What they (almost) did to my dad today?

As we sat down to dinner and then as we were about to get up from it, my dad told us an interesting event that had happened to him today. As he approached Urdu College, he saw a bunch of students running from the college towards the other side of the road. He had to slow down because of them, and just as he did that another 20 -30 students came out of the college with sticks in their hands, and they started surrounding my dad’s car, and almost charged at him, when he sped up and drove for his life.

Now what makes me wonder is that had they simply lost their mind? Are they simply crazy? What sort of anarchic society are we living in that students in University would be now doing these sort of things.. Let me just say.. these are very scary times to be living in Pakistan!
