Madrassa affiliation with AIOU
Islamabad: The Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) have been offering the affiliation of Dars-e-Nizami
Courses offered at religious seminaries since 2000 but due to lack of
coordination within the system the ratio of beneficiaries have been very
The course of Shahada-Al-Almia being offered at madrasas is equivalent
to MA and the Higher Education Commission (HEC) has also recognised this degree
but other courses including Sanvia Aama, Sanvia Khasa and Shahadat-ul-Al-Almia
equalivent to Matric, FA and BA respectively are not recognised degrees.†
madrasa students are asked to give Matric, Intermediate and BA examination
afresh to get recognised degrees from boards to get jobs.†
"But if the
students of religious seminaries would give just the papers of English, Urdu and
Pakistan Studies through the university they don't need to give the examination
of all the subjects and they would get degrees equivalent to Matric, FA and BA"
informed the Dean Faculty of Arabic and Islamiat at AIOU, Muhammad Baqir
Mufti Gulzar Ahmad Naeemi of Jamia Naeemia G-9/3 said "our students
from this year have given their examination as private candidates through
Federal Board so that they could get recognized degrees despite that they have
been also studying Dars-e- Nizami courses at madrasas".†
He said the students
spend their precious time energies in completing theses courses but due to
non-affiliation of theses degrees with the Examination Boards their degrees are
not acknowledged. And the students cannot apply for the government as well as
private jobs.†The Nation
Academicians concerned at mushrooming of general universities
Peshawar: The mushrooming of public sector general universities in the
underdeveloped Frontier province has invited serious concern of senior
academicians, who say the government as well as Higher Education Commission
should strengthen the postgraduate colleges instead of opening university every
here and there.
"In principle it is right to set up more and more
universities in the province. But I think it would affect the standard of
education in our province, where qualified manpower is already short," said Prof
Dr Javed Khan, a senior faculty member of the University of Peshawar.
He was of the opinion that there was a shortage
of properly qualified faculty in several departments of the University of
Peshawar - the largest and oldest public sector general varsity of the province
- wherefrom qualified teachers would be arranged at the remote
"I personally think that more focus should be on strengthening
the graduate and
postgraduate colleges. The degree colleges could be
converted to degree awarding institutes for promotion of quality education,"
Prof Dr Javed added.
President of Federation of All Pakistan University
Academic Staff Association Dr Arbab Khan Afridi, when contacted, said it was not
a good trend. The government should strengthen the already established
universities before going ahead with more universities. He said more
universities would help nothing except increasing the non-development
expenditures and burden the national exchequer. "The administrative charges on
one university exceed an amount of Rs8 million per month. This amount could be
better utilised on uplift projects in education sector," he said.
Arbab, who is also president of Peshawar University Teachers Association (PUTA),
said they had also opposed the establishment of Islamia College University (ICU)
adjacent to the University of Peshawar. The same could have been set up at
Charsadda, Mardan or Swabi, where spacious pieces of land owned by the historic
Islamia College were laying unutilised. But the government was adamant on
converting the ICP into a university, he said.
Dr Javed Khan, who has
been serving as acting vice-chancellor of UoP for the last eight months, however
said that the faculty of ICP should have opposed the idea of Islamia College
University right in the beginning. But now as an ordinance for establishment of
ICU has been promulgated, the governor should appoint a vice-chancellor for it
at the earliest.
Four public sector general universities - University of
Peshawar, Gomal University, DI Khan, Hazara University Mansehra and Malakand
University, Chakdara, Dir Lower - are presently operating in the province.
Two universities for science and technology - Kohat University for
Science and Technology and Bannu University for Science and Technology - are
also functioning in the public sector. Besides, the NWFP has got one each
university in medical, engineering and agriculture profession - Khyber Medical
University, NWFP University of Engineering and Technology and NWFP Agricultural
The government recently upgraded Islamia College Peshawar to
university level. NWFP Chief Minister Ameer Haider Hoti, who hails from Mardan,
has also announced establishment of a general university in his hometown. The
same was also promised by Federal Minister for Population Welfare Khwaja
Mohammad Khan Hoti during his election campaign. It is also learnt that Jahanzeb
College Mingora is also being converted into a university. The News
