Who will be the new dean of the KU Islamic Studies dept?
Karachi: The Faculty of Islamic Studies, University of Karachi (KU) is to
have a new Dean after the expiry of the tenure of Prof. Jalaluddin Noori this
month. Noori has applied for another stint as a dean but chances are that the KU
will not consider the person who has been proved to be a plagiarist.
two other aspirants for the post are Dr Akhtar Saeed, the senior-most Professor
at the department, followed by Prof. Ghulam Mehdi. Dr Saeed retires on October
16, 2009 while Prof. Ghulam Mehdi leaves his office on August 11, 2010.
few senior academics expressed their pessimism about Dr
Saeed and Prof. Mehdi being considered for the post as their retirement dates
are pretty close. They thought that Prof. Noori though tainted and disgraced by
his plagiarism and some other actions hardly befitting to a teacher of that
status, has stronger contention and has allegedly managed to garner support from
an ethnic party, a religious party and from the Governor House.
We has the opportunity to talk to some other senior professors of the faculties of
Arts and Science and they thought that university administration will not stoop
so low to put a plagiarist on the highest pedestal of the faculty. They also
brushed aside the notion that since the two other aspirants are to retire in a
relatively short time, they might not be considered. "We have many cases in the
faculties of Arts and Science where the deans had much shorter stints, a couple
of months. Soon after the retirement of Dr Viqaruddin, Dr Nazrul Hasnain, Dr
Altaf, Dr Imtiaz, Dr Iqbal Mohsin, Dr Iftikhar Imam Naqvi, Dr Aijaz Rasool, Dr
Nikhat Yasmeen, Dr Darkhshan Haleem (acting Dean), and Dr Faheemuddin (all from
the Science Faculty) became dean for a few months. They were the senior-most in
the faculty and had the chance to become dean," they said.
A Professor at
the Arts Faculty said that Dr Akhtar was the senior-most Professor at the
Islamic Studies Faculty so he should have the deanship. "We have instances in
the Arts Faculty too where Dr Afzal Imam, Dr Tahira Siddiqui, Dr Nisar Ahmed and
Dr Abu Zar Wajedi became deans for a few months," he said. The News

Another clash at FUUAST
Karachi: For a second consecutive day, Federal Urdu University of
Arts, Science and Technology (FUUAST) became a battleground as two organisations
clashed with each other, leaving many students injured. According to Risala
Police Station officials, some Pukhtoon Students Federation (PSF) members, who
are not enrolled in FUUAST, tried to enter the university premises. As a result,
other student organisations' members objected and tried to stop them resulting
in a clash between PSF and Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT). Surprisingly, People's
Students Federation who had a brawl with IJT on Wednesday supported IJT on its
stance to ban entry of all external elements. Daily Times

Basira deliberately made a false statement in the court, concealing the fact

not made as respondent by Basira in her litigation and she fraudulently told the
court that she (Anam) preferred to get MBBS admission under self finance scheme.

admission in the first year MBBS batch 2007-08.

benefits of a wrongful gain and dismissed the petition.
