College students unruly behaviour

Commuters irked by unruly college students
Taxila, March 14: Unruly behaviour of college students with transporters has turned out to be a source of inconvenience to the commuters, especially women.

The commuters travelling between Taxila and Wah Cantonment complain that students of the technical colleges forcibly stop passengers' buses and manhandle the conductors and drivers over fare issue.

According to the commuters, most of such incidents happen at a stop near Swedish College of Technology, where students often involve themselves in quarrel with the transporters.

"They use abusive language in the presence of women passengers," said Raja Tariq, adding that he had personally witnessed such incidents. "Yesterday, some students climbed up a slow moving bus near the college on the G.T. Road and thrashed its conductor and used indecent language," complained Shahgfta Perveen.

Other commuters said certain students had developed a habit of smashing windowpanes of buses with stones. On the other hand, Shahryar Muzamil, a student of the college, said public transporters refused to board us and demanded fare from us.

He said most of the students were reluctant to pay the fares, leading to clash between them and the transporters.

Police officials at Taxila and Wah Cantonment police stations confirmed that they had received several complaints from transporters, who alleged that students often resorted to thrashing bus crew and damaging the windowpanes of their buses. The news

Entry of NIP internees banned
Islamabad: The internees working under the National Internship Programme (NIP) have been banned to enter the Ministry of Zakat and Ushr office by the Joint Secretary Aftab Mehmood Qureshi after publication of a news item against the ministry on Saturday.

The internees claimed that they were banned because the officials think they were the source of that news story regarding nepotism in the appointments of low-grade posts in the ministry.

There were six internees working in the Ministry of Zakat and Ushr under the NIP, but Muhammad Basharat Hussain and Muhammad Abrar were specially targeted by the top management.

Muhammad Basharat Hussain, an affectee, said, "When I tried to enter the office of the ministry, the security personnel stopped me at the reception. When I asked the reason, they said that the Joint Secretary Aftab Mehmood Qureshi passed an order not to give permission to any internee to enter the office premises." However, he said that when he again tried to enter the office the security personnel threw him out by passing derogatory remarks and threatened him of dire consequences if he again comes to the office of the ministry.

Muhammad Basharat Hussain said that the reason given for this 'victimisation' was that he was the source of that news story published against the ministry. He said, "I have nothing to do with any news story, as I am just working here as an internee under the NIP."

Muhammad Abrar, another affectee, said, "I have also been victimised in the same manner. I feel there is some misconception in top management about us."

It is pertinent to mention here that another internee, Muhammad Asim, who had quitted the internship programme three months back, also filed an application against the rude behaviour of the joint secretary in the Prime Minister Complaint Cell.

Ministry of Zakat and Ushr Secretary Khalid Idrees said, "We have already terminated these internees and no one is going to be victimised in any way. We have no more work for them and they have to report to the National Internship Programme office." However, it also merits mentioning here that the Ministry of Zakat and Ushr has not given these internees any letter.

When Joint Secretary Aftab Mehmood Qureshi contacted he said, "For the sake of discipline in the ministry, I have to take such kinds of steps and these internees have not only been expelled from the Ministry of Zakat and Ushr, but I have also blacklisted them and now they will not be eligible for any government service in Pakistan. No one is going to be victimised by me or by the ministry," he added.

Science culture promotion
Islamabad: Science culture is yet to flourish, especially among young people, who lag nothing in terms of potential and talent, but only require proper opportunities to excel in the field of science and technology, Director General National Centre for Physics (NCP) Dr. Hamid Saleem said.

In an interview after conclusion of weeklong International Scientific Spring 2010, he said, no one could deny the importance of research in present circumstances because no nation can move in the direction of human progress and development without having an urge to probe and find out the truth.

Describing the main aim of establishment of NCP, he said the basic purpose is to promote research in emerging fields of physics as per international norms of productivity and originality and to act as an entity for acquisition, generation, transmission and dissemination of knowledge in physics for universities and R & D institutions.

He said NCP has various departments that are providing scientific education to students including theoretical physics, nano-sciences, earth study centre, global change impact centre, and experimental high-energy physics.

Replying to a question he said the department of experimental high-energy physics is mainly working in collaboration with CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, founded in 1954.

CERN Laboratory is at France-Swiss Border near Geneva. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter - the fundamental particles.

Dr Hamid Saleem said that a 8 MV Pelletron Tandem Accelerator facility based on sophisticated state-of-art technology has been installed at Experimental Physics Directorate, NCP, which is functional for research and academic projects.

"The facility extends enormous opportunities for research to the young scientists, engineers and researchers both from national universities and R&D organizations," he said. He said global change impact studies centre was established on the initiative of Dr Ashfaq Ahmad in 2002 as a research organization with a focus on climate change and related global issues and in December 2006 it was transferred to National Centre for Physics (NCP) as an autonomous organization.

Dilating upon the main objectives of global change impact studies centre he said it helps keep a track of the current and likely future trends of climate change; develop a national capacity for climate change research; analyse and evaluate its impacts on key sectors e.g. food and water security; and raise public awareness about climate change related issues. NCP is offering basic facilities to conduct research in various fields including centrifuge, accelerator, fission and fusion, coating, medical and pharmaceutical, semiconductor, solar, live stock, plasma sterilization, food processing and packaging.

He said various measures are being taken to produce high quality research papers in international journals and have international collaboration for research in highly technical and advanced areas of physics besides facilitating Pakistani universities in establishing contacts with international institutes to optimise the utilization of available options. "Industrialists should facilitate NCP to establish a link of basic research being carried out in Pakistan and media should help NCP in its efforts to create awareness among the youth about the importance of science and technology," he said.
