Rawalpindi, Aug 24: Deputy Secretary General of Wafaqul
Madaris al-Arabia Pakistan Maulana Qazi Abdul Rashid while condemning
continued acts of blasphemy on Facebook, has demanded a complete ban on
In a statement, he said if the government can ban the
electronic media for airing news going against the president then why it
does not permanently ban Facebook for displaying blasphemous
caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
"Is the dignity
of the president was higher than that of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon
him). If not, then the government needs to show its inclination towards
Islam and block this website permanently," Maulana Abdul Rashid said.
He said that ongoing catastrophes in the country were a clear signal of
Almighty Allah's anger.
He urged the rulers to adopt a strong stance
and quit diplomatic and trade relations with countries involved in this
heinous crime. Pointing towards the decision of a US citizen to torch a
copy of the Holy Qur'aan on the eve of 9/11 anniversary, he said that
the government should protest it and demand action against the plotter.
He warned the US and European countries to stop playing with the
emotions of Muslims otherwise it would lead to clash of civilisations. The news
"I agree full with wafaq ul madaris. Our prophet is the most important person to us and we can not bear and support his indiginity and disgrace. Being muslims we should all hold protest against facebook on even allowing such pages just deleting them is not enough. They should never allow such pages to show up. They have very cleverly done this sinful act and then appoligized this is no excuse"

Floods destroy two campuses
Islamabad: Two universities campuses have been severely hit by the flood in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Farmanullah Anjam, HEC director in KP said that over 70 per cent
infrastructure of the Benazir Bhutto Shaheed University in Sheringal,
Upper Dir, had been devastated.
The second higher education
institution damaged in the province is the Malakand University in
Chakdara. At present, there is no road access to the university. Mr
Anjam put the enrolment of the two universities at around 10,000.
"In the absence of classrooms and infrastructure, our immediate
challenge is how to ensure continuity of their classes for which HEC has
already initiated deliberations," Mr Anjam said.
of Malakand division were yet to recover from the repercussions of the
military operation, and only with the help of USAID the HEC was able to
bear their education costs. After military operation, the government had
waved off tuition fee of all students from the area.
HEC being already in serious financial crisis I really don't know what
is going to happen to the universities because we are facing a shortage
of funds even to meet our recurring expenditures," Mr Anjam said.
He said the people of Malakand division had to suffer losses as a
result of military operation against Taliban and the flood had destroyed
the standing crops.
The HEC official said a special committee
had been formed to collect data about university students in
flood-affected areas in the four provinces.
"Since people in
the flood-affected areas have lost everything, their crops and
businesses will not be in position support their youths studying in
universities," the official said.
He said at present he was not in a position to say how the commission would be helping students from the affected areas. Dawn

QASMS aimed at revenue generation: QAU spokesman
Islamabad: The basic purpose of establishment of QASMS is to
brainstorming the students and to generate revenue, said Nadeem Yasir,
spokesman for QAU. "QAU is a public sector
university and so for earning money of its own, but now it is not
possible for it to generate revenue of its own as it spends a lot on
students and teachers especially for their Ph D programme," he said.
Yasir said with a rapid decline in academic standard of MBA department,
where mostly faculty members were visiting lecturer, QAU administration
planned to establish QASMS taking HEC and IPDF (Ministry of Finance),
and all faculty members including ASA of QAU on board. "With a lot of
institutions on board, how could ASA feared non-transparency in
establishment of QASMS," he said, adding QAU administration had never
taken any decision without consensus and it would never do this.
spokesman said whenever QAU administration floated an idea of expansion
of the university setup and management; ASA jumped quickly into it
reacting against the proposals for no reasons, instead of helping QAU
out and give positive suggestions. "If QASMS would be established, the
members of ASA feared that their identity and individuality in the
campus would decrease with arrival of new faculty members in QASMS,"
sources concluded. Daily times
