Al-Khair University: No degree recognision by HEC
Al-Khair University: No degree acceptable after April 30: HEC
Islamabad, May 18: The participants of the 18th
meeting of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) on Saturday expressed
reservations about continued 'substandard operation' of Al-Khair University.
A press release said to safeguard interests of students and ensure
provision of quality education in Pakistan, the HEC had directed that Al-Khair
University must stop all new admissions and that the commission would not
recognise any degree issued to students by the university after April 30, 2009.
Al-Khair University, with a charter issued by government of the AJK, was
not legally authorised to open any campus, grant affiliation or have franchises
in any area of Pakistan unless it had got approval from government of the
province concerned in addition to having academic jurisdiction in that
particular area, it said.
It said the HEC had been forced to take the
decision not to recognise the degrees issued to students admitted to Al-Khair
University after April 30, in light of the fact that the university had not
established a proper main campus in AJK that was the minimum requirement as per
Cabinet Criteria and guidelines for establishment of a new university.
It said the university was offering degree programmes in professional
disciplines such as law, pharmacy, electrical engineering, homeopathy etc and
was not meeting the minimum criteria for accreditation.
Over the years,
the AJK president had also directed the university to meet the standards set for
quality education, build the infrastructure required and hire necessary faculty
members, it said.
It said these critical issues had not been addressed
by the university leading to the decision of the commission not to accept future
enrolments into any academic programmes of Al-Khair University.
ensure that the students currently enrolled in this university did not suffer,
the commission had constituted a committee to address the issue.

And as per HEC requirements, more than 80 Kanals of land has been acquired by Al Khair University at Bimber AJK and construction work is about to start. HEC also issued a letter on 6th August 2009 that the efforts taken by the University towards fullfilment of cabinet criteria are encouraging.

Islamabad: The Quaid-e-Azam University (QAU) students have demanded a ban on political activities to maintain peace on
They said some political activists were trying to establish
Islami Jamiat-e-Tulba's (IJT) wing in the university. The students said they
would not allow any political organisation to disturb peaceful environment of
Fahad Khan Yousafzai, a student of International
Relations Department said on Sunday that a few IJT activists, who
were expelled from the Punjab University, recently had gotten admission in the
QAU under a conspiracy to ruin peaceful atmosphere of the university. Yousafzai
said they had submitted a petition to the QAU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Qasim Jan
to stop IJT from political activities in the university. He said the IJT
activists were harassing students by lodging fabricated cases against them with
the Secretariat Police Station.
Another student from the MPA Department
said the IJT activists had set up a camp at QAU on Thursday on the pretext of
collecting money for displaced persons from restive areas of the country, but
some other students stopped them from political activities on the

IJT had only a few activists in the university, they called their friends from

QAU ASA to start protest today
Islamabad: The Academic Staff Association (ASA) of Quaid-i-Azam University
has decided to start a protest campaign from today (Monday) against the
non-acceptance of its demands of BPS incentive scheme, upgradation of hardship
cases and regularisation of contractual faculty members.

university at 10:30 a.m. today. They would move to the Administration Building
in the form of a rally. They would continue their protest for one hour on
alternate days, while black armbands would be worn on all working days, said a
statement of the ASA.
The BPS Incentive Scheme was part of the Tenure
Track System (TTS) in vogue in the university since July 2007. Somehow the
letter written in 2003 offering incentives to the non-TTS faculty went missing
from files. It was only last year that the HEC executive director gave its copy
to the ASA and the process started. The scheme was adopted by the syndicate
early this year but with certain conditions disputed by the teachers'

