PMA reiterates opposition to evening classes
Karachi: The Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) has once again voiced its strong opposition to the proposal of starting an evening MBBS programme at a university, and urged the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) to reject the idea to be presented in its April 3 meeting in Islamabad.

Speaking at a press conference at the Karachi Press Club on Friday, PMA general-secretary Dr Mirza Ali Azhar said that the association had come to know that the proposal was a priority item on the meeting's agenda and would be presented by the vice chancellor of the Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences (LUMHS), Jamshoro, Prof Naushad A. Sheikh.

"Prof Sheikh will give a presentation on the subject. If this 'noble idea' is allowed to be accepted, it will spell disaster for medical education and training in Pakistan," Dr Azhar warned.

He argued that most medical colleges in the country didn't have the required infrastructure and faculty to impart proper medical education to students, and suggested that the PMDC focus on that issue rather than creating more opportunities for substandard education.

"Around 80 per cent of the 108 public and private medical colleges in the country do not fulfil the PMDC criteria for faculty and facilities. Many colleges do not have a fully-fledged faculty and lack a 500-bed teaching hospital for proper training," he said.

He observed that there was an acute shortage of teachers of basic medical sciences and there were instances where a professor was teaching the same subject at three to four medical institutions. The situation was worse for teaching medical jurisprudence, he added.

The PMA, he said, feared that once the proposal of evening medical classes was accepted, various other public and private medical colleges would gradually jump in to pick their due share in the market. "The amount of money involved in such a racket may be unimaginable," he apprehended.

"Acceptance of the proposal will result in a mushroom growth of evening medical colleges in the country where we will be producing quacks in the name of doctors. As we know that most work at hospitals including surgeries and handling the out-patient department is done in the morning. It may be anybody's guess as to how properly students could be trained in the evening," he contended.

The proposal of evening MBBS classes at LUMHS was earlier rejected by the PMDC, he said showing a letter dated Dec 10, 2010.

Referring to the previous PMA press conference on the issue, Dr Azhar informed journalists that Prof Sheikh had responded to it by claiming that the idea for evening medical classes was from the president and the prime minister. The professor, according to Dr Azhar, had also threatened to file a defamation suit against PMA office-bearers.

"If the president and the prime minister have given him such a directive, then he being the vice chancellor of a reputable medical university has the responsibility to apprise them of the fact that such an idea has never been conceived and implemented by any civilised or developed country of the world and will deteriorate the standards of medical education," he advised.Dr Azhar, on behalf of his association, once again demanded immediate removal of the LUMHS vice chancellor alleging that "he doesn't qualify for any post related to medical education".

In reply to a question, he said that the PMDC currently didn't have its total strength as there was no representation of many universities.

"Most members on the council are selected or nominated by their respective institutions and not elected as the PMDC claims.

Of the four members required to be elected from the medical community in each province, the council has representation of only Sindh province," he said. Dawn

Latest Urdu publication reorients outlook towards social issues
Karachi: The latest issue of Urdu quarterly titled 'A'ainda' has made its mark by covering most modern issues on literature that shows an upcoming qualitative change in terms of comprehension of burning issues and a view towards universe and universal questions and creativity in coverage of today's problems in literature.

The editorial titled 'Ham kahan tak chal sakain ge' written by Editor Mehmood Wajid takes into account the past trends, past standards of living, and role and question of completion in existing world. He has raised good questions about the betterment and advancement of human beings amid prevalent conditions.

The editorial notes that a meaningful living is a quite different issue instead a living without meaning and struggle with a hope of completion that could influence future generations as well.

The quarterly has a tradition to give two editorials and the second one is called 'Doosra Safah' which is written by assistant editor, Saira Ghulam Nabi who now has mooted a very relevant question about the survival of the people in a world where people were facing contradictory situations, where coexistence of countries, nations and states had become a hard nut to crack.

She notes that the war started from the day one between the classes was still going on as it involved economic interests and desires of hegemonies and monopolies.

These desires have created many hurdles for a peaceful coexistence of people as nations, communities and groups of people and even states. She warns that writers were being exploited and used by the groups working for serving interests of imperialist forces.

The writers must examine situations and in order to determine their role in rejecting or endorsing the theories being spread by certain writers and critics in developing countries. In order to identify the negative elements confusing people and writers in prevailing situations, it was the duty of the writers to critically own or disown things; especially those becoming a threat to the peace and promoting groupings and divisions amongst the writers, artistes and all those giving creativity in different forms and formats, she concludes.

The writers who have contributed in this issue gave their fresh accounts and this shows a totally fresh and latest coverage of matters on literatures of different languages. Dr Mustafa Kareem (from London) has reexamined the entire work by a giant Russian fiction writer, Chekov, in the context of his life's story. He says that Chekov had seen the worst social and economic conditions in his life. On the other hand, his mother had to leave her house due the constants threats by lenders and that shaped the entire thinking of Chekhov differently. He quotes his observations about religion. The quote says, "The So-called religious education can never do without, as it were, a little screen behind which no stranger is allowed to peep. Behind that screen children are tortured, but in front of it people smile and feel deeply moved. It is not for nothing that many divinity students become atheists."

Dr Kareem suggested that study of the works by Chekov should be done in the light of the miseries Chekhov had faced in his earlier life.

Rauf Niazi has written on the 'Narrative Paradigm' while highlighting the perspective of short story in the light of post-modernism theory. He has analysed literary works of writers while giving quotes of famous writers in the support of modern style of story writing. He highlights the quote of Alasdair McIntyre that says "Man is in his action and practice, as well as in his fictions, essentially a story telling animal."

He appreciates different styles of writing stories on the part of famous writers, but argues an element of 'story' makes a thing the 'exact story.'

The works of prominent writers; stories, poetry, translations and book reviews by Nida Fazili, Azra Asghar, Najmul Hasan Rizvi, Ishrat Baitab, Shafique Ahmd Shafique, Arman Najmi, Mumtaz Ahmed Khan, Anwar Sadeed, Ghulam Hussain Sajid, Syed Fakhruddin Bale, Saba Ekram, Iqbal Fareedi, Dr Shaheen Mufti, Syed Hamid Siraj, Shehzad Nayyar, Safdar Siddiq Razi, Syed Ahmed Shameem, Sehar Ali, Attaur Rehman Qazi, Kashif Hussain Ghaair, Tahir Naqvi, Mehmood Ahmed Qazi, Tahira Iqbal, Kami Shah, Ahmed Azad, Yaseen Ahmed, Tasneem Abidi, Jameel Yousuf and others have been included in the latest issue.
