Talking to this correspondent head of the team Dr Mohammad Ayub, Professor of Physiology, Ayub Medical College, Abbotabad, said that the team visited the college building and inspected the stock of instruments purchased for it and discussed with Vice-Chancellor of the SBBMU Professor Dr Akbar Haidar Soomro the strength of faculty and the budgetary provisions of the college.

The university has huge space and instruments and sufficient faculty in dentistry to start the classes for the first batch of candidates in the college, Professor Ayub said.

When questioned whether he was satisfied with the elements mandatory to start the classes, he replied in affirmative, saying that some dental colleges were currently working in limited space while the proposed college had a huge space to accommodate students and establish different sections.

Cambridge schools teaching pupils
Karachi: The Sindh government has formed a committee of senior educationists to "delete anti-democratic material" from the history book being taught in Cambridge schools that tout dictator General Ziaul Haq as a better leader than Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

Responding to questions from legislators in the Sindh Assembly on Wednesday, Senior Education Minister Pir Mazharul Haq said all the Cambridge schools were following the curriculum prescribed by the Cambridge System and approved by the federal Ministry of Education.

"However, the provincial government has taken notice of distorting historical facts in the Pak history book in which the profile of military dictator Ziaul Haq has been showed better than that of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto," the minister said.

He said the matter had been taken up with the federal Ministry of Education for amendments to the Pakistan history book being taught in all 'O' level schools. However, after the 18th Amendment, the curriculum has become a provincial subject and the provincial Education Department has set up a committee comprising Captain Esani, Mazharul Haq Siddiqi, Abdul Wahab, Anwar Zai and other educationists to change the course.

The minister said the curriculum of the Cambridge schools would be changed in the next academic year, warning that the licences of those schools would be cancelled that violated the government approved curriculum.

In response to another question, the education minister said there were around 1,100 non-feasible schools in Sindh, which had been approved by the previous regime on political grounds. The news
