Action against corrupt PU employees | NCA exhibition

Stern action against corrupt PU employees
Lahore, Aug 08, 2008: The Punjab University administration has decided to taken stern action against the corrupt university employees who are trying to blackmail the administration to stop enquiries against them.

According to a press statement, the PU administration strongly believed that the Jamiat students who had been expelled from the university and their patron teachers were behind the activities. It has been made clear in the press release that the professional blackmailers and corrupt elements would face cases and university administration would accept no pressure from the countable culprits.

The statement added, "all members of late Muhammad Munir Chughtai deputy registrar administration have issued a statement with their signatures and thumb impressions saying that the sad demise of Munir Chughtai was natural and the high ups of the varsity have nothing to do in this regard."

On the other hand, the VC and all the other officers have been very kind to him and to his family, they said, adding only those people were playing politics on the sad demise who had tried their best to snatch the seat of deputy registrar from Chughtai.

Meanwhile, in a press statement, PU chapter Islami Jamiat Talaba's nazim Zahid Naveed said that the death of Deputy Registrar Munir Chughtai had created confusion about the university administration in the minds of students and teachers.

He alleged that the administration was continuously creating disturbance for the students and employees but no action had been taken against it. He appealed to Governor/ Chancellor Salman Taseer and Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to hold an independent committee to investigate the death of Munir Chughtai and take strict action against the culprits.

PU Registrar Prof Dr Muhammad Naeem Khan said late Munir Chughtai had died a natural death but it was unfortunate that some groups within the university were exploiting the situation for political motives.

"He (late Chughtai) was one of our great colleagues but it is unfortunate his death is being politicized", he added. The News

Exhibition promoting peace begins at NCA
Lahore: An exhibition by National College of Arts (NCA) Fine Arts Department Head Bashir Ahmad opened at NCA on Wednesday. The exhibition aims to promote the peace process and opposes atomic war and terrorism.

The exhibition is being held in memory of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki reduced to rubble by atom bombs during World War 11. The exhibition includes sculptures and paintings which negate war and violence. One sculpture depicts two female figures that have melted with each other due to radiation from the atomic bomb. The sculpture is built on a small pedestal carrying a statement condemning war. In another sculpture a Sumo wrestler, a symbol of power in Japan, is portrayed suffering, which shows how the atom bomb destroyed life in these cities, and how people still suffer from the after-effects of the explosion.

In a painting 'Buddha Under the Mushroom of Atom', the history of human barbarianism has been told. It shows that in the beginning, human beings used to use swords and arrows to capture territories to increase their power and wealth, depicting how man steadily developed weapons of mass destruction and destroyed humanity for its greed. The Buddha is painted black, giving an impression that humans are searching for peace within conflict.

Ahmed said that World War II had affected the world. He said, "My message is for all human beings to live in peace and work for the betterment of humanity. The west has adopted the qualities of Muslims, and we have forgotten the message of peace. We should live in peace so that the world can be made worth living in." The exhibition will continue for a week. Daily Times
