Signed by a section officer, the letter says that “it has been pointed by various security agencies that Research Topics being given to the students in the universities of the Punjab were anti-Pakistan and anti-cultural in nature”.

It goes on to say that the “Competent Authority has taken a serious notice of this situation” and “desired that the Academia” should play a “constructive role in nurturing nationalism”.
