Balochistan University Teachers threaten hunger strike

Queta, April 5, 2008: Teachers of the Balochistan University, whose services were terminated after the promulgation of the controversial Model University Ordinance by the former governor, have demanded their reinstatement within a week and threatened to go on hunger strike from April 10 if their demand is not met.

Addressing a press conference here on Friday, Prof Dr Agha Mohammad Nasir and Prof Zakir Hussain Jadoon said they would initially observe a token hunger strike from April 7.

They alleged that they had been sacked because of their protests against the ordinance. They said that opposition parties had submitted a resolution in the Balochistan Assembly but the session could not be held, reportedly because of 'lack of quorum' on the advice of the former governor.

They said that when the teachers started speaking against the ordinance, the vice-chancellor and the university administration threatened them with sacking.

They said Prof Dr Agha Mohammad Nasir, of the Urdu department, had been fired by the vice-chancellor who claimed his doctoral degree was fake.

The Quran Conference at IUB
Bahawalpur: A three-day national Quran conference opened at the Abbasia Campus of the Islamia University of Bahawalpur (IUB) here on Friday.

In his inaugural address at the conference organised by the Faculty of Islamic Learning, IUB Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Belal A Khan urged the academia to play its role to steer the nation out of the prevailing turmoil. He said the social condition of the Islamic world was characterised with educational backwardness, widespread poverty, lawlessness and austerity, a lack of democracy and inattention to Islamic laws. He said Muslims needed a dynamic and inspiring leadership and commitment to come out of the prevailing situation.

Prof Dr Mehmoodul Hassan Arif, president of Punjab University's Idara-e-Muarif, said in his paper entitled "Quran Translation" that the first-ever translation of the Holy Quran was accomplished in 3 A.H. in Sindhi language. In the subcontinent, the first-ever translation of the Holy Quran was done in Persian language in 18th century, he said, adding that about 700 translations had been recorded in Urdu language up till now.
