Absence of full-time VC affecting ICU affairs
Peshawar: The absence of a full-time vice-chancellor at the Islamia College
University (ICU) is badly affecting the administrative affairs of one of
the most prestigious seats of learning in the province and the recent
move to replace the acting vice-chancellor may cause further
deterioratation in the situation.
vice-chancellor of the university, Ajmal Khan was kidnapped in September
2010. The government and law enforcement agencies have failed to
recover him and since his abduction the university affairs are being run
through a caretaker setup.
After the kidnapping of the
vice-chancellor, Prof Dr Haider Shah was given the acting charge of the
office in accordance with the University Act, which says the senior most
faculty member of the institution would be given the acting charge in
case of absence of the vice-chancellor.
administration of the university was against the posting of a number of
administrative officials and teachers on deputation, nominations in the
university's senate, alleged favouritism in appointments, plagiarism
cases, mismanagement in the examination system and financial
irregularities allegedly carried out by officials appointed by the
This was the reason that the
university nominees in the senate, who were four in number, started
opposing the acting vice-chancellor. Meanwhile, the Higher Education
Commission (HEC) found a senior faculty member of the university Prof Dr
Javed Badshah, who happened to be a nominee of the university senate,
guilty of plagiarism and asked the university administration to take
action against him.
In order to preempt any possible
action against him, Javed Badshah threatened to move a resolution
against the acting vice-chancellor in the senate meeting on April 27,
which according to majority of the faculty members of the university was
The threat worked as the vice-chancellor
assured the meeting that he would tender his resignation. It caused
resentment among the teachers of the university who stood up behind the
vice-chancellor and started a movement in the name of saving the
university. They moved the court against the meeting, which according to
them was illegal. They also restrained the vice-chancellor from
quitting his office. The court also stayed the proceedings of the
Now that the higher education department is all
set to issue minutes of the senate meeting, the acting vice-chancellor
is expected to be replaced. The names under consideration for the office
have, however, created concern among the teachers as none of them
include any faculty member of the university.
Staff Association of the university was the first to express its serious
concern over the situation. President of the association Faisal Shehzad said that first of all he wanted to dismiss the notion that
there was any wrangling among the teachers of the university. "The
mud-slinging in media by some vested interest elements will ultimately
tarnish the image of the institution, which is about to mark its
centennial celebrations," he said.
"It is a war between
the right and the wrong. We want an end to wrong and end the injustices
in the university. We don't have any vested interests and we don't
represent any particular group," he argued.
are perturbed over the reports about expected appointment of an acting
vice-chancellor from another university. The names of Prof Dr Noor Jahan
and Prof Dr Yaseen Iqbal of the University of Peshawar and Prof Dr Fida
Mohammad of Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Science and Technology are
considered as the favourites. All hree belong to the Friends group
supported by the Awami National Party (ANP).
ANP has focused special attention on the universities as almost all the
vice-chancellors appointed during its rule are from its like-minded
The Teaching Staff Association president said
bringing someone from another institution when experienced and able
teachers were available in the university would cause serious resentment
among the faculty members. The teachers were particularly concerned
about the expected appointment of Dr Noor Jahan, who according to them
was the junior most professor.
A senior teacher said on the condition of anonymity that Dr Noor Jahan was promoted as
professor in 2010. In comparison, he said several faculty members of the
ICU were made professors before 2000. He alleged that some senior
members of the ruling ANP were pushing for her appointment. The news

France to provide 90 scholarships
Islamabad: The French embassy has signed a
memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Higher Education Commission
(HEC) regarding provision of scholarships for Pakistani students.
Ambassador to Pakistan Philippe Thiebaud, HEC Chairman Professor Dr
Javaid Leghari and vice chancellors of six universities signed the MoU
at the French embassy.
Speaking on the occasion, Thiebaud said these
were need-based scholarships. "We celebrated the France Day a few days
ago and announced to increase bilateral cooperation with Pakistan. This
MoU is one of those collaboration, which we announced a few days ago.
The scholarship programme will benefit 90 students from six
universities, with total cost of Rs 23 million," he said. The envoy also
assured to continue such cooperation in the future. The ambassador said
that through such activities, people would be encouraged to get higher
education within the country instead of going abroad.
