BISE lahore prize dististritution mistake

BISE fixes responsibility for mistake
Lahore, Aug 23:The inquiry committee, formed to probe the issue of awarding a medal and cash prize to an ineligible student for third position in the commerce group in the recently declared intermediate results of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Lahore, has submitted its report to the board chairman.

The committee, formed on August 15, was directed to submit its report within 48 hours, however, it had sought extra time owing to some technicalities.

It is learnt that after recording statements of computer section staff and checking computer record with the help of an expert, the committee submitted its report on Saturday.

According to sources, the committee has found computer section responsible for the mistake. Interestingly, a computer programmer has already been suspended by the BISE chairman for negligence.

It is pertinent to mention here that on August 15, a private candidate Syed Hasan Raza Kazmi, who had secured 914 marks, was awarded a bronze medal and Rs 10,000 for achieving third position in the Commerce Group (Boys) in intermediate exams 2009 despite the fact that in the group, a student, Mohsin Hassan of Punjab College of Commerce, had secured 915 marks.

After the prize distribution ceremony, the BISE authorities admitted the "mistake" and awarded the prize to the eligible candidate.

The services of BISE Lahore's Deputy Chief Secrecy Officer Muhammad Bashir and Computer Programmer Waheedur Rehman were also suspended the same day on account of showing gross negligence.

The sources said that for the last two years, the BISE authorities had computerised the procedure to determine the positions which was earlier done manually. They said it was only because of the change that the problem occurred as in the manual process, involving various officials, there were little chances of such a mistake.

It is further learnt that Higher Education Acting Secretary Ahad Khan Cheema has directed Additional Secretary (Academics) Muhammad Akram Chaudhry to probe the issue on part of the department.

A department official, seeking anonymity, said the senior BISE officials would also be included in the inquiry since it was also a part of their duty to ensure transparency in the results. BISE Chairman Dr Akram Kashmiri was not available for comments. The news

Nizami urges teachers to promote Two-Nation Theory
Lahore: Chairman Nazria Pakistan Trust (NPT) and Editor-in-Chief The Nation Majid Nizami has said that teachers should play their role in informing the new generation about Nazria Pakistan and ill effects of the Indian culture, adding that freedom is the greatest blessing and slavery a scourge.

Addressing the 8th ideological workshop for the teachers organised by the NPT in collaboration with Punjab Education Department at Aiwan-e-Karkunan Tehrik-e-Pakistan on Saturday, he said Pakistan was created and survived because of its ideology.

"If we consider Muslims and Hindus one nation, then there cannot be any justification of Pakistan.

Hindus are idol worshippers and we are idol- killers and this is the difference."

Urging the teachers to indoctrinate the children with idea that Hindus and Muslims are two separate nations he said Pakistan could only be defended by acting upon the Two Nation Theory.

He said East Pakistan was separated because of stupidity; but Bangladesh is not a buffer state for India for which it has the status more or less similar to Pakistan.

Majid Nizami also remarked, "I am sure that Bangladesh will be Pakistan again," adding that Bengalis were against Ayub and Yahya Khan. Bengalis were thinking that as they had no generals, they would never come to power and resultantly, separated apart, he said.

Lamenting some newspapers for promoting Bollywood films, Nizami said Indian Muslims and Pakistanis had been influenced by the Indian culture. He maintained that Muslims had ruled the Hindus for 1000 years, a fact which they could never forget.

Pointing to the noise raised over Jaswant Singh's book, Nizami said he was a nationalist leader but Hindus did not accept nationalism either.

He said, "We have experienced the British and Hindus' slavery but you are lucky as you are born free."

He claimed that the US, Israel and India were trying to wipe out Pakistan, but if the brave Army remained awakened and the rulers kept considering India a threat, the unholy triangle could harm the nation. Replying to a question, he said it was unfortunate that people were facing acute shortage of daily items and price hike just before advent of Ramazan.

Prof Dr Humayun Ihsan claimed that Muslims ruled for more than 1,000 years but Hindus did not govern Muslims even for single day adding India was destined to break up in near future.

Mian Aziz ul Haq Qureshi said Islamic state was itself a welfare state. The nation
