School wall collapse
Karachi: The death of four youngsters who were crushed under the weight of a 100-year-old wall which collapsed in a school on Manora Island on Thursday, speaks volumes for the kind of priority the educational authorities attach to safety at school. Although the school in question had been abandoned for a newer building nearby, the question rankles as to why it wasn't demolished or fenced off. The old building had apparently been vacated six years ago as it had become a looming threat to the students and teachers. However, even after the students were shifted to a new school the concerned authorities continued to ignore demands to demolish the old structure. Pakistani schools face severe problems of infrastructure, such as the absence of boundary walls, dilapidated buildings, unusable furniture and so on. The statistics issued in 2007 are telling: 52 per cent of government schools in the country have no boundary wall while 15 per cent are without a proper building, placing the students at great risk, especially in light of the frequency with which school collapses are reported.

Last year when a school collapsed in Jacobabad, there were nine injuries but luckily no fatalities. However, Kashmiri children in 2005 were less fortunate when a massive earthquake caused schools, many of them poorly constructed, to collapse like a pack of dominoes. This is one problem facing the education sector to which there is a simple solution - money. The government can give a boost to existing infrastructure by allocating more funds to improve the condition of school buildings. Not only will this provide a more nurturing learning environment for children, it will also counter potentially life-threatening circumstances. The government needs to learn a lesson from the latest tragedy and direct all its attention to the renovation of such buildings so that they conform to safety norms. In this regard, a focus on quality is imperative. It is evident that the material used in the construction of schools is of poor quality. Moreover, inspection should take place at the time of building to ensure the safety of design and structure, while regular checks should be carried out once the school is operational. Meanwhile, the authorities in this case should be brought to book. Dawn

JI, IJT hold joint demos
Karachi: The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) held a joint protest demonstration on Friday at the Lasbella Chowk against the killing of JI workers and IJT students at the University of Karachi Campus at the hands of workers of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and the All Pakistan Muttahida Students Organisation (APMSO).

They demanded of the government of Sindh to immediately arrest the killers and sack the Sindh Governor, Dr Ishratul Ebad, under whose connivance, they alleged, a reign of terror was let loose in the city.

Secretary JI, Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman, speaking on the occasion, said that certain elements wanted to disturb the peace of the city and that, though the Rangers were positioned at the KU to maintain peace, they remained silent spectators during the mayhem that took two innocent lives.

He said that, under a planned agenda, the MQM had been given a target to unleash terrorism in the city and also held the provincial as well as federal governments responsible for giving licence to the MQM. The News
