IJT activists demand revival of PMDC rules
Peshawar: Activists of Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT) of Khyber Medical College Friday staged a protest demonstration, demanding the government to revive Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) Rules for medical institutions in the province.

Led by their college president Hafiz Jamiullah, the protesting students gathered outside the Peshawar Press Club and chanted slogans against Khyber Medical University (KMU) and the new HEC rules implemented at the medical colleges. They were also holding placards inscribed with slogans highlighting their demands.

The demonstrators were of the view that before the establishment of KMU, medical and dental colleges in the province were run under Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC). Now that the university has been established under the Model University Ordinance, under which new criteria for promotion of teachers has been introduced, the senior faculty members of the KMC are joining other institutions for offering better packages.

They said as many as 20 senior faculty members had so far left the institution and others were about to leave. It is a matter of serious concern for both the teachers and students of the province's major and popular medical institution. They demanded of the government to revive the PMDC rules, instead of the newly implemented HEC ones, and save the college from being de-recognised. The News

Education for all
Literacy is the heart and lifeblood of development. Without it, Pakistan will remain an impoverished and weak Third World country. If education does not prevail, the problems of Pakistan will reach a stage that it will become very vulnerable.

Statistically, Pakistan has made reasonable march since independence in many fields including education. Less than one million students were enrolled in schools at the time of independence. Today, 12 million school-age children are enrolled. But another more than 12 million children are doing child labour, putting their lives in danger and missing quality education. As a matter of fact, full enrolment in primary education is still not a reality, but a dream.

The recent census tallies in China and India show that Pakistan is substantially behind the two large Asian nations. China's literacy rate is near 90% and India has reached 65%. Pakistanis are said to be around 50 % (if these figures are true) and this means we need to do better. Moreover, it's a matter of shame too, because we have far less population than megaliths like China and India. The new set up has a huge task of making the real push for education.

As I said, 100 % literacy is not a reality but a dream but the nations succeed who dream. We have to take measures for education for all.
