BIEK enlists scouts' help against cheating
Karachi: Perturbed over an inadequate deployment of law-enforcement agencies personnel at the centres
set up for the ongoing Higher Secondary Certificate annual examinations, the
Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) authorities have acquired the
services of scouts for controlling the menace of cheating and to check outside
interference in the examinations.
During a visit to different examination centres, scouts were seen discharging
multiple duties such as restricting outsiders at the gates of centres and
telling them that the presence of unauthorised people was banned under Section
144 of the criminal procedure code on the premises and asking the keepers of
photostat shops located in the vicinity of examination centres to keep their
business shut during the exam hours so that unscrupulous elements might not take
advantage of getting a photocopy of question papers.
In a move against the menace of cheating in exams, the scouts also displayed
banners at the centres inscribed with slogans such as "wage a Jehad against the
menace of cheating", "bring an end to copy culture", etc.
BIEK chairman and head of the board's high-powered vigilance committee Prof
Anwar Ahmed Zai during his visit to examination centres appreciated the spirit
of scouts who had waged a campaign against cheating in exams.
He said that the scouts' voluntary efforts would definitely bear fruits in
curbing the trend of copy culture.
Meanwhile, the members of the BIEK vigilance team on Thursday caught 18
candidates for using unfair means in the examinations.
Loadshedding at centres
Taking a strong notice of frequent loadshedding at various examination
centres in the current hot and humid weather, the board authorities once again
requested the Karachi Electricity Supply Company to exempt examination centres
from loadshedding so that candidates could solve their papers with ease and
Expressing concern over the absence of law-enforcement agencies personnel
from various examination centres, the board's team deplored that although the
issue of security at examination centres had been brought into the notice of
authorities concerned, they were unable to ensure the presence of law
enforcement personnel at examination centres to check outside interference.
They expressed the apprehension that law and order might break down at the
examination centres, if authorities concerned did not take immediate
They said that strict security was needed at examination centres especially
those declared as "sensitive" by the controller of examinations. Dawn

Teacher beats student unconscious
Karachi: One has heard of severe disciplinary action throughout Pakistan's schools, but a teacher
at a private school went to a new extreme and brutally beat one of his students
unconscious for not wearing a tie during school hours.
The teacher, who
is also the principal of the school, left bruises on his student, Sataish Khan,
after he struck him on the forehead and the face for his minor disobedience. "My
son is studying in Class IV at a private school in Baldia Town, where a teacher
named Gulzar assaulted him," the boy's father, Mir Sada Khan said.
Khan said that although a tie was part of the school uniform, he
believed there was no reason for the teacher to assault his son in such a
manner. The student's father cringed at the fact that the teacher struck the
young boy on his face.
He added that when Gulzar initially noticed that
Sataish was bleeding, the teacher tried to administer first aid, but this was to
no avail as he was unable to stem the flow and Sataish fell unconscious, Khan
"My son was studying at another school. However, I was
dissatisfied with the institute, so I consulted Gulzar who told me to enrol my
son in his school." But little did the father know that his adviser would later
physically abuse his son.
Gulzar was a friend of Sada Khan and the two
had a good understanding. At the time, Khan had contemplated moving his son to
another school and agreed to enrol his son in Gulzar's school.
imagined that Gulzar would turn out to be such a nasty person. I had asked him
to provide my young son with a decent education, instead he beat my child till
he bled," Khan said while reflecting upon his son's traumatic experience.
In addition to this, the father of the injured child said Gulzar would
adopt various methods of extracting extra money from parents. He would ask them
to purchase books and answer scripts directly from the school. "These books were
unavailable in the market and I would be forced to order them. I now believe
that this was a trick he used to make more money in addition to the tuition
fees. Following the beating, I pulled my child out of the school."
his bitter experience with private schools, Sada Khan has decided to enrol his
son in a government school, as he feels that private institutions are only
interested in making money.
Meanwhile, he has appealed to the minister
of education and other officials of the education department to conduct an
inquiry and punish Gulzar so that principals and teachers like him never raise a
hand at students again.

'KEMU to generate its own resources for projects'
Lahore: Given the government's financial constraints, the King Edward Medical University (KEMU),
Lahore, has embarked upon an ambitious plan to launch new programs for
generation of its own resources for academic, research and developmental
projects in the varsity.
In an exclusive interview here on
Thursday, KEMU acting vice-chancellor Prof Dr Asad Aslam Khan said that there
was a need for plugging in resources to run academic and research activities and
execute development projects in a medical university. The activities and
projects, he added, had to be shelved if the administration depended on the
cash-starved government for provision of funds. Therefore, he maintained, it was
the responsibility of all the autonomous medical teaching institutions to devise
their own strategy to generate resources on their own – especially in view of
the provincial government's limitations to provide additional resources, as it
has to divert huge resources for rehabilitation of flood victims; increase in
salaries of doctors; free treatment and medicines in public sector hospitals.
