Protest over rejoining of VC continues
Hyderabad: A campaign by members of the Sindh University Teachers Association (Suta) and the Sindh University Employees Welfare Association (Sewa) against appointment of Dr Nazir Mughal as vice chancellor entered the 15th day on Friday.
Speaking to protesters outside the press club, the chiefs of Suta and Sewa, Dr Azhar Ali Shah and Ghulam Nabi Bhalai, accused the vice chancellor of violating rules by taking administrative decisions.
Dr Mughal has appointed a retired federal bureaucrat, Zahoor Afghan, as his adviser without advertising the position. Moreover, they added, no post of adviser existed and the move also violated a Supreme Court verdict against re-employment of retired employees.
Dr Mughal, they contended, had violated the University of Sindh Act
and statutes by removing the dean of commerce faculty as member
of the selection board for Dadu campus.
Allegations Denied: The Sindh University administration has termed an armed attack on Prof Amar Sindhu in Karachi stage-managed and statements by Prof Amar Sindhu and Dr Arfana Mallah fictitious.
In a statement on Friday, the university said the VC had requested the Sindh police chief to investigate the incident.
Order to place HEC under ministry suspended
Karachi: A federal government decision placing the Higher Education Commission under the ministry of professional and technical training was suspended on Friday by the Sindh High Court.
While suspending the cabinet division's memorandum regarding the placement of the HEC under the professional and technical training division, an SHC division bench called comments from the respondents - the ministry of education, HEC, cabinet division secretary and others - and put off the matter to Aug 16.
Advocate Mohammad Nadeem Sheikh moved the court through a constitutional petition against the memorandum of the cabinet division submitting that the HEC was a statutory body under the HEC Ordinance 2002.
He recalled that the Supreme Court had already passed an order in April 2011 after the assurance from the Attorney General of Pakistan that the HEC would continue to discharge its functions till the time the government introduced a fresh legislation.
The petitioner stated that despite the apex court's order the cabinet division issued the memorandum on June 8 placing the HEC as well as the Pakistan National Commission for Unesco under the professional and technical division, which was jeopardising the status of the HEC. Dawn
