It is very heartening to see the university teachers and the members of administrative staff of the universities raising their voices against the injustices meted out to them by reducing their fundings. Universities are not only the brains of a society but also its eyes and ears. However, we as a 'society have scarcely tried to consider the universities as such. Under the circumstances the government ought to give them maximum financial help and assistance. SARA KHAN, Islamabad, September 28.
