TIP wins IBA Inter-university Debate Competition

Sidrah Waseem (TD1) and Nida Aleem (TS4) have brought the trophy home from IBA’s yearly Inter-university Debate Competition 2004. TIP’s domination at the debate shined through the moment Sidrah and Nida stepped up on stage.

The other participating universities were Sir Syed, Greenwhich, and IBA. A boy from Sir Syed received first prize for his substantial argument opposing the topic, ‘A strong dictatorship is better than a weak democracy’. Sidrah received second prize for a brilliant pro-democracy argument that strongly appealed to the lofty ideals of freedom and the right to choose, the right to be democratic. Nida received third prize pro-dictatorship.

  1. Ohh wow, congratulations Nida and Sidrah. So there are some debaters in this batch as well. That’s really good.

  2. That lady, Nida Aleem always had the spark when she went on stage..I have seen SIdrah talking once..she seems to be gud in english too..now the real thing about their achievement is..that they performed against the audience totall unknown to them and thaz the BIG thing..you can perform against people you know..but to perform in front of the listners that are totally new to u..Well done Sidra and hats off for Nida..

  3. Well done!!!!!
    Great news from TIP…Wish everyone best of luck and I hope everyone follows the path set by these two,..
    Congrats,, again,…

  4. Congratulations to Nida and Sidra for such a great performance.
    We all need to realize one fact at this particular moment. Sidra first of all has a great fluency in English and secondly Nida is a quiet experienced debator. The thing which is missing in the entire scene is the TIP’s in house preparations before participating in any competition. I found this particular flaw in my first year when I and Samreen went to participate in a competition organized by British Council and English Speaking Union on the topic “Ecology and Economy”. Although we had entire two weeks available for preparations but they were not utilized. The only support was given by Abid who provided us with some very relevant data on the topic. I was actually made to alter my entire debate on the day of competition. The result was very clear we lost that competition as other institutions were really well supported by their faculty and students.
    We should form a realistic debate preparation committee for any further competitions.
    Thank You.
