During the recent TISF elections, some students turned to the Quran to help them get their chosen candidates elected. This particular group of students, all from the senior classes, had one student swear upon the tawees that he will vote for their candidate. Another student was being forced to swear upon the lohae quran, but he somehow managed to avoid being taken in. Both students are hostel residents.
The group wielding the Quran initially denied the occurrence, but let it slip during a situation right after the TISF elections. The next day the situation escalated into a near fight, with the group threatening physical harm to the freshmen involved. However, when the truth of the situation came to light, everyone said ‘let bygones be bygones.’
