SPLA calls for regularising ad hoc lecturers

Varsity teachers allege discrimination
Hyderabad: The Sindh chapter of the Federation of All-Pakistan
Universities Academic Staff Association has accused the Higher Education
Commission of discriminating against university teachers of Sindh, and demanded
removal of all vice-chancellors who had retired from service.
federation's secretary Prof Badar Soomro said at a news conference at the press
club on Sunday that teachers of public universities in the province were facing
discrimination in promotion and award of scholarships and demanded that they be
treated like their counterparts in the Punjab and Peshawar
He said that in all hardship cases of Punjab and Peshawar
universities, the lecturers, assistant professors and associate professors who
had served for years, had been upgraded by the university authorities and the
HEC, but the university teachers of Sindh had been completely ignored.
said that 30 lecturers, 208 assistant professors and 82 associate professors of
Mehran, Sindh, Karachi, Agriculture, Quaid-i-Awam, Shah Latif and NED
universities were eligible and qualified for upgradation but they were deprived
of their rights.
He wondered why the same rule was not being applied to
the university teachers of Sindh which had been applied to the university
teachers of Peshawar and Punjab.
He rejected the argument put forth by
the HEC about unavailability of vacant posts, unavailability of foreign
scholarships and ban on promotion of non-PhD teachers when it came to teachers
He expressed fear if the university teachers were not upgraded
they would leave for greener pastures as the private sector companies and
corporations were offering huge salaries to qualified engineers.
Soomro demanded that an eminent educationist should be appointed as permanent
chairman of the HEC to solve problems of university teachers and alleged that
the acting chairman of the commission knew nothing about academic
He regretted that the scholarship of the teachers who had been
sent abroad for PhD had been stopped and demanded resumption of their
scholarships to enable them to complete their assignments.

sanctioned for 1000 teachers of Punjab, 600 for the NWFP and only 59 for
To a question about financial crisis, he said that if cuts had to
be made and they were unavoidable they should be made in the construction of
buildings and not in academic funds. Buildings without academic

Suffa University to be set up in DHA-II on Super Highway
Karachi: Around eight years ago, a charter was awarded to the Defence
Housing Authority (DHA) for building a university. This charter, however, is yet
to be utilised, even though the DHA says that it still plans to set up its own
university - not at any site at the existing DHA phases but at an altogether new
location somewhere at the upcoming DHA-II project on the Super
It could not be ascertained, however, whether the charter
awarded to the DHA for its Suffa University is still valid after the passage of
eight years or even more. Meanwhile, circles concerned in the education sector
already have serious reservations over the grant of a charter by the government
to a university that has no physical existence and is yet to commence academic
DHA Director Education Brig. (retd) Iftikhar Arshad said that
while the authority had failed to find a suitable amenity plot in the existing
phases of the DHA for establishing the university, it would now establish the
university in the DHA-II on the Super Highway as part of a much wider education
city project along with schools, colleges, and a medical complex.
that hopefully the charter awarded to the DHA many years back for the Suffa
University would be useful in setting up the university at the new
University of Karachi (KU) Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Pro-VC) Prof. Dr
Akhlaq Ahmad, who had also served as an adviser on higher education to the DHA,
said that a piece of land had been initially reserved in DHA Phase-VIII near the
Defence Authority (DA) O/A-level School for establishing the university. This
land, however, was later taken over by the DHA's Creek City Project.
Ahmad, who was especially hired by the DHA to set up its university, said that
progress on the Suffa University project stalled later despite the finalisation
of the concept due to the unavailability of a suitable piece of land. Obviously
the DHA is a housing authority that runs on commercial lines and it is difficult
to see how setting up a university would be among its priorities for a long
period of time, he said.
Higher Education Commission (HEC) Executive
Director Dr Sohail H Naqvi, based in Islamabad, said that he was aware of the
case of the DHA Suffa University and as such the HEC did not recognise the
university as the case had been that since grant of charter to the university in
question it had not awarded even a single degree.
The name of the DHA
Suffa University, however, is listed on the HEC website among the list of
chartered universities and degree-awarding institutes in the private
Dr Naqvi said the DHA Suffa University should have been granted
the charter before the 2002 federal cabinet's adoption of a revised and
stringent criteria and guidelines for award of charter to upcoming universities.
After the adoption of the revised criteria it was not possible for any budding
university to receive charter before commencement of academic activities. "Once
the DHA builds its university and starts educational activities we will assess
and evaluate it from scratch for due recognition. In the present circumstances
however, we cannot recognise the university," Dr Naqvi said.
The DHA had
applied and received the charter on the basis of its existing colleges imparting
degree education whose facilities and buildings would have been initially
utilised for building faculties of the proposed Suffa University, Dr Akhlaq
He said that as such there was no anomaly in the award of a
charter to the Suffa University because for the facilities of the existing DHA
colleges were shown to the authorities concerned. Dr Ahmad said that after the
required piece of land was not available he had suggested to the DHA authorities
that the university should be launched on the basis of existing degree colleges
of the authority with a centralised control of faculties. As such the revised
concept of the university was very similar to that of some of the prestigious
universities of the world, including Oxford, which had a number of constituent
colleges. This concept, however, could not materialise either, Dr Ahmad
"In the initial years, launching the university was essential for
the DHA in view of frequent correspondence of the HEC and other government
authorities concerned who wanted to see early utilisation of the charter awarded
for the Suffa University," he said.
The KU Pro-VC said he had initially
recommended that the Suffa University should comprise of the faculties of
business administration, science, social sciences, and education.
Residents' Association (DRA) Secretary Asad Qizilbash said that the DHA
establishing its own university would simply mean "cheapening" the very term
university. "The DHA confining itself to running schools and colleges would be a
fine idea but it should not go for setting up a university itself as varsities
with proper campuses and academic facilities cannot be set up in every major
residential locality of the city," he said.
DHA spokesman Lt Col (retd)
Rafat Naqvi said that the DHA had stalled the progress on the Suffa University
project some years back because it was running 19 educational institutions and
these were enough to cater to the academic needs of the Defence
He said that if the DHA wanted to set up its own university,
it should establish one offering higher education in a specialised field rather
than running a general purpose university similar to the academic model of
KU. The News
