Wafaqul Madaris want ban on Facebook

Wafaqul Madaris demands permanent ban on Facebook
Rawalpindi, Aug 24: Deputy Secretary General of Wafaqul Madaris al-Arabia Pakistan Maulana Qazi Abdul Rashid while condemning continued acts of blasphemy on Facebook, has demanded a complete ban on the website.

In a statement, he said if the government can ban the electronic media for airing news going against the president then why it does not permanently ban Facebook for displaying blasphemous caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

"Is the dignity of the president was higher than that of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). If not, then the government needs to show its inclination towards Islam and block this website permanently," Maulana Abdul Rashid said. He said that ongoing catastrophes in the country were a clear signal of Almighty Allah's anger.

He urged the rulers to adopt a strong stance and quit diplomatic and trade relations with countries involved in this heinous crime. Pointing towards the decision of a US citizen to torch a copy of the Holy Qur'aan on the eve of 9/11 anniversary, he said that the government should protest it and demand action against the plotter. He warned the US and European countries to stop playing with the emotions of Muslims otherwise it would lead to clash of civilisations. The news

"I agree full with wafaq ul madaris. Our prophet is the most important person to us and we can not bear and support his indiginity and disgrace. Being muslims we should all hold protest against facebook on even allowing such pages just deleting them is not enough. They should never allow such pages to show up. They have very cleverly done this sinful act and then appoligized this is no excuse"

Floods destroy two campuses
Islamabad: Two universities campuses have been severely hit by the flood in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Farmanullah Anjam, HEC director in KP said that over 70 per cent infrastructure of the Benazir Bhutto Shaheed University in Sheringal, Upper Dir, had been devastated.

The second higher education institution damaged in the province is the Malakand University in Chakdara. At present, there is no road access to the university. Mr Anjam put the enrolment of the two universities at around 10,000.

"In the absence of classrooms and infrastructure, our immediate challenge is how to ensure continuity of their classes for which HEC has already initiated deliberations," Mr Anjam said.

The students of Malakand division were yet to recover from the repercussions of the military operation, and only with the help of USAID the HEC was able to bear their education costs. After military operation, the government had waved off tuition fee of all students from the area.

"Now the HEC being already in serious financial crisis I really don't know what is going to happen to the universities because we are facing a shortage of funds even to meet our recurring expenditures," Mr Anjam said.

He said the people of Malakand division had to suffer losses as a result of military operation against Taliban and the flood had destroyed the standing crops.

The HEC official said a special committee had been formed to collect data about university students in flood-affected areas in the four provinces.

"Since people in the flood-affected areas have lost everything, their crops and businesses will not be in position support their youths studying in universities," the official said.

He said at present he was not in a position to say how the commission would be helping students from the affected areas. Dawn

QASMS aimed at revenue generation: QAU spokesman
Islamabad: The basic purpose of establishment of QASMS is to brainstorming the students and to generate revenue, said Nadeem Yasir, spokesman for QAU. "QAU is a public sector university and so for earning money of its own, but now it is not possible for it to generate revenue of its own as it spends a lot on students and teachers especially for their Ph D programme," he said. Yasir said with a rapid decline in academic standard of MBA department, where mostly faculty members were visiting lecturer, QAU administration planned to establish QASMS taking HEC and IPDF (Ministry of Finance), and all faculty members including ASA of QAU on board. "With a lot of institutions on board, how could ASA feared non-transparency in establishment of QASMS," he said, adding QAU administration had never taken any decision without consensus and it would never do this.

The QAU spokesman said whenever QAU administration floated an idea of expansion of the university setup and management; ASA jumped quickly into it reacting against the proposals for no reasons, instead of helping QAU out and give positive suggestions. "If QASMS would be established, the members of ASA feared that their identity and individuality in the campus would decrease with arrival of new faculty members in QASMS," sources concluded.
