Students scholarships in limbo as HEC dithers
Karachi: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) is yet to adopt any
vigorous or meaningful measure to solve the financial problems of universities
and those students who have been denied trip abroad to join their respective
universities due to lack of funds. The United States has agreed to provide 4
million dollars to the HEC to expand its financial programme. It is anticipated
that the funds would provide relief to the students in getting their
In a separate development, the HEC has issued guidelines to
curb sexual harassment, exploitation and intimidation in institutions of higher
education. A 31-page draft policy says sexual harassment is a reality that
occurs in classrooms, offices, research laboratories and Higher Education
Institutions' (HEI) environment.
Meanwhile, Federation of All Pakistan
Universities Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA) has demanded that the
government should appoint a PhD professor with university teaching experience as
the HEC chairman. The demand was made in a recently held meeting in Lahore that
also asked HEC to stop interfering in the university affairs. FAPUASA also
demanded that the posts of a Governor and a University Chancellor should be
separated as universities are facing increasing problems due to the political
role of governors. It also demanded the posting of serving professors of the
university as vice chancellors. The meeting specifically mentioned the 80-year
old superannuated Vice Chancellor (VC) of Sindh University, and asked the
government to remove him immediately.
University of Karachi (KU)
Syndicate has eventually decided to act against three plagiarists. However, the
teachers, especially from the Faculty of Islamic Studies (of Prof. Jalaluddin
Noori fame), contend that Prof. Noori has a trail of deceitful dealings, fake
degrees and other activities that hardly conform to the standard of a teacher of
higher education. "I think the VC should find an honourable departure for Prof.
Noori, as it confounds common sense that how a person with charges of
plagiarism, counterfeiting and deceit (all proved) could be sitting at such a
place without being checked by the university."
Federal Urdu University
of Arts, Science & Technology (FUUAST) has been showing some activities by
holding seminars, conferences and publishing books recently. It seems that after
all the university "is trying to wriggle out of its college concern." Some
teachers are of the opinion that the VC Dr Muhammad Qaiser means business and
the university might be able to prove is merit after all.
University for Women (JUW), the first women institution of higher learning, is
also taking great strides in educational, research and extracurricular
activities. Despite meagre resources and lack of funds from other sources due to
recessionary trends, the university is performing quite well. Recently, its
students won laurels on the Earth Day Programme Debate on a private channel by
producing the best speeches.
Prime Minister (PM) Yousuf Raza Gilani
recently met the vice chancellors of public sector universities to discuss the
financial crunch there. He assured the VCs that his government would help the
universities to come out of the financial crisis but advised them to tighten
their belts and try to generate their own funds – at least part of the total
budget. The VCs were in agreement. Let us wait and see if the message from the
PM really registered with them.
The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) also
recently invited the VCs of the province in the Sindh Assembly to discuss
various matters, especially power consumption by universities. The PAC said that
universities staff were sent nominal electricity charges and the staff wasted
power. The Committee suggested installing metres for individuals to bill them
properly, and plug the wastage. -firstname.lastname@example.org (The News)

the special children that they could achieve anything that they want to do
anything that a sighted person could do.

Karachi: Chief Secretary (CS) Sindh, Fazalur Rehman while taking
note of parents' complaints against private schools has instructed secretary
education to furnish report within a week for increase in fee of private
schools, illegally taking fee for two months during summer holidays. The CS said
that private schools were charging fee for summer holidays, which was violation
of rules and "could not be tolerated." The parents in their letter to the CS
said that substandard quality eatables were being provided at canteens of
private schools whose rate was also high as compared to the market price.
Besides syllabus books, note books and other goods including uniform were of low
quality and were being provided at higher rates. The News

Privatisation of edu institutions opposed
Karachi: After the deterioration of education in public schools, now the
education in government colleges is being targeted to promote private
institutions in the city.
Use of unfair means in the colleges is a great
conspiracy against such institutions in the province while the future of around
6,00,000 students, studying in the public colleges in Sindh, is at the stake.
Capitalists, running business in the education sector, in association with
corrupt politicians and bureaucrats of Sindh Education Department are trying to
target the college teachers by adding their service problems so that the
education at private colleges can be encouraged. These views were expressed by
central leaders of Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA), while
talking to The Nation on Sunday.
SPLA central leader Professor Ather Hussain
Mirza said that the colleges in the province had become vulnerable due to
negligence of authorities concerned; similarly the college teachers were
suffering with low salaries and low job security, despite the role of the
teachers in uplifting the society. He said, "At the time of the partition (1947)
there were only four colleges in the province, including SM Science College, DJ
Sindh Government Science College, Govt College Hyderabad Kalimore, and Govt C
& S College Skiharpur. Now the province has 248 public colleges out which
124 colleges are situated only in the metropolis. Government colleges have great
reputation as compare to schools, but corrupt elements wanted to promote private
college education in the province. The colleges teachers are considered as the
major hurdle and stumbling block in term of privatising the colleges; that is
why they are being targeting and deprived of basic service rights, including
health insurance, job confirmation, housing project, up-gradation and increase
Talking about the use of unfair means, he alleged that corruption was
deliberately introduced in 1972 on community basis to defame education in the
government colleges, while at the outset Hindu Community had spent huge funds to
get cleared their students in the examinations. It is pertinent to mention here
that the cheating mafia, backed by some students' political wings, has
threatened the teachers of some colleges for dire consequences during the
currently held HSC examinations.
Assistant Prof Yaqoob Chandio said that
Sindh Education Department was giving priority to junior over senior teachers,
as in the majority colleges of Sindh. Junior teachers are working as in-charge
principal, which is contrary to the service laws, he said, adding that college
education was being targeted deliberately as 80 per cent colleges in the
province are working under the supervision of junior teachers. The Nation

Progressive student leader remembered
Karachi: Tributes were paid on Sunday to a pioneering former student
leader, Dr Mohammad Sarwar, who struggled for the rights of students, workers
and the downtrodden masses.
Friends and admirers of the late Dr Sarwar
belonging to different walks of life, including law, engineering, literature and
the fine arts, spoke of their association with the late general practitioner at
a meeting organised by the Pakistan Medical Association at the PMA House.
Former Sindh Governor Fakhruddin G. Ebrahim, who as a young lawyer had
defended Dr Sarwar and many of his comrades in the 1950s, said that Dr Sarwar
founded the Democratic Students Union in the early 1950s because he felt
students adopted the "politics of idealism", and he also created a body that
linked all students in other educational institutions in the city together, so
that "principled politics could be strengthened in the newly born country".
Unfortunately, however, first the DSF was banned and then succeeding
governments banned student unions altogether for many years, Mr Ebrahim said.
He said that the "old leadership has failed and it is high time that a
new leadership, believing in high ideals, emerges to lead the country and bring
justice to society. He said equal rights for all must be ensured.
Mohammad Khan said that Dr Sarwar was a "true progressive", having a broad
minded and secular way of thought, he "respected religion but was against this
kind of interpretation of religion under which women were lashed and people were
Dr Jaffer Naqvi said that people could have a discussion with
Dr Sarwar for hours and while they may continue to disagree with him, he would
always listen attentively and was so tolerant that would never get angry or
raise his voice.
In an interesting revelation, Arif Hassan said that the
government had originally prepared a master plan of the city in 1951, with the
proposed federal government buildings located opposite the university. When the
DSF brought students into politics, however, and took to agitations and protests
against the government, voices were heard in cabinet meetings calling for a
change in the proposals, to relocate the federal government buildings.
Eventually, he said, Ayub Khan moved the federal government apparatus over 1,000
Aziz Tank, Samreen Hashmi, Badar Siddiqui and others