Besides, the plan, he added, would help the varsity share the government's
policy of self-reliance, rather than depending on the foreign aid.
this connection, he said, the varsity administration would soon be opening
collection centres of KEMU Diagnostic Lab in different parts of Lahore, which
would not only provide quality diagnostic facilities to the masses but also earn
a substantial sum of money on a regular basis for the university. The
collections centres, he said, would be opened on the pattern of collection
centres of Shaukat Khanum Hospital and Aga Khan University – a major source of
their income. Besides, KEMU's Pathology Department service would be available
round the clock for private patients, helping the varsity generate a hefty
The unclaimed bodies kept in the mortuary would also be made
available for the private medical institutions for teaching and training of
their students; although it would generate only a small amount of money but it
would facilitate private institutions to provide quality training to their
Furthermore, he said, the KEMU would also unveil a "Donors
Wall" encircling the sports ground, which would involve all past graduates to
reserve a brick inscribed with their names at a cost of Rs 50,000 each in order
to contribute to academic and extra-academic activities in their alma mater.
"We will write to all graduates from across the world, including those
in the US, the UK, Europe, the Middle East, the Far East. The KEMCANA - the
Kemcolians Association of North America – would also be asked to donate and
effectively contribute to the development of the university," he
The funds so generated, Prof Asad Aslam Khan said, would be
utilized for future projects, including establishment of Institute of
Neurosciences, Institute of Basic Sciences, Institute of Urology and
Transplantation, Institute of Maxillofacial Surgery and Institute of Allied
He said that the KEMU had already started construction
work on a new seven-storey building adjacent to Patiala Block, which would house
an auditorium with a capacity of 600 extendable to 1,000 persons; modern
library; state-of-the-art lecture theatre; research and development wing;
examination hall; offices of the Registrar; and Controller of Examinations,
Treasurer and all other administrative offices. "The project will be completed
within a stipulated period of two years with a total cost of Rs 220 million," he
said, adding that, originally, it was a project of Rs 479 million funded by the
Higher Education Commission. The university had only received an amount of Rs 59
million before the controversy over the existence of HEC, while the remaining
amount was to be released in phases. "The KEMU will complete the project through
its own resources if the HEC doesn't release the amount," he added.
informed that the KEMU would also start construction of an Animal House in the
university from next week, which would greatly help in imparting quality
training to the medical students and research purposes. The renovation and
up-gradation of basic science departments of Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry
and Pharmacology was also in progress in the university.
said, a new floor of Girls Hostel would also be constructed on our own resources
because the girls' strength had outnumbered boys, with 65:35 ratio of admissions
on 325 seats in the university. Besides, he said, a state-of-the-art ICU in Mayo
Hospital was being established at a cost of Rs 8.5 million collected through
donations, which would be completed within one month. Furthermore, a double road
was also being constructed in front of Paeds Emergency in the Mayo Hospital with
the help of philanthropists, he said.
The KEMU acting vice-chancellor
further informed that the varsity was a premier medical institution, which had
been the first choice of FSc and A-Level students as it topped the merit amongst
all medical institutions in the province. He said that rules and regulations had
been framed under the KEMU (Amendment) Act 2010 and all the departments were
fully functioning under these rules and regulations. "It has established an
absolutely fair and transparent examination system by using fictitious roll
numbers," he said, adding that papers were not sent outside the university and
all the examiners were bound to mark the papers in Examination Department of the
He said that the KEMU was running 54 undergraduate and
postgraduate courses, which were recognized by the Pakistan Medical and Dental
Council. As against the previous number of 1,300 to 1,400 students in the
institution, presently there were more than 3,000 students studying in different
undergraduate and allied health sciences as well as postgraduate courses,
including MS, MD, MDS, M.Phil and PhD in the university. "The PhD program has
become very popular because of the high-caliber local and adjunct PhD faculty,"
he said and added that the promotion of research was top priority of the
university as an amount of Rs 20 million was allocated for research in the
current financial year. He said that the KEMU had the largest faculty amongst
the medical institutions, adding that there were 49 posts of professors out of
which currently only eight seats of professors, including two seats of professor
of Anatomy and one seat each of professors of Pharmacology, Biochemistry,
Medicine, Neurosurgery, Cardiac Surgery and TB & Chest Diseases, were lying
vacant. "The applications have already been received in response to the
advertisement in this regard, and the postings would be made as soon as
clearance is received from the Health Department, Punjab," he
Moreover, the KEMU is going to hold its 3rd convocation for the
session 2009-2010 on May 28, 2011, which is expected to be chaired by Chief
Minister, Punjab, Mian Shahbaz Sharif and Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Khan
Khosa being the guest of honor on the occasion. The medals and degrees would be
awarded to the 340 graduates, including 225 graduates of session 2009-2010 and
115 from the sessions from 1999 to 2006. The graduates of sessions 2006-2008
were conferred their degrees during the last two convocations held in 2008 and
2010. "The convocation, which is an academic feast and honor for the graduates,
will be a regular annual feature of the university," he said.
