Education minister's wife made additional education secretary
Karachi, April 27: The Government of Sindh has appointed the wife of Senior Education Minister Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq, Shahnaz Mazhar, as additional secretary education.

A notification to this effect was issued by Services and General Administration and Coordination Department. The notification stated that Shahnaz Mazhar has been appointed as additional secretary education for academic on a vacant seat.

Sources revealed that when the PPP came into power in 2008, Shahnaz , who was an assistant lecturer at the time, was given an out of turn promotion from Grade 17 to Grade19. Subsequently, she was transferred and posted at the Pakistan High Commission in England as counselor for welfare.

Pir Mazhar's spokesperson Zafar told The News that after serving three years at the Pakistan High Commission in UK, Shahnaz Mazhar returned to the country, where, after reporting to the Education Department Sindh, she was made additional secretary education academic and training on a vacant post.

The spokesperson regretted that a section of the media was twisting the facts by reporting a four-year-old case of alleged victimisation.

Media reports claimed that when Ms Shahnaz Mazhar was an assistant lecturer at the Lyari Degree Girls College, she was given show cause notice by Principal Perveen Nazeer Soomro over extended absence.

The reports claimed that when the PPP came into power, Principal Soomro was transferred to Benazirabad (formerly Nawabshah) as an act of victimisation. She was disheartened by the alleged victimisation, and subsequently filed for an early retirement. The news
