Students Hold Rally Against FCR
PESHAWAR, 10 January: A rally against the British-era law FCR was taken out by Afridi Students Union (ASU) here on Tuesday.
The rally started from the Government College of Technology on Kohat road and after marching through different routes culminated near the Peshawar press club.
The participants of the rally gathered outside the press club and held a protest demonstration against the FCR. They called the regulation a draconian law and asked the government to abolish it without wasting any further time.
Demanding basic amenities of life for the people of Fata, the protesting students asked the government to introduce reforms in Fata in accordance with the aspirations of the tribesmen.
They also demanded of the government to repatriate all the displaced people to their homes with respect and grace.
Later, talking to TNN, ASU president Muhammad Fayaz Afridi said that FCR was one of the major impediments in the development of the Fata.
“Our demands are genuine and constitutional. We only demand the system which is in practice all over the country. We do not want to live under the FCR anymore. It is a black draconian law. It should be repealed at the earliest,” he remarked.