The ambassador said that the programme was only for six
universities initially, which might be extended to other universities.
said there was a need to invest more in the education sector of
Pakistan because it was the only way to put the country on the path of
"This scholarship scheme will further strengthen the
close and long-term bilateral relations between the governments of
Pakistan and France," he said. In Pakistan, less than eight percent of
the people between 17 and 23 years of age are currently enrolled in any
form of higher education. "The new scholarship programme is one answer
to this challenge. This programme will enable young people, primarily
from FATA, KP and Balochistan, to pursue their education in top
universities/institutions of Pakistan."
The scholarships will be
offered in the fields of social science, business and architecture.
Students from the Quaid-e-Azam University; COMSATS Institute of
Technology, Islamabad; Government College University, Lahore; Institute
of Management Sciences, Peshawar; Institute of Business and Management,
Karachi; and Sardar Bahadur Khan Women University, Quetta; will benefit
from this programme.
The scholarship awards are designed to cover the
complete cost of education during the entire academic programme of the
90 recipients. Daily times

16 university teachers facing the axe
Islamabad: Management of the Federal Urdu University
of Arts, Science and Technology has decided not to renew contracts of
16 faculty members who were hired only four months ago and would become
jobless just before Eid.
On the other hand, the management has advertised 40 new posts and
instead of sending the applicants formal call letters, it was calling
the candidates through phones to come for the test on July 25.
According to sources, a total 18 visiting faculty members were
appointed on February 27 and just after four months, 16 of them have
been informed that "university does not need their services anymore".
The advertisement for the new recruitments has also been given
through additional registrar which is another unprecedented step because
as per normal practice such advertisements are given through
registrar's office of the university, sources said.
According to documents available with Dawn, 16 faculty members:
Sajjad Hussain, M Ishtiaq Ameer, Sajid Mehmood, Mohammad Wasim, Zoya
Khan, Salman Saleem, M Sajjad Akbar, Nausheen Saba Khurram, Rabia
Basheer, Mohammad Azam, Tahir Hussain, Beenish Abbas, Irfan Khalid,
Sadia Fatima, Mohammad Hanif and Sidra Tehreem have been informed that
their contracts will not be renewed so they will become irrelevant for
the university after date of expiry of their contract.
When contacted, Zoya Khan, one of the affected teachers, said that
she was only informed about the decision on Friday. However, she
resolved to ask the management about the reason behind the move during
her next visit to the varsity. Another faculty member, Sajid Mehmood,
when contacted, was too disappointed about the decision to comment.
However, another faculty member requesting not to be named said, "It
is very strange that university has decided to terminate our services
without assigning any reason and is hiring new staff to replace us.
"We were doing fine but still management has decided to terminate our
jobs which will be implemented just before Eidul Fitr and it will be
really painful for us and our family members.
Decision makers should take notice of our issue," he pleaded. "The
varsity management was appointing new faculty members/staff and for that
due procedure is not being followed," he alleged.
Nawaz Jilani who was initially appointed as a lecturer along with the
other 17 persons but was later offered the post of university's public
relations officer (PRO) said that Ramazan had nothing to do with the
termination of faculty members. "They can find jobs somewhere else
because there are lots of jobs for the competent persons in the market,"
Dean Faculty of Social Sciences, Prof Suleman D Mohammad revealed
that he was neither taken into confidence while hiring the faculty
members nor the same was done before firing them.
"At the moment there is an acting vice chancellor (VC) in the
varsity. So decision of hiring or firing cannot be taken till the
appointment of a permanent VC. "Being a dean, the management should have
taken my suggestions at least before taking the decision," he said.
Registrar of the university, Prof Dr Qamarul Haq, said that he was
disappointed to know that faculty members were being terminated ahead of
Eid and assured that he would talk to the VC to resolve the issue. When asked why the advertisement of hiring new
faculty members was not issued with his name, he said: "I am not aware
of any advertisement appearing in the press regarding new recruitments.
If it really did, it was illegal."
Campus Incharge Prof Dr Zahid Saleem, when contacted, said that it
was a normal routine that university terminated the services of faculty
members because in next semester courses could change. "Most of the
faculty members are new, so they may perceive the decision as unusual.
We will call them again if the services of anyone of them are required,"
Acting Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof Dr Mohammad Qaisar came up with a different version of the story
saying the decision regarding not to revise the contracts had been taken
on performance bases.
However, he assured that he would look into the matter on
humanitarian grounds. As far as advertisement for new jobs was concerned
it was published in press after getting approval from the relevant
authority, he insisted. Dawn
