state legislature banning their use in educational
The assembly of Pakistan`s Punjab province unanimously
passed a resolution recommending a ban on the use of cell
phones within educational centres of the province which has a
population of over 90 million.
The resolution was moved yesterday by legislator Raheela
Khadim of the PML-N, which rules the province.

colleges did not take interest in lectures and remained busy
talking or sending SMSes on their mobile phones.
Besides distracting the students from their studies, the
cell phones were a "threat to their morality", she claimed.
She recommended a total ban on the use of mobile phones in
all educational institutions of Punjab.
The House unanimously adopted the resolution.
