LUMS Is Trending On Pakistani Twitter For All The Wrong Reasons And Here’s Why

The top business school becomes news once again.

LUMS -university

Recently, Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), which is considered the top business school in the country, tweeted out that not all students and staff who go there are elitist.

Understandably, a lot of people had opinions regarding that statement and soon enough there was a debate.

One particular concern regarding LUMS students kept popping up – “how is arrogance and that ‘better than tho’ attitude not elitist?”

It is important to understand what people mean when they use the term ‘elitist.’ The term isn’t just limited to people who boast about money. It’s just the idea that ‘a select group of people‘ are better than the rest. In this case, LUMS students.

A Poor Example

This one student, who claims he’s from LUMS, decided to take matters into his own hands and tell off people criticizing his alma mater online:

Needless to say, he made matters worse by handling the criticism very poorly (and sourly).

Pretty soon, Twitterati started to take digs at him. As a result, LUMS started trending on Pakistani Twitter.

Netizens got to calling out ‘where did this idea come from’ that LUMS alums are better than the rest?

Even social media personalities like Farhan Virk had to pitch in (guess he took some time out from political issues).

Then this guy stole the show.

If you’re going to make your point by using expletives, you might as well give up.

Meanwhile LUMS alums are disowning this guy (bhai kon ho, hum ni jantay):


We all remember the LUMS private Facebook group fiasco.

If the university is better in terms of education, this guy is not a prime example. Sure there are a few bad eggs in every group, but ‘intellect’ is called intellect for a reason.

This also sparked a University war……. (not cool guys).

Do you believe that LUMS has allowed its students to cultivate this opinion based on something they did? Sound off in the comments below.


  1. I want to say one thing if the students on Lums are selected on the basis of intellect honour integrity neutrality quality and academic greatness then with this humble confidence students can achieve greatness because emotional intelligence is required to succeed which is hard to find in middle class but middle class is hard working and intelligent which unfortunately the upper class is not they are not hardworking and not intelligent enough they are endorsing we are rich and live like rich policy but they have emotional intelligence which is of no use because they will never work hard nor will they ever succeed in life ever except that they will enjoy their money
