouldn’t he get to teach fascism at a prestigious institute?” asked Saeed, who has also founded the educational umbrella Jamaat-ud-Dawa.

Saeed further maintained that instead of protesting against Imran Khan’s ‘much needed’ lessons, the academics should urge the GCU administration to invite the LeT and JuD CEO to deliver ‘much needed’ lectures on Islamiyat. “I feel we are increasingly forgetting the lessons of jihad,” said Saeed while talking to The Dependent.

He added that as an academic and student of art he appreciated the popularity of fascism courses, but unfortunately jihadism is being ignored since it is no longer considered a financially lucrative profession.

“Unfortunately, humanities such as jihadism are suffering,” he maintained.
“And this is owing to the administrative task forces urging financial action at institutions.”
