Need for a forum for Pakistani Communist Students

I do not think that there is any need for me to elaborate on the part that students play in the political affairs of a country. They, without any reasonable doubt, play the most pivotal role. There is also no need to inquire into their roles in revolution. They are those who have to bear the duty to keep the revolution alive as the next generation.

Pakistan have seen a very steep decline in the student communist activities after the collapse of Soviet Union. This has been the trend everywhere around the golbe. The demise of the student communist activities can also be related with the US backed Islamization brought by General Zia-ul-Haq during which only the religious fundamentalist student parties (like Jamaat-e-Islami and Muslim Student Federation) flourished. Right now, there are hardly any student organizations in Pakistan propogating the socialist point of view and working for a bright socialist future of Pakistn.

I believe that the students of Pakistan are not dead. They just need a forum to get together so as to give a united vioce to their demand for the emancipation of the proletariat. Such a party is the need of the hour to help the left of Pakistan in their noble cause.
