Al-Khair University: No degree recognision by HEC

Al-Khair University: No degree acceptable after April 30: HEC
Islamabad, May 18: The participants of the 18th meeting of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) on Saturday expressed reservations about continued 'substandard operation' of Al-Khair University.

A press release said to safeguard interests of students and ensure provision of quality education in Pakistan, the HEC had directed that Al-Khair University must stop all new admissions and that the commission would not recognise any degree issued to students by the university after April 30, 2009.

Al-Khair University, with a charter issued by government of the AJK, was not legally authorised to open any campus, grant affiliation or have franchises in any area of Pakistan unless it had got approval from government of the province concerned in addition to having academic jurisdiction in that particular area, it said.

It said the HEC had been forced to take the decision not to recognise the degrees issued to students admitted to Al-Khair University after April 30, in light of the fact that the university had not established a proper main campus in AJK that was the minimum requirement as per Cabinet Criteria and guidelines for establishment of a new university.

It said the university was offering degree programmes in professional disciplines such as law, pharmacy, electrical engineering, homeopathy etc and was not meeting the minimum criteria for accreditation.

Over the years, the AJK president had also directed the university to meet the standards set for quality education, build the infrastructure required and hire necessary faculty members, it said.

It said these critical issues had not been addressed by the university leading to the decision of the commission not to accept future enrolments into any academic programmes of Al-Khair University.

To ensure that the students currently enrolled in this university did not suffer, the commission had constituted a committee to address the issue.

"Dear students of Al Khair University The degree of students who were enrolled/admitted before 30th April 2009 will be accepted and validated by H.E.C., even the degrees of students appearing in 2010 Exams will also be accepted by HEC. Al Khair University has been given an additional time of 2 years (from July 2008 till June 2010) by the HEC on the special recommendations of President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari to complete its own setup in Kashmir. And as per HEC requirements, more than 80 Kanals of land has been acquired by Al Khair University at Bimber AJK and construction work is about to start. HEC also issued a letter on 6th August 2009 that the efforts taken by the University towards fullfilment of cabinet criteria are encouraging. We along with all students request the authorities to help the sponsors of all private sector Universities in their problems as they are contributing alot for society along with Govt Universities.

"As per AJK constitution, Al-Khair University has no legal authority to open any campus outside its territorial jurisdiction i.e. with in Pakistan or abroad. Thus, for opening any campus in Pakistan it shall required to get affiliation or to get approval from the government concerned having full academic jurisdiction in that particular area. Factually, Al-Khair University had not established any proper main campus in AJK which was the minimum requirement for establishment of a new university. But the university was offering multiple degree programmes in professional disciplines such as law, pharmacy, electrical engineering, homeopathy etc even without meeting the minimum requisite criteria for accreditation of HEC. Further, the so-called ghost campuses of Al-Khair University in Pakistan are only selling degrees, and thus nothing more than money making machines. Therefore, the supreme court of Pakistan should take 'suo-motu' notice against Al-Khair University in order to safeguard the future of young generation."

QAU students demand ban on political activities on campus
Islamabad: The Quaid-e-Azam University (QAU) students have demanded a ban on political activities to maintain peace on the campus.

They said some political activists were trying to establish Islami Jamiat-e-Tulba's (IJT) wing in the university. The students said they would not allow any political organisation to disturb peaceful environment of the university.

Fahad Khan Yousafzai, a student of International Relations Department said on Sunday that a few IJT activists, who were expelled from the Punjab University, recently had gotten admission in the QAU under a conspiracy to ruin peaceful atmosphere of the university. Yousafzai said they had submitted a petition to the QAU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Qasim Jan to stop IJT from political activities in the university. He said the IJT activists were harassing students by lodging fabricated cases against them with the Secretariat Police Station.

Another student from the MPA Department said the IJT activists had set up a camp at QAU on Thursday on the pretext of collecting money for displaced persons from restive areas of the country, but some other students stopped them from political activities on the campus.

Mir Jalbani, a student of Anthropology Department said since the IJT had only a few activists in the university, they called their friends from other institutions for establishing their hold on the campus, but the QAU students successfully drove them out.

