PU dean a 3rd division holder Teachers demand action against unlawful appointment
Lahore: It is for the first time in history of
prestigeous Punjab University since its establishment in October 1882, a teacher
holding a third division in his Bachelor of Science (BSc.) degreee has been
appointed Dean, Institute of Education and Research (IER). Other contenders for
the job were more qualified having a better academic background. Their names
were also sent to Punjab Governor who is also Chancellor of the University, but
were not considered for the appointment. When contacted, Governor's spokesman
Farrukh Shah said definitely facts had been concealed in the panel summary for
deanship, otherwise the Chancellor always firmly believed in supremacy of merit
and rule of law. Another astonishing fact also revealed that Muhamamd Iqbal, the
Dean, did matriculation in arts from Multan Board vide roll No. 45219 in 1968,
and surprisingly passed intermediate examination in pre-medical from the same
board in 1971. Later, he got a third division in BSc. from PU vide roll No.
40746 in 1973. He was lucky enough to get admission to master of science in
Botany in PU with third division.
A number of IER faculty members had also
lodged several complaints to Vice Chancellor of the Punjab University Prof. Dr.
Mujahid Kamran against him for his alleged malpractice, irregularities and
harassment of lady teachers but no action was taken as per law. PU teachers
Sunday demanded of the Punjab Governor, the Chief Minister and Lahore High Court
Chief Justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif to take cognizance of his unlawful
appointment and a competent teacher be appointed as Dean on merit besides
holding a thorough probe into the allegations levelled against him by faculty

Govt gears up to launch BS (Honours) in 26 colleges
Lahore: The Punjab higher education department is fine tuning its
ambitious programme of launching four-year honours degree programme in 26
colleges as well as setting up board of governors (BoGs) to run these colleges
The department is planning to launch four to five honours
degree programmes, including one information technology related programme in
each college. It has sensitised the principals of the respective colleges to
assess their requirements in terms of laboratories, libraries and human
resources to launch these programmes.
The Higher Education Council,
represented by vice-chancellors of various universities, is meeting on Tuesday
(June 22) to finalise the implementation of the BS (Honours) programme in the
selected colleges from the next academic session.
In the meanwhile, the
higher education department is asking the respective colleges' principals and
directors as well as commissioners and district coordination officers to propose
names of persons, who can be nominated as members of the BoGs. "The proposed
BoGs will be able to take quick decisions in academic matters including hiring
of qualified faculty members. They will also be given powers to generate
revenue," says higher education secretary Ahad Khan Cheema.
said the BoGs would not be able to generate resources from students' fees
because they would not be authorised to enhance tuition fees. "The selected
colleges' proposed BoGs' financial worries had already been eased out by working
out salary cost for new teachers and allocated Rs250 million for this purpose.
Around Rs10 million will be given as an additional grant along with the existing
budget to each of the selected 26 (16 boys and 10 girls) colleges," Mr Cheema
With regard to the launching of the BS (Honours) programme, the
higher education department had already adopted the Higher Education Commission
(HEC) courses and decided that the students would be assessed through a mixed
system of internal and external examinations.
The Higher Education
Council's sub-committee headed by Prof Dr Muhammad Nizamuddin had already agreed
that the internal assessment of honours degree programme students would have 40
per cent weightage, while the external evaluation by affiliating university
would have weightage of 60 per cent.
Though the higher education
secretary says that the selected 26 colleges in 12 districts had Ph.D and M.Phil
faculty members, the Affiliation Committee of the Punjab University (PU) had
inspected 19 out of 26 colleges for the launch of one honours degree programme
each and reported that 10 colleges did not require labs for proposed honours
programmes in the subjects of English, Urdu, Islamic Studies, economics and
political science. The remaining nine colleges, where honours programme in
chemistry, physics, mathematics, botany, zoology, psychology and mass
communication had been proposed for launching, needed massive upgradation of
infrastructure. Similarly, 14 colleges needed more faculty members for the
launch of honours programme.
In case of launching four to five honours
programmes in the selected 26 colleges, PU sources said each college would be
required to massively upgrade its all facilities including classrooms, labs,
equipment, libraries and faculty.
Sources also expressed their
apprehensions about the affiliation of these colleges' honours programmes with
different universities offering varying standards. There are also issues with
regard to evaluation of students in the semester system as well as a college's
affiliation with two universities – for regular degree and postgraduate
programmes and honours programme.
The higher education secretary says
the department has plans to get these 26 colleges affiliated to seven or eight
universities including a couple of private universities and degree-awarding
Besides three existing affiliating varsities – PU;
Bahauddin Zakariya University (BZU), Multan; and Islamia University, Bahawalpur
(IUB); the higher education department is planning to get some of the 26
colleges affiliated to the University of Sargodha, University of Gujrat, private
sector's Forman Christian College (FCC), a chartered university, and Lahore
School of Economics.
However, when contacted, FCC Rector Prof Dr Peter H
Armacost said it would not be possible for the university to affiliate Punjab
government colleges for BS (Honours) programme. "The FCC is currently striving
to get accreditations from the United States and the United Kingdom," he said.
Stating that the FCC's charter does not allow it to affiliate any
college till 2014, Prof Armacost said that it would grant affiliation to only
those colleges that would come up to the FCC standards.
official also said that the PU had launched semester programme at its
masters' classes and almost 75 per cent of them had so far reverted to the
annual examination system. "It will be very difficult to run honours degree
programme in public sector colleges for want of resources, qualified staff and
proper teaching, assessment and monitoring," he observed.
Of 26 selected
government colleges, 19 are currently affiliated with the PU, four with the BZU
and three with the IUB.
The Punjab University affiliated colleges are:
Government College for Women, Samanabad, Lahore; Government College of Science,
Wahdat Road, Lahore; Government Islamia College, Civil Lines, Lahore; Government
M.A.O. College, Lahore; Government Islamia College for Women, Cooper Road,
Lahore; Government Fatima Jinnah College for Women, Choona Mandi, Lahore;
Government Queen Mary College for Women, Lahore; Government College, Attock;
Government Postgraduate College, Asghar Mall, Rawalpindi; Government Gordon
College, Rawalpindi; Government Postgraduate College for Women, Satellite Town,
Rawalpindi; Government Postgraduate College, Chakwal; Government College for
Women, Chandni Chowk, Sargodha; Government College, Samanabad, Faisalabad;
Government College for Women, Madina Town, Faisalabad; Government College,
Satellite Town, Gujranwala; Government Zamindar College, Gujrat, and Government
Murray College, Sialkot.
The colleges affiliated with the BZU are:
Government College, Bosan Road, Multan; Government College for Women, Kutchery
Road, Multan; Government College, Sahiwal; and Government College, Dera Ghazi
The colleges affiliated with the IUB are: Government S.E. College,
Bahawalpur; Government Sadiq Degree College for Girls, Bahawalpur; and
