Government Islamia colleges principals removal issue

SPLA seeks reinstatement of college principals
Karachi, June 12: Describing the removal of the principals of the Government Islamia Science and the Government Islamia Arts and Commerce colleges as "a conspiracy to weaken the case of the college's building being heard in court", the SPLA has urged the Sindh education department to immediately reinstate the two principals to ensure a peaceful atmosphere in colleges across Sindh.

Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) made this demand in a strongly worded statement issued here on Thursday.

In the statement, the central office-bearers of SPLA (Karachi chapter), Prof Ather Hussain Mirza, Prof Muzaffar Ali Rizvi, Prof Iftikhar Azmi, Prof (Dr) Rasheed, Prof Ummat-us-Sami and Prof Shamim Bhutto, said that the provincial education department had removed the principal of the Islamia Arts and Commerce College, Prof Mubeen Baig, and the principal of the Islamia Science College, Prof Mubin Khan, despite the fact that a case of Islamia College building was pending in court and both the heads of the colleges, who are familiar with the facts of the case, were taking a keen interest in saving the college building and were working in the interest of thousands of students of the two colleges. The leaders of SPLA said that it was beyond their comprehension why both the principals had been replaced by much junior associate professors.

They also criticised the handover of the management of the Govt Girls Shireen Jinnah College to a non-governmental organisation.

They said that the government had spent millions of rupees on the construction of the college, but the college building had been rented out to the NGO for a mere Rs800 a month.

Now the same NGO had awarded the contract of the canteen of the college to a contractor for Rs4,000 a month, they said.

They urged the government to immediately reinstate both Islamia colleges' principals and get back the control of Shireen Jinnah College from the NGO.

They warned that SPLA which had suspended its protest movement would be forced to review its decision if their demands were not met. Dawn