Hammad, a student of Defence and Strategic Studies, said IJT was intimidating students to gain hold in the university.

Hafiz Farhan, a leading IJT activist in the QAU, said all the students had the freedom of expression. Farhan said he and his friends were collecting money for the IDPs when other students beat them up. Daily Times

QAU ASA to start protest today
Islamabad: The Academic Staff Association (ASA) of Quaid-i-Azam University has decided to start a protest campaign from today (Monday) against the non-acceptance of its demands of BPS incentive scheme, upgradation of hardship cases and regularisation of contractual faculty members.

Wearing black armbands, faculty members would assemble in front of the Central Library of the university at 10:30 a.m. today. They would move to the Administration Building in the form of a rally. They would continue their protest for one hour on alternate days, while black armbands would be worn on all working days, said a statement of the ASA.

The BPS Incentive Scheme was part of the Tenure Track System (TTS) in vogue in the university since July 2007. Somehow the letter written in 2003 offering incentives to the non-TTS faculty went missing from files. It was only last year that the HEC executive director gave its copy to the ASA and the process started. The scheme was adopted by the syndicate early this year but with certain conditions disputed by the teachers' representative organ.

The other issue relates to hardship cases. Universities of Punjab, Peshawar, Gomal and Balochistan had already implanted the scheme in December 2008.

According to sources, the Standing Committee of National Assembly on Education had sent a letter to the QAU Syndicate not to discuss the issue of leave vacancy of some professors that marred the whole atmosphere at the Syndicate meeting, casting aspersions on other cases.

Expressing deep concern on the withdrawal of courses from a recently retired faculty member, the executive meeting decided to take it up in the next meeting. The News

Contract teachers lose it all
Islamabad: Scores of contract teachers who had been regularised by the Federal Directorate of Education in January, and given three years to acquire professional qualifications, have been fired instead.

In its dismissal order of March 25 the Directorate took the plea its January 29 order regarding their regularisation stated that it was "subject to revision, modification and cancellation as and when found necessary".

However the 31 male and 46 female teachers hit by the axe find it cruel. Why couch the regularisation order in a language that defies natural law and kills the justice it sought to do to the contract teachers, they ask.

They said they were entitled to continue in service on regular basis unless anyone of them failed to secure CT or BEd degree within three years.

They had been teaching on contract in government schools in and around Islamabad for years, all the time struggling for the status of regular teachers.

In January 2009, the Directorate notified that teachers of English and Science subjects on contract were being regularised on temporary basis with effect from July 1, 2008. They would be re-designated as Trainee Undergraduate (TUGT) in BPS-14 on the fixed pay of Rs4,920 per month, along with usual allowances.

They were to be treated as untrained TUGT and were given three years to acquire professional degree of CT or BEd, otherwise their services will be terminated.

It promised the teacher who secured the degree the running scale of TUGT and seniority in the cadre according to relevant rules.

However, the notification simultaneously stated that the regularisation step was "temporary, terminable on fortnight notice, without assigning any reason".

And that is what the Directorate did just eight weeks later.

Its March 25, 2009 order said "the order issued on January 29, regarding regularisation of English and Science teachers contract as TUGT is hereby cancelled/withdrawn/undone as they do not fulfil the requisite professional qualification for the post as prescribed in the existing recruitment rules".

The dismissed teachers argue that being probationers, the continuation of their services depended upon their performance which was never found wanting.

"Moreover", they say, "other terms and conditions applicable to government employees do not provide for the possibility of termination of service without a departmental inquiry/show cause notice on misconduct, which was not the case here."

The teachers say that the so-called condition that the regularisation order was "subject to revision, modification and cancellation as and when found necessary" mocks at the well settled law that no civil servant can be condemned unheard.

"Law does not allow the government to undo an order that had created rights in favour of citizens," one of them said. Dawn

Educational institutions role in relief work lauded
Islamabad: The educational institutions are actively playing their role in relief activities for the internally displaced persons (IDPs) who have been dislocated from the areas of Swat and Buner.

Whenever any untoward situation occurs in the country, the students at school, college and university level come forward with their support.

