Fake degree holders case
Islamabad: Facing pressure over the snail's pace action of the concerned DPOs on the fake degree holders' cases, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) meets here today (Thursday) to hear five legislators, who had requested for hearing afresh.

The electoral body, which was completed after a delay of over a year a few weeks back, with the induction of four Election Commission members, is confronted with an embarrassing situation, as not a single counterfeit degree holder could be disqualified so far.

Needless to say, after referral of cases to DPOs, the ECP is left to only wait for adoption of a process to quickly dispose of cases by presenting the lawmakers' challans to the relevant sessions' judges. The judges have been directed by the Supreme Court to decide such cases within three months. But the courts could take care of such cases, which would be referred to them.

"The ECP members are contemplating various options to exert pressure on the lethargic police officials to register FIRs and proceed against the fakers. The way, district administration is behaving is only adding to the confidence of wrong-doers. It appears the DPOs are under legislators' pressure", sources in the electoral body said.

However, the ECP's newly-appointed members have already cautioned the alleged fake degree holders that they would be given no more relaxation and the hearing slated for Thursday (today) could be last prior to a final decision on their respective cases.

The ECP members will hear the viewpoint of Dewan Ashiq Husain (NA-153), Mir Israrullah Khan Zheri, former federal minister, Ejaz Ahmad Chohan (PP-209), Syed Majida (MPA on Punjab reserved seat) and Muhammad Khan Toor (PB-18).

ECP sources said that these lawmakers had been given second chance and most probably the last chance before their cases were to be referred to the concerned DPOs for registration of FIR and presenting their challans to the concerned session judge. The police department has been dill-dallying with regards to the nearly two dozen cases of fake degree holders, the electoral body had referred to the relevant DPOs.

Students give vent to their emotions through posters
Rawalpindi: The Rawalpindi Arts Council (RAC) has planned various exhibitions and competitions in connection with the celebrations of Pakistan Independence Day and a poster competition in this regard was organised at the RAC.

The theme of the poster competition was 'Quaid-i-Azam and the current situation of Pakistan.' The students were invited to RAC to paint their thoughts and were given three hours to depict whatever they can perceive about the theme. Students strength were less as compared to the last year's competition because of summer vacations and Ramazan, but still 15 paintings were put on display here on Wednesday. The paintings were judged by renowned Islamic Calligraphist Azeem Iqbal and Mahmood Ali. They judged all the posters on the concepts, techniques and drawings.

Azeem Iqbal said that a poster should be understood by the onlooker within 13 seconds. "If the concept is not getting across within these seconds and too much concepts merged together then that's not a perfect poster. One has to be clear and concise with a strong message sent across within seconds," he added.

The medium required for the competition was poster colours, but some students used other mediums like oil and crayons to create variety in their paintings.

Sadia Munsif, a student of Government Postgraduate College for Women, Sixth Road Rawalpindi was awarded 1st prize, Zeeshan Bhatti of Rawalpindi College of Commerce was awarded 2nd prize, Mohammad Younis Brohi of Rawalpindi Arts Council was awarded 3rd and Hamza Bilal of Sir Syed Academy Rawalpindi was awarded the 4th prize in the competition. Other participants included Sana Sadiq from RAC, Amina from Progressive Model School, Hassan Tariq, Huma Salamat from Allama Iqbal Open University, Sadaf Zeeshan, Attiya Rizwani from Government Degree College Murree Road, Noshina Kanwal, Sidra Kanwal from Government Postgraduate College for Women, Sixth Road, Durkhanai Rezwani from Government Degree College Murree Road, Bilal and Bint-e-Huda from ASF Public School Islamabad.

The poster by Sadia Munsif that received the first prize was highly appreciated by the judges, as the concept revealed in the poster was very strong. She painted the flag of Pakistan with Quaid-i-Azam's eyes in the background with the tears rolling down the flag and the whole flag was splattered with the stains of blood.

The second painting that was quite catchy in which loans were depicted as the noose around one's neck and beggar's bowl as also shown for demanding more and more aid from developed countries.

In another painting it was shown that at the time of independence each and everyone lived with harmony and now in current situation there is violence and corruption and killings everywhere in Pakistan. Though the participation in the competition was less, but still it was a great opportunity for the students to vent out their emotions and feelings who are silent witnesses of the current situation whatever is happening around them.
