Pakistan’s Higher Education Commission (HEC) has banned Holi celebration in universities. The order of the HEC comes days after students of quaid-i-Azam university celebrated holi on the campus on June 12 and videos of the event went viral. 

In a notice, the commission stated that students are forbidden to follow this festival in order to ‘sociocultural values.’

It further read that such activities "portray a complete disconnect from country's sociocultural values and are an erosion of the country's Islamic identity."

Notably, in March, 15 Hindu students were injured after members of a radical Islamic student organisation stopped them from celebrating Holi at the Punjab University premises.
