Dr. Usman Anwar, the Inspector General of Punjab, has made it clear that educational institutions, including schools, colleges, and universities in all cities of the province, will remain open

Dr. Usman Anwar, the Inspector General of Punjab, has emphatically stated that schools, colleges, and universities in all cities of the province will not be closed. His response comes amid prevailing uncertainty regarding the status of educational institutions in the region. Reports circulating on social media and certain news outlets suggested the possibility of educational institutions shutting down from January 25 to January 29, 2024, citing a security threat.

Contrary to these reports, IG Punjab has refuted the claims, asserting that there is no security threat. Dr. Usman Anwar assured that all educational institutions will continue their regular operations. From the provincial capital, he clarified that no official order has been issued to close any school or college in the province.

In the aftermath of the IG’s statement, students in various cities across the province, including Lahore, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, and Faisalabad, can expect classes to proceed as scheduled.

Dr. Usman Anwar denounced the circulating news about the closure of educational institutes as false and expressed his disapproval of the misuse of online platforms for spreading unfounded rumors. The Inspector General cautioned that legal action would be taken against those found spreading misinformation on social media platforms.
