Students at a declamation contest said that free access and improper use of information technology tools was the main cause of society’s degradation in the country, said a University of Peshawar (UoP) press release.
Department of Political Science arranged the contest to mark its golden jubilee celebration. Students were given two topics: “West is responsible for all our ills” and, “the existence of women in universe is precursor of colour on planet” in English and Urdu, respectively.
In Urdu contest, Irum Khan stood first, Waqar Ali Shah second and Naila third. Saeed clinched top position in English debate, while Sameera and Sidra grabbed second and third position, respectively.
While girl students focused on the role of women in shaping behaviour of family, the boys said that increase in interest for cosmetic value of life among women was a consequence of free access to IT tools, which had kept them from their role as ideal mothers and wives.
