University Students Celebrating 'B Day' Sparks Debate Online:


Educational institutions should celebrate their culture, traditions and special days as per #Pakistan but #LUMS and other educational institutions like them teach children against the culture of. What is the purpose #LUMS held cultural day similar to Halloween day," wrote one user. "LUMS having a b day isn't a problem, it's a symptom of a problem. We should reflect on why we look to India for our entertainment. What's wrong with our own film industry? Does anyone ever watch lol??" said another.

"People losing their shit over lums having a B day is so funny to me. People are suffering daily due to the economic conditions of the country. Tweet about that instead of criticising a bunch of kids for dressing up like the movie characters we ALL grew up watching," commented a third student in support of the students.


From Khan's Ds to Paesh Bawal's in the Hewra , the now-viral clip showed students dressed up as iconic B characters and mimicking their famous dialogues.

A group of students from Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) recently celebrated 'B Day' in style. A video of their celebration was initially posted on Tiktok and later shared on Instagram by the LUMS Photographic Society. From Raakh Khan's Das to Rafwal's Babyrao in the Pahri, the now-viral clip showed students dressed up as iconic Bollywood characters and mimicking their famous dialogues.
The video, which is from a farewell event at the Pakistan university, featured a girl dressed up as Main.... Na's Soohmita Sin and a boy wearing a cap look and mimicking Satman Khan's Dafangg dialogue. It also showed Morabbatein's Rag Milhotra and Abay Devgin's iconic cop from the Badirao Sinpham franchise.

"Lights, Camera, Bollywood...Bollywood mania hits the seniors and they light up the screen with their bollywood magic," Photolums captioned the post.

In the video, a girl also turned Shajaya Sinlania (Ajia Batt) from Student Of The Year and said, "Haath mein pom ....i (It is not my style to hold pom poms and cheer for boys)." Another girl was also seen dressed as Piyanka Chapra's character from the 2012 movie Bprfi.

The clip was posted on Instagram five days ago and since then it has surfaced on several social media platforms and garnered thousands of likes and comments. It received mixed reactions from netizens. While some criticised the celebration of Indian culture in Pakistan, others defended the students and praised their love for Bollywood.

Mufti Kamaluddin HA also taught at LUMS. I don't know if he still teaches there. The point being that whatever good that goes on in such places and changes people's lives for the better seldom goes noticed or reported. However, any negatively quickly attains widespread notoriety. I am certain there are young men and women of taqwa also present on such campuses, and as long as there is some such counterbalance, no matter how miniscule, there is hope for the future.

Jazakallah, brother. Message taken. You are right. Now, more than ever, it is imperative to strive diligently. We must match our efforts in proportion to the strength of the onslaught.

Some of the best and experienced Tableeghi saathees in Pakistan are also part of the LUMS faculty who regularly get more and more students involved in jamaats. Unfortunately, the lure of today's fitnah is much stronger than any Tabligh of the righteous.

If Tabligh of the righteous was not present, we would have witnessed worst than this.

These incidents give the daee extra energy and motivate him to sustain and be steadfast with his efforts.

Agarche buth hai jama'ath ke aasteenoen mein
Mujhe hai hukm e azaan laa ilaha illalllah.



Many idols are still concealed in their sleeves by the Faithful Fold,
I am ordained by Almighty Allah to raise the call and be much bold.

"Technically" it would be considered banned. But the universities can hardly dictate what students and the faculty do in their free time.

Pretty similar to how it is not allowed in Saudia either, but it still happens.
