Disable students problems in Pakistan
Disable persons are unable to get all or least facilities in Pakistan
Lahore, Jan 20: Problems Of Disable Persons There are many problems which are being faced by physically disable persons such as
blind deaf and there is some defect with leg hand etc.I am personally physically
disable person from left leg and experiencing these problems. So I am in a
better position to point out problems and suggest some remedies so that these
persons can be facilitated to spent life a useful and respectable Pakistani.
1-In Pakistan a disable person is unable to get all the facilities which
Pakistani law provides until he has a certified proof of disability. Bad luck is
that in our country a person who is right has to face difficulties to prove that
he is right. In Pakistan this certificate is being provided by the district
assessment board in every district head quarter hospital.
The procedure is too
difficult and teasing that a disable person without approach cannot get this
certificate. No person has proper information. Like all other sectors here is
also lack of responsibility and regularity in officers. A disable person cannot
submit registration form until surgeon approves. The surgeon like all other
officers is also irregular. A disable person has to visit for several months to
find surgeon and start the registration process. In my opinion a disable person
thinks that his birth is a great mistake in this world. If a person pays bribery
if although he is partially disable or not disable can get certificate easily.
social officers who are appointed are very responsible and regular but they have
no authority. According to my opinion the social officer and surgeon should be
linked. The surgeon and the social officer should sit on the same place so that
surgeons can be made regular as well as efficiency of registration process can
be improved .
2-In Pakistan like all other useable goods supporting equipments
for disable persons such as sticks ,wheel chairs, listening instruments for deaf
persons are very costly. They are not affordable by any common person .It means
that we are pushing back the disable persons in race of life. The government
provides subsidy in all sectors but till now government has not taken any
measures to provide these instruments to disable persons at concessional prices.
I request the government to take some measures to provide necessary equipments
to disable persons at concessional rates.
3-In our country at all educational
levels 2% quota is reserved for physically disable students who provide district
assessment board registration certificate of disability. For a student it is
very difficult to get that certificate due to following reasons.
(b)complicated system of registration
responsibility among registration staff So the student has to wait for years for
the registration certificate.
According to my opinion 2% quota is very less and
not according to requirements so all disable students should be provided
admission except those which are below a minimum level of merit. For this
purpose seats can be increased according to requirement. The merit should also
separate and low then the normal persons.
At university level all universities
should establish their own disciplinary boards who should be assigned the duty
of assessment of disability in disable persons for admission in those students
who have no district assessment board registration certificate so that they can
be facilitated and they can continue their education. Will it not be beneficial
to make useful persons rather than beggars. If these persons are in a position
to get education and they are successful in getting education than
rehabilitation process will not be required.
4-Like all other sectors the
education sector has also been commercialized. To get education for a disable
person is only a dream. So a legal provision should be made that all the
disable persons who get admission in all universities should be provided
education free of cost in such a way that these persons did not consider
themselves low among other students.
5-In all Government educational
institutions hostel facility is availablable.Provision should be made that all
disable persons who come from other cities and are not in a positions to go home
daily should be provided hostel facility without considering that their
admission is in morning , afternoon or evening session. I have personally
observed that in Punjab university, university authorities refused to provide
me hostel that my admission is not in morning session .I am mentioning that I
belong to Tehsil sammundari District Faisalabad(196 G.B. Muridwala) and there
is no relative in Lahore and I am only here for study purpose.
6-Most of the
educational institutions and business offices are multiple storey buildings. In
most of these buildings there are no lifts installed. So disable persons face a
lot of difficulties to go on other floors. So it should be made compulsory to
install lifts in all multiple storey buildings so that disable students as well
as employees can be facilitated. If in any educational institution it is not
possible to install lifts all disable students should be facilitated and
accommodated on ground floors.
7-In Pakistan for jobs 2 % seats are reserved for
disable persons which means that they can get one job in an organization where
50 persons are working which is not good situation. In Pakistan most of the
organizations are small so disable person after getting education are also not
in a position to get a job And spend life as a respectable citizen. According to
my opinion the quota should be in creased to 5% so that disable person can get
job in an organization where 20 employees are working.
