Atta wants more funds for education
Hyderabad: Former chairman of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) Prof Dr
Atta-ur-Rehman has said solution to many problems of Pakistan lies in
development of education and allocating maximum funds for this sector.
He was speaking as chief guest at the inauguration of the three-day 29th
Congress of Zoology International organised by the Department of Zoology,
University of Sindh, on Tuesday. Scholars and zoologists from the universities
of Pakistan, Iran and Bangladesh are attending the congress.
said the defence of a country does not depend on construction of roads, dams or
buildings but a country can be defended through its educational system. He said
during the last six years the system of education has changed and witnessed many
reforms in higher education.
He said Pakistan is investing very low
percentage of its GNP on overall education - 1.9 per cent - which is not enough
for the development of education.
Dr Atta said there is a difference
between college and university education. He added that college education's
responsibility lies on the students while a university has big responsibility
and is judged on its ability to create new knowledge by producing persons who
are job creators, not job seekers.
Referring to three universities of
the Asia region, he said he had the opportunity of witnessing the convocation of
Chinwag University of China, where in a single year 1,100 students received PhD
degrees while its total enrolment was 33,000 and production of 1,100 PhD was
normal. The second was National University of Singapore which ranked 19th in
world universities and its normal budget was $800 million and the Institute of
Information Technology, Delhi, established in the 60s, had produced 3,000 PhD
scholars in Science and Technology during the last 25 years. He regretted "our
all Science and Technology universities have produced only 6 PhD scholars during
the last 60 years."
He said the universities are judged from their
faculty and a good university has a ratio of 15-1 students-teacher. He added
that during the chairmanship of the HEC his entire efforts were dedicated to
faculty development to send them aboard for PhD so that they come back and serve
their universities better.
He said during his tenure 4,000 scholars had
been sent abroad who were selected from among 20 to 25,000 candidates, adding
that 300 scholars had returned after completing PhD. žIt is now our job to make
sure to provide good environment to them.
He said during the last six
years enrolment in the universities has more than doubled. He said now-a-days a
culture of research has developed and digital library system is available with
25,000 research journals and 45,000 ebooks which is hardly available to the US
and EU universities.
He said a 4-year degree programme was introduced in
the universities and all reforms introduced by the HEC were implemented by the
Sindh University first among all public-sector universities. He said whatever
the problems of the country these days they can be resolved only through
He said now the country has overcome financial crisis and
expressed the hope that the announcement of the prime minister about
availability of funds to the universities would be materialised. The News
Funds for HEC to support scholars stressed
Islamabad: The Senate Standing Committee on Labour, Manpower and
Overseas Pakistanis has asked the government to ensure provision of funds to the

The meeting asked the education minister to address the issue of

God and science
The religious zealots have hijacked our politics. They are gleefully dragging
the nation towards a medieval era using Islam as a slogan for their puritanism.
We know one cause of decline of the Islamic civilization was mixing of religion
with politics. But an even more important reason for our historical decline has
been the false belief of the Muslim clerics that anything modern is essentially
unIslamic. Let me quote the following examples:
1. Sir Syed Ahmed Khan's
epic struggle for educating the Muslim masses was strongly opposed by mullahs
who believed that English language was inherently unIslamic. They refused to
believe that all languages were created by Allah whose innumerable prophets
delivered His divine message in innumerable languages.
2. Modern gadgets
like loudspeakers, cameras and radio were all deemed satanic by clerics about 50
3. The printing press was initially banned by the Ottoman Empire.
Their guild of writers declared it was 'devil's invention'. Subsequently, they
allowed it with the condition that printing would be allowed only in Hebrew.
4. TV Channel 4 in UK recently showed a copy of Holy Quran in Venice,
printed 500 years ago. They reported that this is perhaps the last and only copy
left, because the Muslim clerics of that era refused to accept mechanically
printed version of their holy book.
The following major events can be
considered as 'milestones' in our disastrous journey towards regression,
degeneration and decay:
1. In 1258 AD. Muslims failed to protect their
treasure of knowledge when Baghdad was ransacked by the Mongols.
1492 AD. Muslims failed to protect Spain from the Europeans who were culturally
still living in dark ages. This was the time when Columbus discovered America
that provided vast natural resources to the Europeans.
3. 18th & 19th
Century. Ottomans and other Muslim nations snubbed the industrial revolution and
considered modern science as anti-God.
Our apathy towards science is based
on the fallacy that the sciences are in competition with God. In fact, all laws
of science are Allah's creation. Man is only trying to understand the divine
laws of nature. Need one say that it is the neglecting of sciences that is
unIslamic? -Khalid A., London, UK, via e-mail, The Nation
