Admissions in medical colleges on reserved seats challenged
Rawalpindi: A female student from Dera Ghazi Khan and daughter of a federal government employee has moved the Lahore High Court (LHC) challenging the admissions in medical colleges on the reserved seats saying the process was concluded before the intermediate results were announced.

"There are seats reserved in the medical colleges of Punjab for the children of federal government employees but this year the process for granting admissions on these seats was completed in August whereas the results for pre-medical were announced by the Punjab examination boards in September," Muntaha Ayesha, the petitioner, stated before the Rawalpindi bench of the LHC.

Justice Ijaz Ahmed of the LHC on Monday issued notices to vice chancellor of University of Health Sciences (UHS) also chairman board for admissions in medical institutions in Punjab and sought his written comments by December 22.

The petitioner through her lawyer Mian Abdul Rauf cited the federal secretary health ministry, director general, health services, deputy director, medical education and research, VC UHS and secretary Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) as respondents.

Ayesha, daughter of an employee of ministry of defence, in her petition said the federal government had reserved 67 seats for the daughters of employees of public servants in Fatima Jinnah Medical College, Lahore. When she applied for admission on reserved seats she was informed by the ministry of health that the process of selecting candidates had been finalized.

The petitioner, who obtained 964 marks out of 1100, said the ministry had invited applications for the seats on August 5 and fixed August 20 as last date for submission of relevant documents whereas the pre-medical results in Punjab were announced on September 4.

"The board for MBBS admissions in the government medical colleges in Punjab issued final list of the candidates on November 30 but the list does not mention the nominees from the federal government," the petitioner said.

Separately Ayesha has also submitted that she had also not been considered for the seats reserved for the six under-developed districts of D G Khan, Muzaffargarh, Rajanpur, Lodarah, Bhakkar and Lyyah.

The petitioner has prayed to the court to nullify the list of the candidates for the reserved seats and ask the authorities concerned to consider her for the reserved seats. Dawn

Book launching ceremony at IIUI
Islamabad: International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI) on Wednesday organised a book launching ceremony of renowned Malaysian scholar Dr Chanda Muzaffar, 'Muslims today: Changes within, challenges without'. IIUI Rector Prof Fateh Muhammad Malik presided over the ceremony. IIUI President Dr Anwar Hussain Siddiqui and Iqbal International Institute Executive Director Dr Mumtaz Ahmed were also present on the occasion. Some diplomats including Iranian ambassador Mashaallah Shakri and IIUI faculty members, administrative officers, staff and a large number of students attended the ceremony. Dr. Chandra also delivered a public lecture on this occasion.

Dr Chandra said that the youth of Muslim Ummah needed to do more work significantly to create their impact on other segments of the society. He said that youth are the backbone of Muslim society and the western world has imposed hegemony to create unrest in the Muslim world for which their controlled economy is responsible.

He added that it would be appropriate that the relevance of the Quranic message of 'Tauhid' may be revived. As a unifying worldview, Tauhid contains at least five important beliefs including common spiritual origin, mission and destiny of the whole of humanity, organic unity of existence of the immanent and the transcendent, of life and death, of this world and the hereafter, of man and nature, of individual and community.

Militancy in the Muslim world is due to injustices. Militancy in Iraq and Afghanistan has forced US forces to decide for withdrawal. According to the US forces the militants are visionless, said Dr Chandra.

He also spoke on US hegemonic attitude and predicted that it will no longer live on this earth. He quoted various examples from the history when super powers of old times vanished and were sent to the dust bin of history. Like wise in Chandra Muzaffar's view US has to face similar fate very soon.

Dr Chandra Muzaffar added that China is getting more and more power to play a leading role in the world. He also appreciated Iranian determination in this regard. He hoped that Pakistani youth shall continue their march on same pattern.

Prof Fateh Muhammad Malik in his presidential address said that Dr Chandra in his book has very simply described about the principle of 'Touheed'. He further said that 'Touheed' is only pillar of Islam and Muslims of the world need to unite them according to this universal principle given by Islam.

He said especially at this time of challenge, uncertainty and conspiracies, the Muslims are in dire need of adopting these thinking of Dr Chandra Muzaffar. Dr Anwar Hussain Siddiqui in his introductory remarks said that the Int'l Islamic University always welcomes to hold such kind of activities for spreading knowledge and awareness about true face of Islam in the society. He said that after study of Dr Chandra's book, it is revealed that Muslims can use their youth as messengers of peace and harmony not only in their societies but all over the world as well.

