NED completes renovation of old campus
Karachi: NED University of Engineering & Technology has renovated its old campus according to the specification of the Sindh Department of Culture and Heritage, and Governor Sindh Dr Ishrat-ul-Ebad will inaugurate the building on Friday (tomorrow).

Registrar NED, Engineer Javed Aziz Khan said that his university had taken several pains to restore the building to its past glory without adding anything that could be an eyesore to the aesthetic taste of the students, teachers and visitors. "We have used building material that conformed to the heritage standards and restored the building without compromising on its actual architecture. We have used cement and lime as it was used when the building was built," Khan elaborated.

The old campus of NED houses Architecture and Planning Department, a five-year course that is highly popular among the students who prefer to study the programme to learn the finesse of architecture.

Khan refuted the allegations from certain quarters that the building was not used in a proper manner and said that the contributions of the NED Architecture and Planning Department are well-known. It had obtained an important milestone by getting Shikarpur Heritage City declared as an important site by the World Monument Fund.

He further said that the department's works in Karachi's urban planning, infrastructure and built environment are appreciated locally and abroad. It has produced worthwhile research publications, including the only peer reviewed journal of architecture in Pakistan. In the domains of heritage, it has been declared the brand office of UNESCO (University and Heritage Programme). It is also the national secretariat of the International Council of Monuments and Sites.

The NED Architecture Department has also undertaken many monitoring and instruction exercises from the standpoint of professional validity and public interest. The Karachi Elevated Expressway, Lyari Expressway, Karachi Development Plan 2030, Resettlement Schemes and many other schemes were coordinated by the NED Department, he concluded. The News

'Libraries to get CCTV systems'
Karachi: The Sindh department of culture and tourism will install modern security systems and close-circuit television cameras at all of the province's central libraries and tourist attractions, Sindh Culture and Tourism Minister Sassui Palejo has announced.

Ms Palejo was speaking while chairing the final session of a two-day meeting held to review the performance of the department over the last year. During the meeting, officers in charge of various sections of the department provided details regarding the performance of their sections.

The minister said that in order to avoid the occurrence of any untoward incidents, citizens would not be allowed to bring weapons into the department's central libraries, and a system would be put in place in order to block 'inappropriate' websites on the libraries' computers. She said a proposal in this regard was under consideration.

Ms Palejo said the objective of the new policies was to provide a friendly and inviting environment for visiting poets, writers, teachers, students and journalists.

She added that a "modern card system" would also be introduced at the culture department's libraries.

At the meeting, the minister was informed that the department had organised 72 cultural programmes last year, while 27 had been organised in the year before that.

Events that were highlighted include programmes for the anniversary of noted singer Zarina Baluch, an All Pakistan Sindhi-Urdu Mushaira, exhibitions of pictures in five major cities on the occasion of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto's death anniversary, the inaugural All Pakistan Literary Conference and the establishment of the Freedom Fighters Gallery at the Sindh Museum.

Ms Palejo asserted that the culture department used to publish three books on noted personalities every year, and that the present government had published 16 books during its one year in office.

She added that the government had also regularised the services of 59 ad-hoc employees of her department, and employees whose services had been terminated would be restored after they pass a qualifying test, as directed by the court.

She said that research activities at the department had been expanded and chairs had been established in various universities in the names of prominent personalities.

She added that steps had been taken for the welfare of artists, including helping to pay for medical treatment and provision of stipends. App
