Korean varsities offer engineering scholarships
Islamabad: Seven leading universities of Republic of South Korea have
offered 47 scholarships for Masters and doctoral studies to Pakistani students.
The offer was made by Shin Un, Ambassador of South Korea, in a meeting
with Shahnaz Wazir Ali, Special Assistant to Prime Minister and Chairperson
Higher Education Commission (HEC).
Ambassador Shin Un stated that this
new offer is over and above the current collaboration of HEC with three other
Korean universities namely Hanyang, Myongji and Seoul National University,

QAU hostels evacuated ahead of long march
Islamabad: Fearing students' participation in
the lawyers' long march on the federal capital, the government on Saturday got
Quaid-i-Azam University hostels vacated and directed its administration to keep
vigil on the campus so that it is not used for any activity which could create
law and order problem.
The university's proximity to the Presidency was the
main concern and the government had reports that its students were planning to
actively participate in the long-march. Therefore, the decision was taken to
vacate the hostels, sources close to the development said.
In the wee hours of last night, the local
administration along with the police came to the campus and asked the students
to leave their hostels immediately. However, on the intervention of the
university administration, it was decided that on Saturday the students would be
asked to leave the campus until March 18.
A senior official of the QAU on condition of
anonymity said it was shocking for everyone at the varsity when police appeared
on the campus after midnight and asked the students to vacate their hostels.
"At least, the local authorities should have informed
the university administration before hand for such an action.
Now when the
whole country is under siege and public transport is off the roads, how could we
ask the students, that too in the middle of the night, to leave the hostels? It
was simply ridiculous," he said, adding the worst sufferers were the girl
In response to a question, he said over 90 per cent
of students living in the hostels had left the campus and the remaining 10 per
cent belonged to the far-flung areas and had no other alternatives; therefore,
the university has allowed them to stay on the campus provided they do not
create any law and order problem.
When asked, the official said the local
administration had argued that due to the proximity of the QAU to Presidency and
the Prime Minister House, it was decided to keep the campus free of any
students' activity during the next few days.
Moreover, the police said they had received credible
information that students from other universities had reached the QAU to
participate in the lawyers' long march.
Meanwhile, other universities both in public and
private sectors in Rawalpindi and Islamabad have also been directed to remain
close at least for the next three days and stop their students from
participating in the long march.
Nosheen Abbas adds: The students expressed
anger at the government decision to evict them from their hostels.
sleeping when someone rudely knocked on my door at 8am," said a student. "They
told us to vacate our hostel immediately since the police were planning to come
and raid the building. But there's no transport!" he exclaimed.
The students who have come from far-flung areas in
pursuit of education were harassed to the point of anger.
"This is tyranny
and we shall protest. We will not stop our protest!" said one of the boys, who
was in the midst of a protest outside the boys' hostel.
Omer Abbasi, a day scholar of the university, added
that he had come from his home in Pindi specifically to help the students stand
up for their fundamental rights. "The problem is that the students have been so
depoliticised over time that they are not even aware of their basic rights."
A boy and girl were walking towards a bus stand with
their pull-trolleys and lugging their bags on their backs. "We don't understand.
They have told us on such a short notice to vacate
out hostels," said the girl student who was carrying her luggage out to the main
They were given only few hours of notice to vacate in
a situation where there is no adequate transport that reaches far-flung areas
such as Chitral and interior of Sindh from where many of these students have
In addition, the students were deeply resentful about the fact
that their studies were being disrupted and that they were being kicked out of
their own rooms. "We are students with dignity and self-respect. Some are doing
their research for their PhDs and here we are being treated like sheep and
"We were simply terrified," said a hijab-clad girl
outside the hostel. When asked how their parents reacted to the situation, she
responded, "we haven't even told our parents because they are so far away; they
cant do anything."
A civil society organisation has condemned the eviction
of students from hostels of the universities in the twin cities, saying the move
The People's Rights Movement in a statement said the
opportunity presented to mainstream political forces to establish supremacy of
civilian institutions in the wake of the general elections last year was being
whittled away by petty power politics and that it was the PPP that has the most
to lose from this game. Dawn
