Central admission policy of colleges (CAP)

CAP to revise admissions' policy
Karachi, June 12, 2008: Changes in the merit criteria of the central admission policy of colleges (CAP) are on the cards as a summary in this regard has already been sent to the Secretary Education.

It has been learnt that the Director Colleges, Sindh, Rafique Siddiqi has sent a summary to the Secretary Education, Rizwan Memon for approval after which there will be changes in the merit system of the CAP.

When contacted Siddiqi, he said that "details in this regard cannot be made public unless they are finalised by the Secretary Education." He added that "it is up to the higher authorities to decide in favour of or against the summary which will be announced once it is finalised." He also said that the general public will be informed through the media about any possible developments in connection with CAP once the process is completed.

CAP was introduced some eight years ago and it surpassed the previous system under which all the powers were with the college administration and the principals. Before the introduction of CAP, there were a large number of complaints regarding the admission of certain candidates without any merit in the top colleges of Sindh. However, CAP brought some transparency in the admission of candidates on a merit basis in the first-year of college. The News

Stricter visa policies for foreign madrassah students
Karachi: The stay of thousands of foreign students studying at madrassahs in the country is under threat again, now that the visa policy has reportedly been tightened by the government of Pakistan. The step is attributed to what officials referred to as "increasing terrorist activity" in the country.

Insiders commenting on the step said that foreign students going back home during winter vacation would not be issued visas. Moreover, the visas od students whose term was expiring would also not be extended.

This has caused anxiety among students, because they will then be penalised for overstaying in the country. The government, officials said, was under immense pressure from the US to get the "madressah issue" resolved. The US government is of the view that Islamic clerics in Pakistan are the main source of disturbances, especially in tribal areas.

The Sheikh-ul-Hadis and administrator of Binnoria University International, Mufti Mohammed Naeem said, however, that Pakistan was identified as an Islamic country only because of religious seminaries and Ulema. In his view, madressahs build character and provide education in order to make students good human beings.

He also refuted the allegation levelled by Interior Minister Rahman Malik wherein the latter had blamed madressahs for terrorism. He said that the present government was continuing the policy of the previous one.

Naeem also requested that the government soften the visa policy for foreign students. Thousands of foreign students studying at madressahs are a lucrative source of revenue, and are an honour for the country, because they return to their countries as Pakistan's ambassadors, Naeem maintained.

"Yes, it should have been done lot early but unfortunately not. Pakistan is reknowned Muslim Country because of these Madrassah or extremist clerics. Actually they were against Pakistan even before its creation. It was Quaid-e-Azam who made this islamic country, who was quoted as ************ by those muslim clerics ."
