International Kangaroo Mathematics Contest 2011

42,000 Pakistanis in math contest
Lahore, March 18: Around 42,000 students of more than 500 schools and colleges from all over Pakistan participated in the world's largest International Kangaroo Mathematics Contest (IKMC) on Thursday. The students were from grade III to grade XII.

The "International Association Mathematiques sans Frontiers" organised the contest which is held the world over every year on March 17. This year about 5.5 million students from 56 countries are reported to have appeared in the contest.

Pakistan Kangaroo Commission President Dr A.D. Raza Choudary said in a statement that the main aim of the event was to encourage the young students to give their best performance in mathematics and compete with other students at the international level. It also helps identify creative talent among students.

The association, which has its headquarters in Paris, has won several international awards including the prestigious Paul Eros Prize.

Dr Choudary said ever since Pakistan started participating in the contest six years ago with a modest number of 8,000 students, the Kangaroo commission had observed a very positive response from the Pakistani students as was evident from the five-time increase in their number to about 42,000 this year.

He said there was great enthusiasm among the students to compete at the international level and the fear of mathematics had been replaced by keen interest in the subject. "Now they look forward to challenges in Pakistan. This is an extremely healthy sign for the progress of education in the country as this sort of enthusiasm of the students in mathematics was not seen five years ago," he added. Dawn

Students rally against release
Lahore: Various student organisations staged demonstrations and held rallies to protest against the release of Raymond Davis here on Thursday.

The Insaf Students Federation (ISF), a student wing of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Islamia Jamiat Talaba (IJT) of Jamaat-e-Islami and other student organisations, including Al Muhammadia Students (AMS) Pakistan, organised events in which the youth, especially students, participated and protested against the government for releasing the US citizen.

The ISF held demos at Muslim Town near the FC College, the Punjab University and near the University of Lahore in which hundreds of students participated.

Addressing the protestors, ISF President Hassan Niazi and Secretary General Farrukh Habib said that Davis was not only the culprit of two families rather he had committed crime against the entire Pakistani nation.

They said that by not registering a case under the Anti-Terrorism Act against him, the rulers had exposed their loyalty to the US. They also announced to take out rallies and demos against Davis' release on Friday.

The IJT activists also held demos and took out rallies against the abrupt release of Davis at different educational institutions, including Punjab University (PU) and near the US Consulate, Lahore. The protesters blocked the road for some time and burnt the effigy of Davis.

The Mutahida Talaba Mahaz (MTM) and Pakistan Students Council also took part in the demo held outside the Lahore Press Club near the US Consulate. The protestors staged a sit-in and chanted slogans against the US policies and Pakistani government.

The activists of AMS Pakistan also held a demo against release of Davis outside the press club. AMS activists demanded the government ensure end to drone attacks inside Pakistan and expel all the CIA and Blackwater agents from the country.

Shabab-e-Milli of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) also organised a demo outside the Lahore Press Club and condemned the release of Davis. Meanwhile, the Imamia Students Organization (ISO) announced to observe Friday (today) as black day and to hold demos and rallies against the release of Davis.

PUASA concerned at abrupt release of Davis
Lahore: A large number of teachers of the Punjab University (PU), taking out a rally on the varsity's New Campus on Thursday, expressed strong concern over the abrupt release of US citizen Raymond Davis who killed two Pakistani youth.

The rally organised by the PU Academic Staff Association (ASA) started from the varsity's Institute of Business Administration (IBA) and culminated at Gate No 2 near the Institute of Education & Research (IER).

The rally was led by PUASA President Dr Mahr Muhammad Saeed Akhtar and General Secretary Iftikhar Tarar who said the abrupt release of Raymond Davis had created doubts about the rulers, as it had been proved that he (Raymond Davis) was a CIA agent. The protesting teachers also said the integrity of the whole nation shattered over dramatic release of Raymond Davis, adding Diyat law was forcibly imposed on families of the victims.

They further said releasing a person whose name was on the ECL in just few moments was not appropriate, adding contrary to this case, Pakistani citizen Dr Aafia Siddiqui was imprisoned in the United States under fake and baseless charges.

PUASA demanded the government end its alliance with US, expel all Americans from Pakistan, stop drone attacks and bring back Dr Aafia Siddiqui to Pakistan.

Schoolteachers set up hunger strike camp
Lahore: A large number of government schoolteachers held a token hunger strike camp near the Punjab Assembly here on Thursday and announced boycott of duties in connection with the upcoming census.

The teachers also criticised the Punjab government for not addressing issues faced by them.

The camp was set up by Punjab Teachers Union (PTU) and the Joint Action Committee (JAC) at Faisal Chowk near the Punjab Assembly. Dozens of male and female teachers participated in the camp and expressed strong resentment against different policies of the provincial government.

The teachers led by PTU and JAC office-bearers, including Rana Muhammad Arshad, Syed Sajjad Kazmi and Rana Liaquat, also condemned the authorities of Punjab School Education Department, saying that their problems, instead of decreasing, were on the rise.

According to them, assigning them extra duties, including administering polio vaccine drops to children, census duty, distribution of sugar and bringing out-of-school children to schools, was resulting in poor performance of their students in different examinations.

They said if the same practice of assigning them additional duties continued, the schoolteachers would be unable to complete academic syllabus and even to conduct the school exam.

The PTU and JAC leaders said the teachers were always held accountable for poor results of the students, adding that however those who assigned non-academic duties and assignments to them were never questioned.

They said the ever-increasing inflation had made the schoolteachers' lives miserable while the rulers always remained insensitive.

They also criticised the government for its failure to fully implement the Teachers Package and demanded implementation of the in-service promotion of quota under the four tier formula.

They demanded big city allowance for teachers, promotion to primary, elementary and secondary teachers and BS-16 to all the graduate teachers. They also demanded the government ensure Urdu medium of instructions in schools. They also criticised the alleged interference of NGOs and monitoring cell and demanded the government ensure end to all such interference.

The teachers said they would continue their protest till the acceptance of their demands, adding that a protest rally from Nasir Bagh to Punjab Assembly would be taken out on April 20.

PPP leader and opposition leader in the Punjab Assembly Raja Riaz, PML-Q leader Ch Zaheer Ud Din and some other MPAs also visited the camp and expressed solidarity with the teachers.

It is pertinent to mention here that earlier on March 10 the PTU and JAC had also set up a hunger strike camp outside the Punjab Assembly.
