MBBS students seek justice from CJ
Islamabad: The future doctors, MBBS 3rd year students from Mohi-ud-Din Islamic University (MIMU), have sought Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry's intervention into what they believe injustice being meted out to them by the administration.
The successful students contended in their application to the CJ that Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) is adamant to re-conduct the previous year exam, result of which was declared through official gazette.
"76 per cent students passed the exam", but they all are being forced to re-appear though the new academic year is in progress since April 4, 2011.
In their plea, they pointed out that the university is following PMDC Executive Body's instruction for re-organising the exam despite its (Council) own inspectors observed that the successful students did a marvellous job.
The PMDC asked the university for fresh examination in Anatomy-II paper while declaring the result null and void, the students of MIMU's Mirpur, AJK college, wrote in the application.
As the plea is attached with documents, the PMDC inspectors remarked, "the students are very competent and compared them with the students of international (global) level," that they passed it odds.
"We plead the honourable CJ of Pakistan to take suo moto action and provide us with the justice as soon as possible. The court is required to consider our present result, our precious time, current study in 3rd year and future career," it reads.
The male and female students, numbering around 3-4 dozen, also demonstrated in front of the Jang building in Islamabad inviting the media attention for a resolution to their grievances.
"If the administration wants to accommodate 24 % failed students, it should not punish all and sundry forcing the successful ones, too, to conduct the exercise they have already succeeded," they said.
Asked why they did not move AJK courts, they said their college, a branch of MIMU, and the PM&DC fall the jurisdiction of the Islamabad courts and they preferred to move the CJ for a speedy justice otherwise they would fall prey to the administration.
The suo mote plea further provides "Our studying in 3rd year MBBS and future career is affected worst. Why we should be adversely affected for a crime which we have not committed."
Teachers 'should be provided plots'
Islamabad: Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) Board of Governors Member Chaudhry Khalid Mahmood Sarwar Sunday said that 'Salam Teachers Day' is useless for teachers working all over the country.
He stated this while addressing a gathering organised for the principals of schools and colleges of the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. FBISE Chairperson Shaheen Khan, Federal Directorate of Education Director General Atif Kiani, Islamabad College of Commerce, H-8, Principal Professor Zafarullah and many other educationists from government and private educational institutions were present on the occasion.
Chaudhry Khalid Mahmood Sarwar said that teachers get nothing after retirement. "There is a need to provide them with houses or plots, as many other government departments are facilitating their employees. We would try our best to provide homes to all school and college teachers," he added.
He said that in order to promote education they would launch a principals forum in which a committee comprising members from federal government, army, model and private school representatives would be formed to solve the problems of teachers and other education-related matters. The news
Moot on energy engineering at IIUI from 21st
Islamabad: Two-day workshop on Energy Engineering will be held from June 20-21, at International Islamic University (IIU). The foreign and Pakistani experts will be invited to deliver their Keynote talks, contributory lectures, and presentations in the workshop.
The topics are selected to elaborate on the theme of the workshop on power generation technologies and status about hydro-power, coal, nuclear, fossil fuels, R&D and Industrial linkage etc. In this workshop there are 5 technical sessions and 17 papers.
This workshop offers an opportunity for Engineers, Scientists, Professionals, Policymakers, Investors, faculty and students to review reasons of energy crises, remedial measures and recent developments in the energy sector. The load shedding in Pakistan has crippled industries and daily life decorated.
Loss to export is $1.3 Billion, industrial loss to economy $4 Billion. Appropriate actions are not being taken; the situation is getting worse as people fight for gas and electricity! Several lobbies work against the construction of cost efficiencies & indigenous projects of Energy and baseless controversies have been created. Pakistan is blessed with abundant energy potentials i.e. 59,000 MW potentials of hydro, 2.9 million MW solar, 346,000MW wind, 185 Billion tons of coal, 150 TCF of gas, 27.5 Billion barrels of oil etc.
Analysis of the reasons for the slow and no growth of these vital renewable potentials in Pakistan indicate that there are barriers which need to be mitigated to take immediate benefits to overcome menace of load shedding. This workshop will create awareness among the participants specially the students. The outcome of the topics, lectures, expert discussions, presentations and latest R&D on different energy systems will help public and particularly students to get to get rid of energy crises and power shortages. The experts will help us during the discussions and meetings for possible solutions on our industrial and domestic energy production goals implementation. The young engineers/professionals will be given a chance to participate in the workshop topics. The Workshop theme covers as many topics as possible, under different fields of electricity/power generation, sustainable, as well as, renewable systems and technologies. Daily times
