Doctors seek UK's role to save KEMU
Lahore: Young Doctors Association, which is seeking appointment of the senior-most professor as vice chancellor of King Edward Medical University and restoration of King Edward Medical College within the university, has written letters to UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, United Nation's Special Envoy for Global Education, members of the House of Lords (UK), the Amnesty International, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and PML(N) leader's daughter Mariam Nawaz.

In coming 10 days, the KEMU chapter of the Young Doctors Association will meet Shahbaz Sharif, Nawaz Sharif and other political figures of the province to highlight administrative irregularities committed by the present acting vice chancellor of KEMU.

These views were expressed by the Young Kemcolian Forum, young doctors in KEMU and old graduates of King Edward Medical College, including Dr Rana Sohail, Dr Salman Kazmi, Dr Talha Sherwani, Dr Aslam Rao, Dr Zahid Wazir, Dr Khuda Baksh Dreshak, Dr Sufian and Dr Khawar. They were addressing a press briefing on Thursday. They said that the present VC has destroyed the institution. "It's really sad that even 10 months after the passage of orders of Supreme Court of Pakistan, no VC has been appointed at both medical universities of Punjab," they said.

They also appealed to Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to save King Edward Medical College and appoint its VC on the basis of seniority and purely on merit. It is worth mentioning that Lahore High Court has asked the sitting VC not to use the title of vice chancellor, but he is continuously using that title. Daily times

Malala asks govt to retain old name of Saidu college
Peshawar: Malala Yusufzai has asked the government to change the name of a degree college in Saidu Sharif back to its original name and allay fears and sense of insecurity amongst the nearly two thousands girls studying there.

The request by the young icon of the right of girls to seek education came amid protests by students of Saidu Sharif Degree College for Girls over naming of the institution after Malala Yusufzai, fearing this could invite trouble and threats from the militants in the once-troubled Swat district.

"She called me last week and asked that the name of the college be changed and reverted back to its original name or any other name except her," Swat District Coordination Officer Kamran Rehman Khan told Dawn.

Eighteen hundred students of what is now Malala Degree College for Girls went on protest after the government named the college after the defiant girl, shot in the head by militants in October.

The girls fear that renaming of the college after Malala could put their lives at risk as well as their institution at the hands of the unforgiving militants.

"The protesters were not against Malala but they feared that naming of the college could pose a serious security threat to them as well as their institution," the official said.

He said that Malala called to request that the name of the college be reverted back to what it was and understood that it could pose a threat to the students and the institution. She asked that her name be removed.

"I think it was very good of her," the DCO remarked. "There was no threat to the college but she understood the girls' unease and sense of insecurity," he added.

He said that Malala sounded well and said that she was recovering well. He also spoke to her father, Ziauddin Yusufzai, who endorsed his daughter's views on changing the name of the college.

The DCO said that he had sent a written report to the provincial government based on Malala's own request. "It is now for the government to decide whether it wants to stick to its decision or let the old name be restored," Mr Khan said. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti had named the Saidu Sharif Degree College for Girls after Malala following the attempt on her life in her hometown. She is undergoing treatment at a hospital in UK. Dawn

Dr Noorul Iman made new principal of KMC
Peshawar: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government on Thursday appointed noted physician Prof Dr Noorul Iman as principal of the Khyber Medical College (KMC).

He was serving as special secretary health in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He replaced prominent physician and widely respected teacher, Prof Dr Sultan Mahmood, who retired after reaching the age of superannuation.

Prof Liaqat Ali, the senior most faculty member, was serving as acting principal of the college after Dr Sultan Mahmood's retirement.

Senior government officials said the provincial health department had sent a summary to Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan Hoti to nominate one from a list of four candidates as principal of the oldest medical college of the province.

In the list were the names of Prof Dr Liaqat Ali, head of pathology department KMC, Prof Dr Noorul Iman, head of medical 'D' ward Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH) and KMC, Prof Dr Ijaz Hasan Khattak, pathology department, and Prof Dr Azar Rasheed, head of dermatology department KTH and KMC.

According to sources, Prof Dr Nargis Parveen, head of physiology department KMC, was senior even to Prof Dr Liaqat Ali, but she reportedly declined to join the race for getting the coveted post.

She had once served as principal of the college but certain serious problems arose in the college during her tenure, she also faced an inquiry of corruption charges at the time.

According to sources, some of the contenders maneuvered and used political contacts to obtain the principal's position. Dr Noorul Iman would be the youngest principal at the KMC. Like most of his predecessors, he would serve as principal at the college where he studied as a student during 1980s.

In 1986 he did his graduation from KMC and then went to Ireland where he did MRCP in 1991. He also did FRCP from Ireland and Edinburgh, and is Fellow of European Board of gastroenterology.

He joined the Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH) as senior registrar in July 1993. He was promoted as professor in 2008. He has published more than 50 research papers in international medical journals. Apart from teaching and his work as a busy clinician, Dr Noorul Iman has written two books for medical students and remained chief editor of KMC journal.

In 2010, the KP government appointed him as special secretary health, a position that earned him more foes than friends. Some senior teachers in KMC welcomed his appointment as principal and hoped he would play his role in up-gradation of the college.

Prof Dr Mohammad Humayun Khan, a senior teacher of KTH/KMC, said that, "Dr Noor is an energetic person and has the best administrative qualities required for running an important institution like KMC."

Another senior doctor in the same institution pleading anonymity described him as a self-made man. "He established himself without any support of others and faced numerous challenges during his previous job of special secretary health. He handled all the crises in a successful manner and even saved the lethargic health minister from troubles while running his ministry," he said.

Dr Noorul Iman could also face opposition from some faculty members in KMC who strongly opposed his nomination as principal by arguing that he was 19th on the seniority list and, therefore, did not deserve to become principal. The KMC teachers' association had also pleaded for appointment of a senior faculty member from KMC as the principal. The news
