stakeholders first assembled at the KGS and then demonstrated in front

change of land use from residential to commercial in the city

construct a 20-storied commercial building.
city government for declaring both the Khayaban-i-Saadi and
Khayaban-i-Roomi as commercial roads through a resolution passed in June
2005, the protesters urged the city government to immediately cancel
the commercial status of both the roads, or else conversion of
residential plots into commercial ones on these roads will open
floodgates of commercialisation, endangering the security of children
and schools of the locality, its environment, besides creating traffic
They were carrying banners inscribed with slogans
such as "commercialisation of Khayaban-i-Saadi and Khayaban-i-Roomi not
acceptable", "Down with Builders Mafia", "Help save environment", Keep
schools safe," "Keep high-rises away", Protect children and secure their
The demonstrators, including a large number of
women, shouted slogans against the proposed construction of the
building, declaring that any commercial activity around the schools was
not acceptable in any civilised society merely because such activities
put children at risk.
They apprehended that if this high-rise
building was allowed, there are 15 more plots along this road where
multi-stories building could be constructed.
Amber Ali Bhai of
Shehri, who was also protesting against the proposed high-rise building
as one of the parents said that they assembled there to voice
their anger over the commercial activities around schools in any part of

against the commercialisation of roads and construction of high-rise
buildings in areas where schools existed.

the city government's policy of declaring Khayaban-i-Saadi and

It may be pointed out that around 2,000 parents and former students of
the KGS signed and submitted a petition to the Sindh Environmental
Protection Agency (Sepa) on Friday.
The petition stated their
concerns about security and traffic congestion if the construction of a
commercial building on Plot F-8 on Khayaban-i-Saadi is permitted.
Joining the campaign against the construction is the Fifth Avenue
Neighbourhood Society (Fans), which comprises 40 households near Plot
Fans concerns are similar to those of KGS and other

A public hearing concerning the proposed high-rise building has also been arranged by Sepa on Oct 14 at 10am at Regent Plaza.

Flaws in working of HEC highlighted
Karachi: Highlighting a number of flaws in the working of the
Higher Education Commission (HEC), speakers at a seminar called for
review of the commission's policies and programmes, which, they said,
had been introduced without adequate homework and, consequently, had
caused 'chaos' at public sector universities instead of improving their

Karachi University by the Karachi University Teachers Society (Kuts) on
There was a unanimous concern among the speakers about
the cuts in the budgetary allocations of public sector universities and
they urged the government not to deprive under-resourced students to
opportunities of higher education and release adequate funds without any
A major complaint highlighted at the event
pertained to the four-year bachelors and two-year masters level
programmes. The new academic programmes, they said, had been introduced
without hiring new teachers, provision of required infrastructure and
additional funds while the extensive programmes had increased teaching
load by 50 per cent.
The quality of research had also gone down as the HEC criteria gave value only to the numbers of publications.
"This is a disaster like situation. No vision was involved at any
level, it seems," remarked Dr Shahid Qureshi representing the Institute
of Business Administration.

an international journal, Dr Nasiruddin Khan, head of the university's
centralised science laboratory, said that though the number of research
publications in Pakistan had increased manifold over the recent years,
the publications had insignificant relative impact.

flawed and created frustration among teachers.

stakeholders," he recommended.

Ali, both teachers on the KU campus, gave a presentation on how to
strike a balance between teaching and research. Teachers who focused
primarily on educating students suffered when it came to promotions and
other incentives as the HEC criteria gave no importance to a teaching

Earlier, Dr Abid Hasnain of Kuts explained that the recent strike by
teachers was not a compromise on student interests, but was an effort to
ensure that the process of education continued.
what he called the mindset that looked at universities as money-making
organisations and said that this would do extreme harm to the
institutions of higher learning.
Emphasising the need for
adequate government funding for the public sector institutions, Prof Dr
Pirzada Qasim Raza Siddiqui, the KU vice chancellor, said that state
universities all over the world were run with government support and the
same should be the case in Pakistan.
The student fee was a
small part of the university income and even if it was doubled, the
university administration couldn't meet its expenses, he said. Dawn
