SC seeks comment from UVAS on 'discrimination' complaint

LAHORE, Aug 29: A three-member bench of the Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday sought comments from the management of the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS) to review whether or not it had discriminated a candidate for the post of associate professor. The bench, consisting of Justice Falak Sher, Justice Tassadduq Hussain Jillani and Justice Chaudhry Ijaz Ahmad, passed the order on the petition of Muhammad Aslam Mirza who had alleged that he was a victim of discrimination and the university did not given him the post of associate professor due to discrimination. He said the university had advertised a job in the Department of Animal Sciences on February 23, 2006, but had denied him the job though he had fulfilled the criteria. During proceedings, the bench found that the university administration had appointed its employee, Anjum Khaliq, an assistant professor, and had turned down the appellant's application on technical grounds. Attique Ahmad, registrar of the university, told the court that Mirza had been refused because he did not follow the laid down procedure while applying for the job. The court adjourned the case and allowed the registrar to come up with all the information regarding the case within 15 days. Daily times
