KU Syndicate decided to act against the plagiarists
Karachi: The University of Karachi (KU) Syndicate, in its Saturday meeting, has decided
to act against the plagiarists after receiving reports from two retired judges
of the Sindh High Court. After many hearings and deliberations, the learned
justices have agreed that the said professors had indeed committed plagiarism.
In the case of plagiarism against Prof Jalaluddin Noori, former Dean of
Faculty of Islamic Studies, Inquiry Officer Justice (Retd) Haziqul Khairi found
him committing plagiarism without any shred of doubt.
In the case
against Dr Saeed Arayne and his wife Dr Najma Sultana from the departments of
Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Chemistry (Faculty of Pharmacy), respectively,
Inquiry Officer Justice (retd) Saleem Akhtar also gave his verdict against the
couple after citing all the rules and regulations of the Higher Education
Commission (HEC) and KU and reminding the accused the definition of plagiarism.
After the meeting, majority of senior professors
expressed their satisfaction that the infamous cases of plagiarism by the three
senior faculty members of the university have reached to logical
conclusion."It is a shame that someone plagiarises and has the gall to
defend it. They should have accepted their mistake and resigned from their posts
but they chose to defend their crime. It was very embarrassing for us," said one
of the professors while others nodded their assent.
Meanwhile, in another
decision, the KU Syndicate has not accepted the suggestion given by a HEC member
at the previous Syndicate meeting that the candidates for the post of lecturers
should have at least two first divisions. This suggestion, which was not a
decision, was taken by a faction of the Karachi University Teachers Society
(KUTS) as usurpation of teachers' rights and led to a lot of hue and
Dr Shakeel Farooqui, the incumbent Secretary of KUTS, severely
criticised the premature politics of the novices and mediocrities who jumped
into the fray to defend the rights of the prospective teachers without realising
the real meaning of the matter. The news