Contract teachers lose it all
Islamabad: Scores of contract teachers who had been regularised by the
Federal Directorate of Education in January, and given three years to acquire
professional qualifications, have been fired instead.
In its dismissal
order of March 25 the Directorate took the plea its January 29 order regarding
their regularisation stated that it was "subject to revision, modification and
cancellation as and when found necessary".
However the 31 male and 46
female teachers hit by the axe find it cruel. Why couch the regularisation order
in a language that defies natural law and kills the justice it sought to do to
the contract teachers, they ask.
They said they were entitled to
continue in service on regular basis unless anyone of them failed to secure CT
or BEd degree within three years.
They had been teaching on contract in
government schools in and around Islamabad for years, all the time struggling
for the status of regular teachers.
In January 2009, the Directorate
notified that teachers of English and Science subjects on contract were being
regularised on temporary basis with effect from July 1, 2008. They would be
re-designated as Trainee Undergraduate (TUGT) in BPS-14 on the fixed pay of
Rs4,920 per month, along with usual allowances.
They were to be treated
as untrained TUGT and were given three years to acquire professional degree of
CT or BEd, otherwise their services will be terminated.
It promised the
teacher who secured the degree the running scale of TUGT and seniority in the
cadre according to relevant rules.
However, the notification
simultaneously stated that the regularisation step was "temporary, terminable on
fortnight notice, without assigning any reason".
And that is what the
Directorate did just eight weeks later.
Its March 25, 2009 order said
"the order issued on January 29, regarding regularisation of English and Science
teachers contract as TUGT is hereby cancelled/withdrawn/undone as they do not
fulfil the requisite professional qualification for the post as prescribed in
the existing recruitment rules".
The dismissed teachers argue that being
probationers, the continuation of their services depended upon their performance
which was never found wanting.
"Moreover", they say, "other terms and
conditions applicable to government employees do not provide for the possibility
of termination of service without a departmental inquiry/show cause notice on
misconduct, which was not the case here."
The teachers say that the
so-called condition that the regularisation order was "subject to revision,
modification and cancellation as and when found necessary" mocks at the well
settled law that no civil servant can be condemned unheard.
not allow the government to undo an order that had created rights in favour of
citizens," one of them said. Dawn

The displaced children will be accommodated in government
schools and model colleges in the federal capital.

students toward making contribution for empty handed displaced persons who were
compelled to take refuge in different camps.
FDE will hold a meeting with
principals of the schools and colleges to instruct them about the plans to
assist the IDPs.
There are 20 model colleges, eight F.G colleges and more
than 300 F.G schools in the federal capital where the displaced children will be
admitted, Mujahid Zameer said.

Regional Academic Coordinator, The City School, Mrs Safinaz Hassan
said that the administration of the school has dispatched relief goods to
the people of Swat, a week before displacement. After coordinating with DCO of
Swat, three trucks carrying ration were sent to Swat, she informed.
Around 500 students were studying in different branches of the city school in
the Swat areas and the school administration has allowed those students to
continue their study anywhere. Without seeing any documents, they will be
accommodated in any branch of the schools, she said.Few students of matric class
have already been accommodated in the school's campus in Mardan. While the
students of O level were shifted to other centres in cooperation with British
The social welfare society in Mardan's campus became active after
the displacement and they were provided eating utensils and crockery at their
camps on their own initiatives.
The school administration has targeted one of
the government school with 600 IDPs and it has taken the entire responsibility
to provide them support and to bring normalcy in their lives, she
Similarly, fund raising has been started in all the branches of the
school to provide cash amount to IDPs.
Director Roots Schools System, Mrs
Riffat Mushtaq said that the school being an active member of Red Crescent

the forefront whenever there had been any disaster or calamity", she said
Personal letters were issued to all the students for mobilizing them to
participate in the fund raising and other relief activities for the IDPs, she
"We are mainly targeting the children between the ages of two and a
half year to 11 years. The students brought food packs from their homes and one
week collection will be delivered to the IDPs at their camps," she
Besides, a cheque of one day salaries of the staff will be presented to
the Prime Minister Relief Fund, she told.
She was of the view that illiteracy
is the root cause of all the problems and we must unitedly formulate any
strategy to enrol every child in the school.
Riffat Mushtaq suggested that
the government teachers who were serving in Swat should be gathered either at
Peshawar or some other point and be inducted in the camps for educating the
children on priority basis. App
