JT to rally teachers against government

LAHORE, May 22(Daily Times): The Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) has launched a campaign to support teachers in their rallies against the government.

It was learnt that a meeting between the IJT and various teachers' organisations including the Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA), Punjab Professors and Lecturers Association (PPLA) and Muttahida Mahaz Asataza was held at Government Islami College, Civil Lines, on Sunday evening. The participants agreed to launch a countrywide 'Taleem Bachao Muhim' (Save Education Movement) besides expressing their anger over the presidential reference against Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.

The IJT and teachers of colleges and universities planned to join protesting schoolteachers in their rallies against the government. The schoolteachers have been demanding the government stop de-nationalising educational institutions, abolish the contract system to appoint teachers, continue education policies and issue special teaching allowances.

PUASA president Prof Dr Mumtaz Salik, who is also the president of the Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Associations (FAPUASA), said everybody had to unite against the government's plan to privatise a large number of government schools and colleges and against the injustice being committed on the teaching community.

He said privatising and de-nationalising government educational institutions would be a major blow to the poor who could not afford expensive private education. He said the meeting decided that student groups and elected teachers' unions of colleges and universities would help protesting schoolteachers in their campaign against the government.
