FC College students allowed to wear 'civvies'

Lahore: Forman Christian (FC) College administration has decided to eliminate the condition of wearing uniform, official sources said on Thursday. Some of the teachers and students have denounced the decision – expected to be made public in a few days – saying that it would cause inferiority complex among students, while others believe that it would help build confidence. Sources said that students would be allowed to wear casual clothes, but after establishing certain parameters. They said that the faculty members had suggested that female students wear gowns over their casual wear in order to represent themselves as part of the university.

Financial burden or confidence builder: Assistant Professor of Political Science Shakeela Noor said that allowing students to wear casuals might create psychological problems for students. "Even the financially weak students will have to come to college in new clothes every day in order to fit in with others, which could pose financial burden on their families," she said. "Uniform keeps decorum in an educational institution." Professor Rahat Shafiq of the English Department welcomed the decision and said that allowing students to come to college in casual wear would build confidence in students and increase their ability to express themselves in sociable environment. "The new dress code will give them more freedom and enhance their maturity level, but there will be rules like wearing gowns," she said. "On the other hand, many parents and college alumni have opposed the changing traditions of the institute, which had been followed for ages," sources said. Nawab Zada Farukh Ali Khan, an old Formanite, said that traditions schools should not change their traditions but preserve them. Zain Riza, a graduating student, said that the change in the policy was a pleasant step made for the better grooming of the students.
