KU examination centres changed, Evening Admissions

Karachi University examination centres changed
Karachi, June 13, 2008: The fierce heat, load shedding and insufficient arrangements have forced the relocation of examination centres of the ongoing MA previous and final examinations of various departments at the Karachi University, said Examinations Controller Prof Maqsood Hussain in a notification on Thursday.

The department of Arabic has been shifted to the gymnasium hall near the KU post office, while the department of Islamic learning has been shifted to the department of applied chemistry. These centres were previously set up in shamyanas on campus. The heat and load shedding made it very difficult for students to give their exams.

On Wednesday, KU Pro-Vice Chancellor (VC) Dr Akhlaq Ahmed made an appeal to the KESC to avoid load shedding in the area during the time scheduled for examinations from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. He made this appeal during a surprise visit to the departments of Arabic, Islamic learning and mathematics. However, the KESC did not oblige, forcing the change in centres. Before this, Board of Intermediate Examinations Karachi (BIEK) Chairman Anwar Ahmedzai wrote a letter to KESC during the HSC-I and II examinations, requesting that they avoid load shedding at the exam centres during exam hours.

Coeducation system
Pakistan is an Islamic Republic and, accordingly, all the prevalent laws in our country correspond to the Islamic system of governance. But no department or institution of Pakistan complies fully with Islam. For instance, if we observe the education system in Pakistan, we will find many laws that are opposed to our religion.

Take the example of coeducation. Islam strictly disallows this system of education. The environment in a coeducation institution invites manifold evils. Girls and boys grouping together, swapping mobile numbers and email addresses and connections being established outside the college premises creates opportunities of sin. In addition, on occasions of picnics, fairs and concerts etc, they go collectively, get naps together, and are occupied in all forms of entertainment. All these acts gravely affect the modesty of a Muslim girl and boy. That is the reason why Islam has denounced coeducation. Even the modest students face numerous impediments in acquiring education in such an atmosphere. They are not able to portray their true capabilities, as they remain hesitant. Keeping all these points in mind, I would like to request the higher authorities to try their best to promote a modest society that is pure from the evil of coeducation.
