Manhandling of teachers: SPLA to observe black day today
Karachi: College teachers across Sindh will observe a black day on Thursday (today) to lodge their protest against the manhandling of some teachers of the DJ Govt Science College by students activists on Tuesday.

The Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) has given the protest call.

However, the SPLA secretary (Karachi chapter), Prof Iftikhar Azmi, clarified that the ongoing Higher Secondary Certificate examinations will not be affected on Thursday in the wake of college teachers' black day because the teachers would perform their invigilation duties as usual.

The college teachers would wear black armbands and hoist black flags on college buildings to express resentment over the disagreeable incident which occurred at the DJ Science College on Tuesday, he added.

The provincial Director-General (Colleges), Prof Rafiq Ahmed Siddiqui, who visited the DJ Science College on Wednesday, denounced the incident and assured full cooperation to the teachers of the college on behalf of the education department.

Meanwhile, an emergency meeting of teachers of the DJ Science College on Wednesday strongly condemned the incident and endorsed the SPLA's call for observing a black day on Thursday.

The principal of the college, Prof Hakeem Baig Chughtai, chaired the meeting, which was also attended by the SPLA's office-bearers including Prof Ather Hussain Mirza, Prof Muzzaffar Ali Rizvi, Prof Iftikhar Azmi, Prof Mohsin Raza Bhatti, Prof Arshad.

The meeting also adopted a resolution, urging the Sindh governor and the chief minister to remove the offices of the students' organisations affiliated with political and religious parties from the premises of all the colleges and take stern action against the students who indulge in hooliganism and unhealthy activities.

It also demanded of the Sindh government to immediately restore student unions in colleges for the promotion of healthy activities.

Through another resolution, it deplored that the regional director colleges neither visited the DJ Science College nor rang up to inquire about the ugly incident in which some students manhandled college teachers.

Meanwhile, SPLA president Prof Ather Hussain Mirza said that a four-member delegation of the Islami Jamiat Talaba, comprising its members Tehseen and Hamad-ur-Rehman, called on the office-bearers of the SPLA and regretted over the incident.

"The IJT team also assured the SPLA that they will present the students involved in the incident before the college authorities so that they may take whatever action they deemed appropriate against them," Prof Mirza said. Dawn
