SZABIST's unjust treatment puts student career in jeopardy
Karachi: A scholarship holder of Sindh government's endowment fund was dismissed from a privately-run institute of higher education before the completion of his degree.

The student claims that he was targeted for sending his complaint regarding theft of his cellular phones from the institute to the Chief Justice of Supreme Court and other highly placed authorities. The student in question, Imran Khan Sial said that on October 14, he was dismissed as a student by Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology (SZABIST) when he was only a few weeks away from completing his MBA degree programme. He said that his only fault was that he approached the Chief Justice of Pakistan and other superior authorities against what he termed sheer apathy of the institute's administration to resolve the pressing problems of the students.

Sial said that three precious cellular phone sets were stolen from his bag, at the SZABIST Karachi campus on September 26. One belonged to him while the other two belonged to his two brothers. Due to the subsequent inaction of the institute's disciplinary committee to provide suitable compensation for the loss of cell phones, he was compelled to send his complaint to the Chief Justice of Pakistan and others for getting justice.

He wrote in his complaint to the Chief Justice of Pakistan and other authorities: "Before this several students have lost their precious laptops, mobile phone sets, USB sticks etc but unfortunately nobody takes the notice of these complaints at SZABIST and as a result the culprits are encouraged and such kind of incidents are on a constant increase."

Other than the Chief Justice, Sial sent his complaint to the chairman and project-director, SZABIST, Chief Justice of Sindh High Court, Chairman Higher Education Commission, Federal and Sindh education ministers, chairman Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), Zonal director PTA, CPLC chief, Federal and Sindh Ombudsmen, and Senate Standing Committee on Information and Broadcasting.

Sial said he was informed by certain members of the institute's disciplinary committee that by sending his complaint to Chief Justice of Pakistan about the institute he had diminished the chances of President SZABIST Senator, Dr Javaid R Laghari from becoming the new chairman of the Higher Education Commission (HEC). "When I was informed that writing to the Chief Justice of Pakistan will put my institute and its president in an unfavourable light, and likely initiate a suo moto proceeding against them, I duly apologised to the authorities of the institute and held out the assurance that I will not correspond with the Chief Justice again. But even then I got debarred from continuing my studies at the institute," he said.

The institute's authorities, on the other hand, said that Sial's dismissal from the institute had become inevitable due to his poor academic performance owing to "consistent failures in semester examinations and the lack of attendance in his MBA classes." Sial said that the dismissal notice served to him on October 14 contained three charges including misconduct, misbehaving, and poor academic performance. Then after one day, another dismissal letter was sent to him adding the allegation of 'Non-cooperation' in the charge-sheet against him, he said.

"For all these charges I should have been served show-cause notices in advance to give me the due opportunity to clarify my position on the issue. For poor academic performance, I should have received probation letters in the previous semesters but neither of the two happened and all of a sudden I was dismissed from the institute," said Sial.

"I personally saw four probation letters in Sial's file and for one thing I'm quite sure that given his poor performance he would be unable to complete his MBA degree in the next two years," said Deputy-Director SZABIST, Azra Maqsood. She said that giving Sial the rare endowment fund scholarship by the Sindh government was a complete waste and he had usurped the right to higher education of a more deserving and eligible student from the underprivileged class of the province.

About the charge that Sial was dismissed as he had written to the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Azra said that sending a complaint to the chief justice was a fundamental right of every citizen and no person or institute including the SZABIST could discourage anybody from doing so. "SZABIST is a responsible institute being governed through strict and well defined rules and regulations and any disciplinary action against a student is taken after a thorough process and all legal needs are fulfilled," said Azra. She added that no student can ever be debarred from SZABIST merely for writing to the Chief Justice.

Karim Bux Sirohi, who recently retired as Sindh Special Secretary Education, said that surely a beneficiary of the Endowment fund scholarship of the provincial education department has to show consistent performance in academics to continue to receive scholarship in every semester of higher education.

Meanwhile, in a statement Manager External Affairs SZABIST, Anwarul Haq said that Sial was dismissed from SZABIST due to poor academic performance and as per SZABIST academic guidelines. All other allegations are false, fabricated and with mala fide intent to malign an institution and its faculty.

Mohammad Khan Sial, father of Imran Sial who had retired from the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), said that his son should be given the due right of appeal at the institute against the decision and findings of SZABIST disciplinary committee. The News