This time also the students of twin cities are voluntarily offering their services to bring smile on the faces of children.

Besides collecting funds for them, the students are individually visiting the relief camps to give affectees relief packages and to share their sorrows. The educational institutions both public and private, are arranging different fund raising campaigns to highlight the miserable plight of the displaced people who without having a single penny in their hands were compelled to take refuge at scattered places.

Director Model Colleges, Federal Directorate of Education (FDE), Mujahid Zameer said that FDE will extend its all out support for accommodating the displaced people and bring normalcy in their lives.

The displaced children will be accommodated in government schools and model colleges in the federal capital.

Before admission, they have to show their ID cards or anything which can indicate that they have come from Swat area, he informed.

These students will be provided uniform, books and whatever item they need like flour, oil, tea or clothing.

The circulars have been issued by FDE to the head of all the institutes for mobilizing the students toward making contribution for empty handed displaced persons who were compelled to take refuge in different camps.

FDE will hold a meeting with principals of the schools and colleges to instruct them about the plans to assist the IDPs.

There are 20 model colleges, eight F.G colleges and more than 300 F.G schools in the federal capital where the displaced children will be admitted, Mujahid Zameer said.

Managing Director FDE and all the directors will take steps to provide maximum support to them besides extending educational facility.

Regional Academic Coordinator, The City School, Mrs Safinaz Hassan said that the administration of the school has dispatched relief goods to the people of Swat, a week before displacement. After coordinating with DCO of Swat, three trucks carrying ration were sent to Swat, she informed.

Around 500 students were studying in different branches of the city school in the Swat areas and the school administration has allowed those students to continue their study anywhere. Without seeing any documents, they will be accommodated in any branch of the schools, she said.Few students of matric class have already been accommodated in the school's campus in Mardan. While the students of O level were shifted to other centres in cooperation with British Council.

The social welfare society in Mardan's campus became active after the displacement and they were provided eating utensils and crockery at their camps on their own initiatives.

The school administration has targeted one of the government school with 600 IDPs and it has taken the entire responsibility to provide them support and to bring normalcy in their lives, she told.

Similarly, fund raising has been started in all the branches of the school to provide cash amount to IDPs.

Director Roots Schools System, Mrs Riffat Mushtaq said that the school being an active member of Red Crescent Society always come forward to extend its support. "Our students remain at the forefront whenever there had been any disaster or calamity", she said Personal letters were issued to all the students for mobilizing them to participate in the fund raising and other relief activities for the IDPs, she said.

"We are mainly targeting the children between the ages of two and a half year to 11 years. The students brought food packs from their homes and one week collection will be delivered to the IDPs at their camps," she said.

Besides, a cheque of one day salaries of the staff will be presented to the Prime Minister Relief Fund, she told.

She was of the view that illiteracy is the root cause of all the problems and we must unitedly formulate any strategy to enrol every child in the school.

Riffat Mushtaq suggested that the government teachers who were serving in Swat should be gathered either at Peshawar or some other point and be inducted in the camps for educating the children on priority basis. App

GSIS holds Kindergarten graduation
Islamabad: The Global System of Integrated Studies (GSIS) held the graduation ceremony of its Kindergarten class here Saturday, where children entertained the guests and parents with their talent.

The children welcomed Chairman CDA Tariq Mehmood and his wife, who were the chief guests of the ceremony that included songs, poems and plays, presented by colourfully dressed students of KG and Pre Nursery classes, who performed with confidence and poise.

Addressing the ceremony after welcoming the chief guests and others, Principal GSIS Qurat-ul-Ain appreciated the efforts of the teachers, who had trained the little children for the function, adding that public speaking is not an art but more of a skill.

"At our institution, we encourage all children to be able to express their ideas freely and confidently, which plays a major role in enhancing their personality and goes a long way in their lives later on," she said.

"Our goal is to develop children into independent, creative and imaginative thinkers," she said and urged the parents to also create a friendly atmosphere at their homes, so that children could easily share their feelings with them. Later, the results of Pre-Nursery and Nursery classes were announced. The News
