IIUI still without rector, president
Islamabad: The International Islamic University
Islamabad (IIUI) has been running on an ad hoc basis for the last four
months without a full-time rector and president.
Sources informed that the government was waiting for a green signal
from a foreign country's ambassador in Islamabad for filling of the
posts in the institution.
It may be noted that on May 12, 2012, the then rector Prof Fateh
Mohammad Malik was sent on vacations for an indefinite period and the
charge of the university was handed over to the Quaid-i-Azam University
(QAU) Vice Chancellor Dr Masoom Yasinzai. On the other hand, the
president of the IIUI, Dr Anwar Hussain Saddiqui, retired in December
2010, but still his replacement has not been made.
According to sources, in absence of the two key officials, the
university has become almost dysfunctional. A faculty member of the
university requesting not to be identified said acting rector Dr Masoom
Yasinzai was already preoccupied with handling his own institution
having around 10,000 students. He said the IIUI had over 20,000
students, so the QAU vice chancellor cannot handle the affairs of both
the universities simultaneously.
"Politics at the IIUI is also increasing. During the last three
months, two deans – Dr Sohail of the international relations and Dr Riaz
of the quality control department – left the university. The dean of
business sciences department, Dr Irfan, had to quit the post because of
politics," he said.
"Now a group of faculty members is also trying to force Dr Bashir of
the MBA department to leave as according to them he is also teaching at
the Iqra University. However, it is a fact that most of the faculty
members belonging to this group are also teaching in different
institutes," he said.
"This particular group is also trying to force Dr Najeeb Jamal, the
dean of the faculty of languages, to leave the university. In the
absence of a full-time rector and president, there is no one to decide
what is right and what is wrong," he observed.
According to sources, the post of president at the IIUI was
advertised by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) in February 2012.
More than 50 candidates applied for the post. It was first time that at
least a criterion was adopted for evaluation of the applications.
The top 10 applicants were called for interviews scheduled on April
9. However, the interviews were called off because of some high level
intervention and rescheduled for April 23 and on that day nine
candidates appeared before the board. The interviewing panel comprised
Chairman HEC Dr Javed Leghari, the then Rector IIUI Dr Fateh Mohammad
Malik and ex-secretary Foreign Affairs Riaz Khokhar.
It is reliably learnt that the panel could not agree on any of the
candidates for inclusion in the list to be sent to the president of
Pakistan. The chairman HEC was in favour of one of the former HEC
members Dr Muhktar, who is currently with OIC/ICESCO. However, Dr Malik
did not agree on his name as he did not have an impressive
administrative experience. Dr Malik was in favour of Dr Mohammad Mumtaz
who is currently the acting president of IIUI. But Dr Leghari did not
agree on his name. Later, HEC tried to hold another round of interviews
to push its favourite candidates. However, before proceeding on leave, Dr
Malik had already submitted the names of the candidates to the
president, decision on which is still pending, said the sources.In that
panel, the name of Prof Dr Hafiz Mohammad Iqbal was also included. Dr
Iqbal has a very strong administrative and research experience. But his
name could not be approved because of lack of political support,
according to the sources.
Meanwhile, it has been learnt that the ambassador of the foreign
country has proposed the name of a foreigner, Dr Darvesh, for the post
of the president, and he is expected to join the IIUI next week.
However, some teachers privy to the development expressed the fear
that the appointment of the foreign national would disturb the
environment of the institution because of lack of easy and free
communication with the academic staff.
They cited the example of the appointment of a foreign national as
president of IIUI in the past, who used to spend much of his time in his
The IIUI was established in collaboration with other Islamic
countries to develop social sciences within Islamic perspective.
Unfortunately, despite being one of the largest universities in the
country, the IIUI could not develop properly because of the prevailing
social and political culture within the institution.
The IIUI faculty and other officials familiar with the issue are
concerned about the appointment of the foreigner because he was not even
the applicant for the slot.
IIUI spokesman Hairan Khattak said he had heard that a full-time
rector and president would be appointed soon. He claimed that the
management had resolved issues of the university.
Executive Director HEC Dr Sohail Naqvi said that according to his understanding the appointments were at the final stage
of approval at the presidency. Dawn
