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.
