Numerous female students at the University of Balochistan have been reportedly hospitalized after drinking contaminated water from the hostel.

This alarming health crisis underlines the continued struggles that the institution faces. From unpaid salaries to insufficient facilities, and frequent disruptive protests, the university has been grappling with severe administrative and operational challenges.

The response from the administration, or lack thereof, has exacerbated the distress of students and faculty alike. The recent crisis concerning water contamination has led to an outcry from the students residing in the hostel, who are demanding immediate action from the authorities.

The University of Balochistan is no stranger to controversies and problems. Over the past years, issues such as unpaid salaries have led to teachers protesting on the streets and intermittent shutdowns of the university. This has resulted in a disrupted educational process, causing further frustration among students and staff.

Moreover, the presence of security forces on campus has added an unusual and uncomfortable dynamic to the educational environment, raising questions about the administration’s ability to provide a conducive atmosphere for learning and growth.

Incidents of student protests have also marked the university’s recent history. Protests erupted over enforced disappearances of students, leading to closures and suspensions of academic activities. Despite such crises, the university administration has been perceived as inadequate in its response, leading to increased dissatisfaction and mistrust.

The university’s ongoing struggles are seen in the broader context of Balochistan’s struggles. Despite being a resource-rich region, it often faces neglect and underdevelopment, impacting key sectors, including education.

This latest health crisis underscores the urgent need for systemic change within the university. Students and concerned citizens alike are calling for swift and decisive action from both the university authorities and relevant governmental bodies.
