KU seeks deployment of law-enforcers
Karachi, April 10, 2008: The vice-chancellor of Karachi University has directed the deans, campus security adviser and students' adviser to finalise arrangements for resumption of teaching activities from April 11 (both morning and evening programmes).

Public dealing as well as research and other activities on the campus meanwhile continued as usual, said a press release issued on Wednesday.

KU authorities also contacted the provincial government for the deployment of law-enforcers on the campus to maintain law and order.

The vice-chancellor particularly directed the deans to work out a plan for conducting extra classes, even on holidays if necessary, so as to make up for the loss of time on account of recent suspension of classes.

He instructed the students' adviser to coordinate with the students to ensure harmony and discipline among the students. However, he said, strict disciplinary action would be taken against those students who violated the university rules and became involved in activities detrimental to peace on the campus. The students of the KU have been directed to display their identity cards at the entry gates.

The University of Karachi has extended the last date for the submission of registration forms and fee for attending the forthcoming convocation of the institution till April 19.

KU VC to write 'open letter' to students
Karachi: The Vice Chancellor (VC) of the University of Karachi (KU), Prof. Pirzada Qasim will write an open letter to the students of his university imploring and advising them to rise to the occasion during the election of the student unions to prove that they can conform to the standards of the highest seat of learning.

Qasim revealed his plan on Wednesday. He expressed distress at the closure of the university saying he is the last person in the university to order the closure but the volatile situation had compelled him to take that action. "I have already talked to different student organisations and urged them to be reasonable and not to act in any way that can jeopardise the restoration of the student unions in the university." He also informed that the KU intends to post educated, well-behaved and neatly attired security wardens at the gates to manage peaceful and organised entry of the visitors in addition to the students, teachers and the staff. The wardens will have small kiosks with a table and a couple of chairs for the visitors to sit and arrange their lawful entry into the campus.

Furthermore, Karachi University Teachers Society (KUTS) will also be involved to prepare the gradual transfer of security responsibilities. He has talked with the Home Office and the Governor to arrange appropriate deployment of security personnel till the KU security takes the charge. In a related development the VC has directed the Deans, Campus Security Advisor and Student Advisor to finalise the arrangements for the resumption of teaching activities from Friday - both morning and evening programmes. Public dealing, research and other activities are already under way at the campus.

The VC has further directed all the Deans to work out a plan for conducting extra classes, even on holidays, if necessary, in order to make up for the loss of time on account of the suspension of classes recently. Moreover, he has also instructed the Students Advisor to coordinate with the students for ensuring harmony and discipline among the students. Strict disciplinary action will be taken against students who violate the KU rules and are found involved in activities detrimental to the peace of the campus.

Meanwhile, the Campus Security Adviser, Dr Khalid Iraqi, expressed his determination to create an environment of safety and security in the KU to enable the normal performance of academic activities. He urged the students to avoid the culture of confrontation and adopt negotiations. Another official, requesting anonymity, said that unfortunately the KU is the most 'politically polarised' university in the country and hoped that the political parties will take pity on the students and stop their indirect interference in the university affairs.
