In memory of Dr Zoha
Karachi: Dr Syed Shamus Zoha will always be remembered fondly for the
services he rendered to the country, said Vice Chancellor University of
Karachi (KU), Dr Pirzada Qasim.
He was speaking at a memorial
reference held in the remembrance of Dr Zoha. The event was organised by
the Faculty of Pharmacy, KU in the Arts auditorium on Thursday.
Qasim recalled the charismatic personality of Dr Zoha and referred to
him as the father of pharmacy. "He was the first person who produced
penicillin in Pakistan and a godfather to thousands of students who
still remember him," he added. "I was not Dr Zoha's student but I
recognise his stature as an academic. I saw him for the first time in
1962. He had a versatile personality. Establishing the Department of
Pharmacy, getting it upgraded to a faculty and then working tirelessly
to take it to new heights is great work from a one man army that he was.
We should, including the students, emulate him in letter and spirit,"
Many former students of Dr Zoha, who are now in their 50s
and 60s, had gathered at the reference to share the lifetime
achievements of their great teacher. One of his many students, Dr Anwar
Ejaz Beg who is currently the Vice Chancellor of Ziauddin University,
recapped the first meeting with Dr Zoha who came from Daudkhel
Penicillin Factory to lecture the M.Sc Final year students. "I was
instantly drawn towards the pleasant personality of Dr Zoha and that
first meeting turned into a loving association with him. It was a
pleasure to work with him. His affection and care for the students and
his junior colleagues was astounding. He would go all the way to help
them," he recalled in a voice that quivered with emotion.
Manzar now retired from Pharmacy Faculty, KU and former registrar of
Jinnah University For Women (JUW), shared anecdotes about Dr Zoha
including how he met to Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. "In 1972, Dr
Zoha met with Bhutto and convinced him that KU's Pharmacy Department
had to be upgraded to a faculty. He told Bhutto that he needed 200,000
rupees for the purpose as KU had no funds for it. Bhutto conceded and
the amount was given to Dr Zoha and the rest as they say is history!"

Book on origins of the Afghan issue launched
Karachi: Dr Riaz Ahmed Shaikh, author of three books, was paid rich
tributes for his research-based latest Urdu book, titled, "Great Game Se
New World Order Tak" that was launched on Thursday at the Karachi Press
Dr Muhammad Ali Siddiqui (Ariel) who presided over the
function said that it was a lasting book as it covered the history of
Afghanistan in the context of past and modern developments in that
society. Besides, the issues Dr Shaikh took up were very current,
informative and in a way historic that showed the role of the
imperialist world and negative political forces in Afghanistan.
Siddiqui, while analyzing the research work of Dr Shaikh, observed that
he followed the actual principals of research and being a professor,
drew perfect conclusions. He further held that Dr Shaikh had very
rightly examined the negative and positive developments taking place in
Afghanistan where the innocent citizens had to face victimisation,
torture, and killing by the extremist elements.
Nazeer Leghari also praised Dr Shaikh, while adding that he had an
ability to put two and two together while writing the history of
Afghanistan in the context of great game and new world order.
Tauseef Ahmed Khan in his speech appreciated Dr Shaikh for his courage
and bold analysis, but disputed his viewpoint that some of the rulers
nominated by the then Soviet Communist Party were some agents of KGB.
said this aspect showed that Dr Shaikh had relied on fake information
and propaganda launched by the CIA and other opponents of the Afghan
Revolution. The revolution, in fact had brought about many important
social changes in Afghanistan, but the extremists marred all these
developments and enlightened steps.
Another speaker, Yousuf Mastikhan
who appreciated Dr Shaikh for having written a good research-based book
which covered many important social and political aspects and exposed
negative forces playing a part in the destruction of Afghanistan, but
some of the views like calling socialist leaders as agents was not fair
as such leaders were following the guidelines of their party and also of
the Communist Party of Soviet Union.
However, Mastikhan said that
the book as a whole gave a good understanding. He said that only
solution to Afghan war was to oust the foreign forces and allow citizens
of Afghanistan to make their decisions on their own. Mastikhan also
pointed out that there was a major factor of regions forces that would
have to play an important part in the future.
Muqtida Mansoor, who
conducted the proceedings of the function paid glowing tributes to Dr
Shaikh, saying that earlier he had given two books titled 'Aflas, Samaji
Na Hamwariayn Aur Tarraqi Ka Safar' and 'Pakistan, Jamhooriat aur Fauji
Hakoomatain' that dealt with the serious social and political issues.
concluded that owing to his in-depth study, he proved to be a true
social scientist and educationist and had a command over writing on
relatively different issues including those dealing with current
affairs. The news
