VideoNation: Pakistan, the Intersection

In The Nation’s VideoNation, two videos on Pakistan, one on the country through the eyes of students at the liberal National College of Arts and the other through the eyes of some students at Punjab University who are also members of the IJT, the student wing of the Jamaat-e-Islami.

The second part on Punjab University can be found here. (You can see a poster of Eqbal Ahmad, my late mentor and ardent, progressive champion of tolerance, democracy, and openness in Pakistan, in the background of one of the scenes with dissenters in Punjab University. The scene also has a heartening image of literature as a bulwark of human decency.)
