KEMU syndicate okays girls' shifting to boys hostel
Lahore: King Edward Medical University Syndicate on Monday approved the varsity management's decision to accommodate female students in the boys' hostel located on McLoad Road.

Presided over by KEMU pro-vice chancellor Prof Dr Asad Aslam, the Syndicate meeting was attended by University of Engineering and Technology (UET) VC, the health special secretary, Higher Education Commission additional secretary, finance deputy secretary, medical superintendents of Mayo, Lady Aitchison and Lady Willingdon hospitals, besides senior faculty members of the varsity.

The decision to shift female students to the boys' hostel was taken after the UET engineering and building departments' reports declared the old girls' hostel structure dangerous, recommending its demolition to avoid any accident, owing to its dilapidated condition.

The male students launched agitation and refused to vacate the hostel for the girls.

The meeting participants were informed that 62.6 per cent of the KEMU students were females, while a new batch of MBBS was also ready to join the classes on December 13. Hence, the girl students were facing enormous accommodation problems.

Giving legal cover to the decision, the Syndicate said the girls would use the new accommodation till the construction of new hostel on the premises of the varsity for them.

Appointment of VC illegal
Muzaffarabad: The Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) High Court, here on Monday, declared the appointment of Chaudhry Naib Hussain as Vice Chancellor (VC) of Mirpur University of Science and Technology (MUST) as null and void, for having been made in violation of the law governing the affairs of the institution.

The controversial appointment made by former AJK President Raja Zulqarnain Khan, in complete oversight of sections 10-11 of the MUST Ordinance, 2008, was challenged by engineering faculty's Prof Dr Riaz Mughal, 16 months ago.

The case was heard by a full bench, comprising Chief Justice Ghulam Mustafa Mughal, Justice Munir Ahmed Chaudhry and Justice M Tabassum Aftab Alvi.

The bench held that the person to be appointed as VC was required to have a PhD degree, besides being a researcher with publications in foreign journals but Mr Hussain simply held an MSc degree.

UoP offers distance learning courses to Afghan students
Peshawar: The University of Peshawar will extend its distance learning programme and other relevant disciplines for research degrees to Nangarhar University of Afghanistan.

According to a press release, the University of Peshawar (UoP) and Kabul University will also execute joint research projects for resource exploration in Afghanistan.

Talking to a three-member delegation of Canadian High Commission led by Political Counsellor Denis Chouinard, UoP Vice-chancellor Dr Qibla Ayaz said here on Monday that travelling of people to and from Afghanistan couldn't be stopped owing to proximity and bonds among the people on both sides of the Durand Line.

The visiting delegation also included Christopher Martin, analyst Asia division for the government of Canada, and Uday Sequeira, first secretary (political) of the Canadian High Commission, Islamabad.

Prof Babar Shah and Pakistan Studies Centre director Prof Fakhrul Islam were also present on the occasion, said the press release.

The visit was focused on identifying the role of UoP in Afghanistan-Pakistan cooperation process, said Mr Chouinard. This was because UoP was host to a number of Afghan students and the fact that most of the people at the helm of affairs in the Afghan government had either remained students of the institution or their offspring had been part of it, he added.

The delegation also showed interest in organising joint seminars and symposia to judge the approach of Afghan and UoP students about the best scenario for a peaceful Afghanistan in the future, especially after 2014.

"Many of the Afghans living in Pakistan today are not war refugees only. In fact most of them are economic migrants and unless there is a stable Afghanistan, we have to live with them," said Prof Babar Shah.

He added that India seemed to be ready to resolve outstanding issues with Pakistan mainly because it wanted to play a role in the global politics.

The delegation was informed that UoP being the closest foreign higher education institution was contributing to rebuilding of Afghanistan and that was why Afghan students were offered at least one seat each in all departments of the university under normal fee. Dawn