8-For that time the
problems cannot be solved until real representatives are not present at every
stage. It is amazing that at the legislation stage in senate and national and
provincial assemblies there are no seats reserved for disable persons than how
their problems can be solved. According to my opinion some seats should be
reserved in all these institutions so that real representation of a large
portion of community can be made.
9-In federal public public service commission
exam (css) no seats are reserved for disable persons despite the fact that they
have proved their capabilities in recent years by competing the other students
in these exams.so proper quota should be reserved for disable persons in c.s.s.
so that they can also impart their role in society.
10-I want to point out a
mismanagement problem in Punjab university. In Punjab university lifts are
installed in the wahdat road examination halls and in some departments also but
they are not being operated. If a disable person want to go on second floor for
examination and to attend class he has to face a lot of difficulty. . Any higher
authority has not considered this issue. I request you to take notice because
this is a very simple issue and can be resolved easily.
11-For those persons
e.g. deaf &blind who cannot get education in educational instutions for
normal persons special institutions should be established at union council level
12-If a disable person starts a small business like shop
etc many Govt.officials like market committees WAPDA disturbs that person prior
to this that what is his income. Legal protection should be given so that these
persons can earn their livelihood in a respectable way.
13-In all educational
institutions and other public places all the facilities suitable for special
persons such as washroom etc.provided so that disable persons can feel
satisfaction on these places performing routine activities.
14-In all public
libraries and educational institutions libraries disable persons should be
facilitated so that they can benefit from these libraries. The library staff
should be trained to cooperate with special persons during library visits. If
attention should be given to above highlighted problems and proper legislation
should be made and its effective implementation should be made than we can make
disable persons useful citizen. These persons can impart properly in progress of
the country and lot of money which we spend on life time rehabilitation can be

'Language issues should be depoliticised'
Islamabad: Professor Nomanul Haq of the Lahore University of Management Sciences
(LUMS) has said language issues should be depoliticised.
delivering a talk on 'Trailing the Twilight of the UN Year of Languages: A
Conceptual Plea in the Political Marketplace' organised by the Sustainable
Development Policy Institute (SDPI) here on Monday. Dr AH Nayyar moderated the
Prof Haq favoured the entry of scientism in social sciences and
observed that it is also true for languages in a multilingual world. "If you
want to tell someone about Mirza Ghalib, you should also give him the literary
background." He said art thrives on ambiguities but denied that a language could
have imperialism in it. "There is a need to standardise languages. Farsi was
there from Tehran to Bokhara to Hyderabad and Mirpurkhas because it was
He praised Faiz and Faraz for using words in a proper
perspective and with pronunciation, which retained the metre in poetry. He did
not agree that 44 per cent people speak Punjabi and the reason is the onslaught
of Bollywood. Basing his observation at LUMS, he said, urban Punjabis are
familiar with but could not speak Punjabi and use Urdu.
He said the
battle is not between Urdu and other regional languages but between economic and
cultural hegemony. Urdu is semantically Indic and the same is the case with
Seraiki as far as the motive is concerned. He also called for standardising
Dr Tariq Rehman, director of the National Institute of Pakistan
Studies, Quaid-e-Azam University, said many known linguists talk of linguistic
imperialism, adding many Hindi words were excluded from Urdu by Muslim elites
during the British period but the change remained with elites and the common
people did not adopt it.
He said the language change is a reality and
Bollywood is not destroying but preserving the language. He said Hindi is tilted
towards Urdu or Hindustani whereas Door Darshan is still 'Sanskritising' it. In
a heated question hour session, Dr Haq said a language change might not be a
development essentially, but it could also be deterioration. A participant said
now even Urdu is being replaced by English in the wake of the to-look-down-upon
phenomenon. He also called for reducing the number of letters denoting the same
phonetic sounds like 'zuad', 'zoen', 'zaal' and 'zay' in Urdu, and raised the
issue of who would decide what is standard. Prof Inam, while agreeing in the end
that language has to change, observed that if there was no standardisation,
there would be chaos. Replying to a question, Dr Rehman said linguists do not
accept orthography. The News
