Body to check use of guides, guess papers
Lahore: A Committee formed by Punjab chief minister on Monday deliberated upon the
ever-increasing trend of tuition centres and guidebooks, to evolve a strategy to
curb their menacing role regarding quality education.
discussions reached a unanimous conclusion to invite representatives of tuition
centres and publishers of "get-through-guides" to seek their input before taking
a final decision.
Sources in the Punjab Higher Education Department said
that the issue regarding growing tuition culture and guidebooks surfaced during
deliberations of an earlier committee, which was constituted by the CM to
eliminate the Booti Mafia.
The sources added that realizing importance of
the issue, Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif formed a separate committee to come up
with recommendations to control the "unbridled" working of publishers of
guidebooks and working of private tuition centres/academies.
meeting decided to invite prominent publishers involved in the "business" of
guides, guess-papers and model papers and administrators of leading academies
and tuition centres to finalize suggestions and recommendations.
meeting observed that guidebooks, guess-papers and model papers etc always
proved a great hindrance in sharpening creativity among students while at the
same time these were promoting rote learning among them.
It is important
to mention here that the sale of different kinds of guess-papers and model
papers of various subjects of different classes especially matriculation and
intermediate reached in the wake of examination season every year.
meeting expressed concern that the trend of using guess-papers and model papers
was very high among students both from the government and private schools, which
needed to be controlled if could not be eliminated.
It also expressed
concern over mushrooming of tuition centres and academies with a view to
regulate their working to ensure quality education. Generally guess-papers
provide selection of a number of important questions from different exercises
and sometimes even some questions are marked as "sure shot".
academic circles are not in favour of guess-papers and guide books etc and
oppose its use by the students especially those who solely depend on such
material and do not cover their courses completely.
A participant in the
meeting said that at present there was no law to control the printing of
guidebooks and guess-papers etc, adding the government wanted to take a decision
in consultation with all the stakeholders.
The meeting was chaired by
MPA Rana Muhammad Afzal while its prominent members include MNA Saira Afzal
Tarar, Shaista Pervaiz Malik, Baela Raza Jamil, Secretary Higher Education,
Secretary Schools, Chairman Punjab Textbook Board (PTB) and Directors of
Directorate of Public Instructions (DPI) Elementary & Secondary.

One-state solution not possible: Dr Yahya
Lahore: Department of History of the Punjab University (PU) together with the
Pakistan Study Centre (PSC) arganised a seminar titled 'A peaceful resolution to
Arab-Israeli Conflict' at the varsity here on Monday. Prof Dr S Qalb-i-Abid also
participated in the seminar wherein Georgetown Scholar Imam Dr Yahya Hendi (PhD)
was the keynote speaker.
Imam Yahya traced the roots of Arab-Israel conflict
in the emotional involvement of Muslims, Christians and Jews in the region of
Palestine particularly Jerusalem. He believed that as it was a sacred place for
the three religions, it should be accessible to the whole world and should not
be confined to only one community.
He emphasised that the three basic
principles should be followed for resolving this problem. The first principle
was politics of justice, which meant that all the governments should maintain
the vision and practice of justice in all fields of life for all the
Secondly, economics of equity, which signified that the people
should be paid in accordance with what they do; ability to avail economic
opportunities and educational facilities should be provided to all. Thirdly, the
covenant of communities which ordained that rights of all the communities should
be protected without any regard to caste or creed.
Imam Yahya emphasised
that these three principles could provide bedrock for the
solution of the Arab-Israel Conflict. He then delved on the projected solutions
of the conflict. In his opinion, two states solution - Israel and Palestine -
was impractical as Palestine would be divided into two geographically, separate
areas and Israel would lie in between.
He also believed that one state
solution was also not possible in the present circumstances where Jews felt
themselves insecure as a minority and the Palestinians were highly distrustful
of the Jews.
He opined that the present US administration has launched a
peace initiative and president Obama's Cairo speech was an important break from
the past. He emphasized that Pakistan due to its geopolitical importance-along
with the OIC and the Arab League should come forward to respond to this
initiative and present a unified voice on the issue.
Dr Qalb-i-Abid gave a
historical perspective of the Palestine problem mentioning the British promise
(Balfour declaration) to create a separate Jewish state in the world, increasing
Jewish population from only thousands to millions (legally and illegally). That
after the creation of Israel in 1948, the Palestine problem became a problem not
only for the Middle East but also for the whole world. The nation
