Postponement of KU meeting
Karachi: The Karachi University Teachers Society (KUTS) had recently
demanded the postponement of the KU senate meeting, initially planned for
December 24, ostensibly because college teachers were not represented. The
demand, however, seems to have fizzled out after the move was opposed as being
irrelevant, uncalled for and without any precedence, by a majority of deans,
senior teachers, the officers' association and even the vice-chancellor
KU VC Prof. Pirzada Qasim minced no words and said that it was not
possible to postpone the meeting because holding it on time was essential for
the university. He expressed surprise at the KUTS' objection over the absence of
the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) at the meeting. Prof.
Qasim said that senate meetings have been held sans SPLA members in the past,
but KUTS office-bearers, including the current president, had never objected to
it. "The senate meeting can only be postponed if the chancellor is unable to
attend it and wants to postpone it," he said.
Faculty of Science Dean Dr
Shahana Urooj Kazmi also expressed surprise at the KUTS demand, and said that it
lacked concrete reasoning. A reliable source at the university, while requesting
anonymity said that the deans of Arts and Pharmacy were also on board
in holding the meeting as per schedule.
Former Department of Pharmacology
chairman, Dr Rafeeq Alam Khan, said that the KUTS demand was "politically
motivated", and alleged that the current KUTS office-bearers were pressuring the
VC in order to "get some lucrative deals for themselves". He claimed that they
wanted to "make the hay while the sun shone" but the VC had "thankfully not
capitulated" to this demand. "How can they claim to represent the KU teachers?
They do not have any agenda except personal vendettas; they forget that moral
uprightness should be the hallmark of a teacher," he maintained.
KUTS secretary Dr Shakeel Farooqui claimed that the current KUTS office-bearers
had received the votes of only 175 teachers, out of a total of 600. "Last year,
KUTS had been pressuring the administration to hold the meeting of the statutory
bodies, and now they are demanding that the meeting be postponed. This is
tantamount to throwing their own efforts down the drain. This step of theirs is
incomprehensible. Such pressure tactics will not serve the teachers; on the
contrary, it will provide an opportunity to the administration to hide its
weaknesses," he remarked.
In a related development, the Sindh Teachers
Forum (STF) has also expressed strong reservations at what they have referred to
as the "unnecessary and politically immature demand" made by the KUTS. The STF
has urged the VC to hold the senate meeting as planned.
University Officers Welfare Association (KUOWA) President Muhammad Tahir Khan,
has also appealed to the VC to hold the meeting according to the schedule. He
reminded the VC that at the last meeting, the Senate had decided to meet twice a
year. Khan also pointed out that more than 3,000 non-teaching staff and officers
have no representation in KU Senate or Syndicate.
In the meantime, the
KUTS held an emergency meeting on Monday and passed one resolution each about
the Senate meeting and the affairs of the Professional Development Centre (PDC).
KUTS Secretary Dr Fayyaz Vaid said that the KUTS had demanded that the
KU Senate meeting be postponed till the completion of the SPLA election process.
"If the KU administration fails to heed to our demand we will protest from all
possible forums available to us," Dr Vaid said.
The KUTS also expressed
strong reservations on the appointment of Dr Shakeel Farooqui as the PDC

Neurological degradation research
Karachi: University of Karachi (KU) Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof. Pirzada
Qasim has reiterated his aim to establish a state-of-the-art facility in the
university to research degenerative diseases caused by the degradation of the
neurological functions of the brain.
Qasim, a neurological physiologist
by training, revealed his plan after the conclusion of
the inaugural session of the "First National Patch Clamp Workshop: The Nobel
Prize ˝winning Technique", which was held at the auditorium of the KU
International Centre for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS) on Monday.
The workshop is jointly organised by Dr Panjwani Center for Molecular
Medicine and Drug Research (PCMD), KU, and COMSTECH under the supervision of
Prof Dr Kaneez Fatima Shad, who is an expert in patch clamp techniques. Renowned
patch clamp experts, Dr Andrew J Moorhouse from Australia, Prof Dr Frances A.
Edwards from University College of London (UCL), UK, and Prof Dr Kaneez Fatima
Shad from PCMD, are training aspiring research scientists from Karach and other
cities of Pakistan.
Qasim explained that a degenerative disease is one in
which the function or structure of the affected tissues or organs will
progressively deteriorate over time, whether due to normal bodily wear or
lifestyle choices, such as exercise or eating habits. "The bank will acquire the
brains of dead people with degenerative diseases, and whose bodies remain
unclaimed. We will preserve such human brain specimens in the bank, and research
will be conducted by the eminent neurologists to find out the cure for the brain
diseases," he added.
Earlier, speaking to the scientists, Qasim said
that while a laboratory could have the best available equipment and facilities,
"real research" emanated from the research environment. He welcomed some KU
alumni who have joined PCMD, and hoped others who have left the country will
Edwards explained that the patch clamp technique is a
laboratory technique in electrophysiology which allows the study of single or
multiple ion channels in cells. Moorhouse offered insight into the patch
