VCs of Sindh universities support HEC devolution
Karachi: Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah has made it clear that till the process of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) devolution completed, the federal government was responsible for providing funds for up to two years.

He assured Vice Chancellors of the universities that there should be no apprehension about funds.

Regarding allocation of funds and budget, he said with regard to all the subjects which were to be devolved, the federal government had consulted with provinces about allocation of funds.

Qaim presided over a meeting of Vice Chancellors of various universities functioning in public sector throughout Sindh province at the Chief Minister's House.

Vice Chancellors (VCs) of public universities of Sindh announced the full support to the devolution of the Higher Education Commission (HEC).

The announcement was made by Vice Chancellor of Karachi University Prof Dr. Pirzada Qasim Raza Siddiqui while addressing a press conference at the Chief Minster's House.

Senior Minister for Education Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq, Minister for Information Sharjeel Inam Memon, Secretary Education Ms. Naheed Shah Duranni, VCs and representatives of public universities of Sindh, including Liquat University of Health Sciences Jamshoro, University of Sindh Jamshoro, Mehran University of Engineering and Technology Jamshoro, NED University of Engineering and Technology Karachi, Shah Abdul Latif University of Khairpur Mirs, Sindh Agriculture University Tando Jam and others were also present on the occasion.

He said that Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah called a meeting of VCs in which he discussed the pros and cons of HEC devolution and establishment of the Sindh Higher Education Commission.

He said that the VCs had made Sindh Chief Minister clear that they were not opposing the devolution but had some reservations over the funding and autonomy of universities.

The VC said that autonomy of universities should not be hurt and funding should not be stopped in case of devolution of HEC because if funding was stopped how they would pay salaries to the employees and how they would continue capacity building.

Pirzada said that the Chief Minister Sindh had assured that if the federal government stopped the funding for some reasons, Sindh government would provide funding to all public universities.

On the occasion, Senior Minister for Education Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq said the VCs of all public universities had reposed confidence in Sindh government regarding the devolution of higher education.

He announced the establishment of the Sindh Higher Education Commission and said that Education Department was doing homework in this regard. He said that the government would take on board all VCs of public and private universities regarding the establishment of a high standard Provincial Higher Education Commission.

He said that ex-chairman HEC along some other officers were carrying out propaganda that if HEC was devolved, the education of the country would destroy. Daily times

KU students, teachers protest HEC devolution
Karachi: The unilateral decision of the government to devolve the HEC has been drawing criticism from all the stakeholders, as the students and teachers of the University of Karachi (KU) joined the ranks of the stiff opposition to the unpopular plan and brought out a procession to prove their point of view on Saturday.

A large number of students, accompanied by their teachers, assembled outside the Administration building and marched towards the KU Silver Jubilee Gate. The protesters were carrying Pakistani flags and chanting slogans: "One Pakistan. One HEC", "We reject the devolution of HEC", etc.

Two students from the Department of Sociology - Sabir Hussain and Wali Rahman said that they participated in the procession because they believe that the devolution (of HEC) was entirely wrong. "We believe that HEC is an integral part of the federal government but it is free to perform its duties. The provincial governments are unable to control the educational boards (SSC and HSC) so how can they run the HEC? It is simply a political maneuver from the government and it reeks of corruption and nepotism," they said.

Ayesha Farooqui, a student of English Department, described the planned devolution as "a newest form of corruption that will grease the palms of the government loyalists (Jialas) who are disheartened that no bucks are coming their way". Miss Farooqui accused the government for acting like a small time wayward trader that has no vision except making quick profits without realizing the long term implications. "The government is adopting the adage of 'make hay while sun shines', as they are not sure when their sun (government) will set. Hence they are in the race to plunder without realizing the lethal effects to the education sector," she said bluntly.

Speakers at the procession severely criticised Sindh Education Minister Pir Mazharul Haq for his derogatory remarks against Prof Dr Atta-ur-Rahman, who is highly respected in the world fraternity of scientists, and advised him (Pir Mazhar) to educate himself first.

Commenting on the HEC devolution issue, Dean Faculty of Arts, Prof Dr Zafar Iqbal, said that HEC has indeed performed well except when it tried to go beyond its mandate. "HEC should not have proceeded with checking the degrees of the parliamentarians. After all the universities have to check the degrees on the request of the HEC. Secondly, HEC sometimes failed miserably to do justice with the premier institutions like KU. Universities established in one or two bungalows were given preference over the larger public sector universities. The pay and perks of the HEC staff was inflated but we cannot annihilate them (HEC) like this," Dr Iqbal pointed out.

Dr Iqbal suggested that HEC should be retained as a central regulatory authority with certain changes. "The luxury (a byword in the HEC) should end and the staff should be hired from public sector universities on merit and without any undue preference. Funding of the private universities should be stopped as there is no logic behind it. And, of course, the Chairman of the HEC should be a retired professor from a public sector university," he said.

President Karachi University Teachers Society (KUTS) Dr Abid Hasnain made it clear that any decision about the HEC should be taken in consultation with the teachers body i.e. All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA). "We at the KU have long been protesting against the regulatory authority of the HEC. Currently, the government's actions seem to be shrouded in ambiguity and we cannot make our move unless we are sure what the issue is. FAPUASA has been in session and its decision in this regard will be made public on Sunday (today) and until then we are crossing our fingers," he said. The news