Students find registering online burdensome
Rawalpindi: Glitches in the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education's (BISE) mandatory online registration are leaving private schools and students frustrated as they fear they would miss next year's examinations.

This year the BISE has made online registration of candidates for appearing in examinations mandatory, saying the postal application forms would not be accepted. In a statement, the board said those not registering online would not be issued roll number slips to sit in next year's examinations.

Last week the Association of Private Schools in Rawalpindi division protested outside the BISE office, asking it to retain the option of registration by postal service and implement the online system gradually. Dawn

"It has been difficult for private institutes and private candidates from remote areas to access internet and get themselves registered online for next year's higher and secondary examinations," Abrar Ahmed Khan, president of the association, told .

He said the new system was too slow to download application and registration forms.

Apart from slow speed, the candidates of remote areas have to come to city areas for registration, added Malik Iftikhar Ahmed, who had come from Jhelum.

Official sources said the system had not been started by the nine examination boards in the province, adding that the Punjab government launched it and directed them to register students online.

The online registration is facing many other problems. Disabled candidates are exempted from registration fee, but it is being collected online, sources said. Similarly fee for children of BISE employees was also being collected online, though rules had been relaxed for them.

The students who are twins face strange predicament " the online registration system fails to accept the same date of birth and parentage the second time. Students from other examination boards cannot be registered online.

Similarly the Rawalpindi board has asked students of Murree, on winter holidays in December and January, to get themselves registered otherwise their roll number slips will not be issued. Students living abroad and children of Afghan refugees also could not be registered as their identity cards carried different digits than normal cards.

Sources said over three million students would be registered online but the system was being run on only one or two servers in the office of Lahore examination board. Additionally there is no universal helpline for troubleshooting to address complaints.

Mohammad Sarfaraz Ahmed, BISE's data processing officer assigned to address complaints about online registration, said the board was trying to add more servers to increase speed for online registration. "To facilitate students and administration of schools we have sent field officers to each of 21 tehsils of Rawalpindi division. These expert officers not only guide school managements on how to get registered online but also address problems students face in far off areas." Dawn

Rawalpindi: Around 830 girl students enrolled in Government Nusrat Girls Elementary School, New Shakrial, Rawalpindi, are studying under the open sky in severe cold weather.

A primary and an elementary school were merged and housed in a four-room dilapidated building. For the last many years neither there is drinking water nor the facility of toilets in the school. There are a total of 380 girl students in primary section, while 450 students in elementary section, and both the sections were allocated two rooms each.

Around 200 students of primary and elementary sections from class 1 to 8 enjoy rooms while others are studying under the open sky. Nursery class remains under the open sky in extreme weather. The condition of available four rooms is also not good because all windows are broken.

Government Nusrat Girl Elementary School's Deputy Headmistress Riffat Shaheen said that they have only two rooms for middle school in which hardly 100 students can be accommodated. The other students remain under the open sky to bear severe cold. "We have covered a portion of school with 'tarpaal' to avoid cold weather but it could not protect children from severe cold," she said.

She said that there is no drinking water facility for students. "We take classes turn-by-turn in the classrooms because of severe cold, she said.

Primary school teachers Zamira Khatoon and Nabila Kausar said that they are facing difficulties because elementary school was shifted here in September 2000. How it could be possible to adjust 830 students in a school having capacity of 380 students, they said.

Majority of students complain of severe cold weather when studying under the open sky. Parents strongly react against the bad situation, they said.

When contacted District Education Officer (DEO) Primary & Elementary Naseem Akhtar, she admitted the facts about Government Nusrat Girl Elementary School. She said that majority of buildings are in dilapidated condition. "We are merging dilapidated building schools with better condition school buildings, she said. I have already conveyed the whole situation about schools to the higher authorities, who have assured to take positive steps," she said.

Parents complained that their children are suffering from flu and fever due to severe cold. They said that how the children could sit on earth for five hours under the open sky in cold weather. At least authorities should arrange basic facilities including rooms, toilets and drinking water for students in the school, they demanded. The news
