CRship, something which has been referred to as the phenomenon of power – has been abused in our class in the past. Although I got the better half of that, because Ali Tariq, the then CR was my friend. But things started to get complicated.
Let’s go back in time and remember what happened in Semester 1. I was the one person everyone liked, because I was nice to everyone (I try to be, so it just happens). The class just began, nobody knew anyone, but I tried communication.
I left my first school Old Ravians Public School (Shamnagar) when I was in sixth grade. And from that time till 2013, I never studied in a co-education institution. My second school was just for boys and so was Govt. MAO College at intermediate level.
I knew I didn’t had a lot of events at schools or colleges. I wanted to fill in that gap. I wanted to increase my potential. I was shy, so I started to talk to people. Conversations started happening and I made friends. Haseeb Ahmad and several others asked me to become the CR of the class but I didn’t wanted to. Even though I would’ve liked it as it felt like a privilege at that time, but I was still shy.
I was confused, and at that moment of confusion, Ali Tariq asked me not to stand up as a candidate for the seat of class representative as he wanted to be the CR himself. I accepted his request. But then Ali Tariq chose not to stand up as a candidate. Why?
I heard from Ali Tariq that he received a phone call from Ali Jan Bukhari (another classmate at that time), and that Ali Jan Bukhari was requesting him to let ‘him’ be the class monitor and Ali Tariq backed off on his request.
What happened with Ali Jan Bukhari’s career as the CR of our class is uninteresting and boring so I’ll choose to skip that part. What happened after that is that Ali Jan Bukhari had to forfeit from his post on Mam Saira’s pressure in 2nd or maybe 3rd semester (very wise decision).
I was stylized overall as the “Mr. Nice Guy” while Ali Tariq was more connected with the power group (at that time, their was a specific group of Farzan Shehzad, Ali Tariq, Hasseeb*, Ehsan Ullah, Maryam Umer Farooq, Nimra Hafeez, Saima Abdul Rasheed, Rabia Zafar, Seemaab Amjad and Beenish Choudhary which was really in power at that time because they were connected to each other). They were the ones who started the campaign for the removal of Ali Jan Bukhari while my current friends wanted him to remain the CR. Me? I was confused. Ali Jan Bukhari was not my friend but I couldn’t do it to someone. People in Ali Tariq’s group were my friends and so were the people who were still supporting Ali Jan Bukhari. Beenish came to me and asked me to help them and support their cause and speak against the CR and I literally shouted in the class. Everyone was looking at me. I don’t remember what I said but maybe it was something like “what the heck has the CR one wrong?” I chose not to take sides and when Ali Jan Bukhari was finally getting removed, Farzan came to me and said that they wanted me to make the CR but they think it is not an appropriate task for me as I am really nice and it is a messy world out there (…and so on and so forth), so they are choosing Ali Tariq. I told him that it was fine by me.
But, over the time Ali Tariq started having problems with his friends. The once power-group tore into pieces. Hasseeb and Ali Tariq started a rivalry. Don’t ask me anything about Farzan as I didn’t wanted to make him a piece of my writing in the first place.
What really happened after that is not easy for me to write. I don’t want to ruin the current reputation of our class by citing history again. It wasn’t the whole class and it wasn’t the whole group.
By the way, Ma’am Saira was replaced with Sir. Abid Tahami from the post of “Head of Dept.” and the new H.O.D. started examining the situation.
Everyone knew CR was going to change. A lot of classmates asked me to become the new CR. I didn’t had ANY interest whatsoever apart from taking the responsibility because I was sick of the way the current CR was dealing with the division in our class. Ali Tariq instead of solving issues, used to flame the fights, instead of resolving them. He failed to be neutral, his activities with B.S. Psychology are well known and if it wasn’t enough, he used to initiate a lot of problems.
Sir Abid Tahami made an excellent decision. He made Haseeb Ahmed the CR of our class. He is, perhaps the most respected student in our class. I’m saying this because I respect him. We wanted to make him a CR but he used to defer the possibility too.
But since H.O.D. commanded him and Nimra Hafeez to take the responsibilities of CR and GR respectively, Haseeb Ahmed had no choice.
Soon after he became the CR, problems started solving.
