KU VC for Rangers' stay, teachers disagree | Dow admissions

Karachi, April 15, 2008: The Rangers shall continue to guard the University of Karachi campus, said a handout Monday.

"It was unanimously agreed that the presence of the rangers is a great help in maintaining law and order on campus and this should continue," said a press release issued by the KU Public Relations Department.

It was decided at a high-level meeting on law and order on campus with the vice chancellor. However, the teachers have claimed that no such decision was made at the meeting and the Rangers shall remain a call away instead.

Meanwhile, the Karachi University Teachers' Society (KUTS) General Secretary, Dr Abid Hasnain, who also attended the meeting, said on Monday, "No, we have not agreed to the residence of Rangers on campus. We agreed, conditionally, that the rangers can be called in a time of need, to maintain law and order on campus. The rangers can not live on campus. This was not decided in the meeting. We appreciate the Sindh government's decision to withdraw rangers from all education institutions."

The meeting was chaired by VC Professor Dr Pirzada Qasim Raza Siddiqui and was attended by the KU KUTS general secretary, Faculty of Arts Dean Prof. Dr M. Shamsuddin, Faculty of Science Dean Prof. Dr Darakhshan, Faculty of Pharmacy Dean Prof. Dr Waseem, Faculty of Management Science Dean Prof. Dr M. Abuzar Wajidi, Faculty Islamic Learning Dean Dr Noori, Professor Dr Fahimuddin, Advisor Academic to VC Prof. Dr Aqeel Ahmed, Advisor Campus Security Affairs Dr Khalid Iraqi and Students' Advisor Dr Nusrat Idrees.

According to a press release, the meeting discussed the condition of law and order on campus. The role of senior teachers in maintaining peace during the last few days was highly applauded by the VC. It was however felt by the participants that it would not be possible for the teachers, alone, to look after security affairs on campus. The meeting also acknowledged that during the last 20 years, rangers with proper training have played a commendable role in maintaining a peaceful atmosphere on campus.

The press release further acknowledged that the deployment of rangers and law enforcement agencies were essential for maintaining an atmosphere of peace and fraternity.

"We agreed with the Sindh government's announcement to withdraw rangers from all educational institutions. Rangers can be called at a time of need but we are against their permanent residence in educational institution including KU." said Dr Abid Hasnain. Daily Times
