will write an open letter to the students of his university imploring and
advising them to rise to the occasion during the election of the student unions
to prove that they can conform to the standards of the highest seat of
Qasim revealed his plan on Wednesday.
He expressed distress at the closure of the university saying he is the last
person in the university to order the closure but the volatile situation had
compelled him to take that action. "I have already talked to different student
organisations and urged them to be reasonable and not to act in any way that can
jeopardise the restoration of the student unions in the university." He also
informed that the KU intends to post educated, well-behaved and neatly attired
security wardens at the gates to manage peaceful and organised entry of the
visitors in addition to the students, teachers and the staff. The wardens will
have small kiosks with a table and a couple of chairs for the visitors to sit
and arrange their lawful entry into the campus.
University Teachers Society (KUTS) will also be involved to prepare the gradual
transfer of security responsibilities. He has talked with the Home Office and
the Governor to arrange appropriate deployment of security personnel till the KU
security takes the charge. In a related development the VC has directed the
Deans, Campus Security Advisor and Student Advisor to finalise the arrangements
for the resumption of teaching activities from Friday - both morning and evening
programmes. Public dealing, research and other activities are already under way
at the campus.
The VC has further directed all the Deans to work out a
plan for conducting extra classes, even on holidays, if necessary, in order to
make up for the loss of time on account of the suspension of classes recently.
Moreover, he has also instructed the Students Advisor to coordinate with the
students for ensuring harmony and discipline among the students. Strict
disciplinary action will be taken against students who violate the KU rules and
are found involved in activities detrimental to the peace of the campus.
Meanwhile, the Campus Security Adviser, Dr Khalid Iraqi, expressed his determination to create an environment of safety and
security in the KU to enable the normal performance of academic activities. He
urged the students to avoid the culture of confrontation and adopt negotiations.
Another official, requesting anonymity, said that unfortunately the KU
is the most 'politically polarised' university in the country and hoped that the
political parties will take pity on the students and stop their indirect
interference in the university affairs. The News
