PU & KU teachers denounce MUO

LAHORE, Aug 9: The Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA) and teachers of various universities protested against the Model University Ordinance (MUO) outside the press club on Wednesday. PUASA secretary Dr Mumtaz Ahmad Salik said the government wanted to implement the MUO in Balochistan University and academic staff associations would protest against this. He said the Balochistan governor wanted to implement the MUO in Balochistan universities. He said all academic staff associations would demonstrate on August 18, 2007, against the suspension orders of the teachers of Balochistan universities. PUASA secretary Asmatullah said the MUO would block the entry of poor people into government universities. He said the governor had assured that the MUO would not be implemented, but the suspension of teachers was a contradiction. He said the suspended teachers were against the MUO. Daily times

Karachi University Karachi, The Teachers' Union of the University of Karachi held a meeting here on Wednesday in which the decision of imposing the Model University Ordinance in the Balochistan University has been condemned.

The KU teachers demanded that the decision should be taken back immediately.

They stressed the fact that "by imposing such a law on a university in Balochistan, the government is trying to distinguish between universities."

The union also demanded that the vice-chancellor of the university, a retired army officer, be removed from his post.

The union urged the Higher Education Commission's Chairman Dr Attaur Rehman, to take action against this decision. Dawn
